Jerry S. Russell Is New Vice President for Finance
Washington Conference welcomed Jerry S. Russell as vice president for finance in March.
Russell is coming to Western Washington from the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference where he served for more than 20 years, first as assistant Adventist Book Center manager and then as associate treasurer.
Russell was born in New York City, grew up in South Lancaster, Mass., attended Takoma Academy in Maryland, and graduated from Southern Adventist University in 1986.
His wife, Sharon (Kenerson), is a registered nurse certified in lactation consulting. The Russells have three daughters: Brittany, a freshman at Southern Adventist University; Kirsten, a freshman at Madison Academy; and Haley, a fifth-grader. The Russells enjoy the outdoors, camping and traveling.
"It is an honor for Washington Conference to have Jerry Russell join our team," said John Freedman, Washington Conference president. "The Russell family has a rich history of serving the church, and we welcome his financial leadership."
