Lee serves as the Business Manager which of course includes keeping the finances in order, but somehow also includes building maintenance, all building projects, and the preschool finances. Don’t let Lee’s kind spirit fool you: as a former Army Ranger he is more than capable of defending the building and keeping order! Lee joined the OSL staff in the Fall of 2022. He and his family have been members of OSL since 2001.
Lee and his wife Kari have been married for 26 years and have one daughter, Kailey, who is a junior in high school. Lee enjoys spending time with family, listening to music, and watching sports, including two of his favorites, fellow alums Tony Romo and Jimmy Garoppolo. While Lee’s time at Eastern Illinois did not result in an NFL quarterback career, he did earn a Bachelor of Science in Business and a master’s degree in business administration from Troy State University.
In his own words: I love the people, feeling of community, and the Biblical teaching at OSL.
A favorite Bible verse: The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into His heavenly kingdom. To Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen (2 Timothy 4:18).
