MARION, OH – Two new members have been welcomed to the Marion Community Foundation Board of Directors, announced president and CEO Dean L. Jacob. The new board members include Jeremy Dunn and Fran Voll. These new members bring the board to its full complement of 15 members.

Jeremy Dunn, a Marion native, graduated from Pleasant High School in 2001 and spent the next seven years completing studies at Southeastern University and starting his professional career with JPMorgan Chase & Co. in Lakeland, Florida. Moving back to Marion in 2008, Dunn continued his career with JPMorgan, overseeing a $6 billion portfolio of assets in the Treasury Services and Securities business line until 2010.

Dunn is a founding board member with Marion Direct, a local non-profit organization serving individuals with secure, sober living environments. He also established Life.Money, a financial literacy provider for young adults and secondary school students. He is currently launching a financial literacy effort in Zambia, Africa, in partnership with YMCA Zambia, Peace Corps Zambia and the Zambia Ministry of Education.

Also working at McDaniel Automotive as the Business Development Manager since February 2014, Dunn helps define business strategies involving multiple aspects of the business.
He holds two bachelor’s degrees — in finance and management — and a Master’s Degree in Accounting.

Dunn’s community involvements include supporting Rushmore Academy, North Central Ohio Rehabilitation Center, Juvenile Detention Center, Marion Matters and Boys & Girls Club.
