Community

Founded and based in Denver, Colorado, we at J2T recognize the importance of participating in our community and giving back locally, nationally, and globally. Though our corporate initiatives, financial contributions, and individual volunteering, we support the following organizations; this list continues to grow and evolve.

J2T Corporate Community Engagement

J2T Women's Networking Events

Julie’s passion for women in business and belief that rich relationships are the fabric of who we are laid the groundwork for J2T’s Women’s Networking Events. Hosted monthly, these are wildly popular—and always spirited, dynamic, and honest.  They bring the best of the best in Denver and Boulder’s finance community together for a roundtable, facilitated by industry.  Topics to date have covered Millennials, compensation and understanding your worth in the market, and creating a seat at the table.

American Lung Association

Melissa's passion extends beyond her career into the areas of health and art. Melissa is an active member of the American Lung Association Board, Colorado Chapter. We all need to breath and we want to breath clean air and the ALA provides critical research to help treat and prevent lung disease and other lung-related health issues. They also have a Clean Air Task Force that has been critical in improving air quality and overall lung health for people nationwide, lessening the chance of non-smokers developing lung disease as well.

J2T Recruiter Individual Engagement

The Denver Hospice

Julie’s father and co-founder of J2T passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2004. Julie was privileged to have been with her father when he passed peacefully. This experience was the foundation for her desire to work closely with patients at end of life and volunteer with The Denver Hospice. Hospice care provides comfort to terminally ill patients who have stopped medical treatment and their family. The heart of this specialized care is the belief that every individual has the right to die pain-free and with dignity.

As an active member, she serves as the chair for the Alumni Engagement Sub-committee that is tasked with connecting accounting alumni, supporting and attending on-campus events, and has recently become a student mentor.

Dumb Friends League

We all love animals here at J2T but Monica’s passion for our furry four-legged friends goes above and beyond. She recently adopted her cat Ka$h from the Denver Dumb Friends League and can be spotted toting him around downtown Denver in his fancy cat-pack (a kitty0friendly backpack). You can see more antics on Ka$h’s Instagram:  @kash_meow_side.

International Rescue Committee

In college, Kady spent a summer abroad and it opened her eyes to how lucky we are to live in a country like ours. She believes that everyone should have the right to create and live their lives the way they choose; where you are born should not dictate your circumstances. As such, Kady supports the International Rescue Committee in their efforts to provide assistance to those whose lives have been shattered by conflict and disaster to regain control of their future.

Charlene’s involvement has been enriching, stimulating and informational. She continues to enjoy the time she spends volunteering and the impact it has on our community.

Wellshire Presbyterian Church

Jll has been a member of Wellshire for over 20 years and the church has offered her abundant opportunities to serve others through both local and global missions. She has volunteered her time to care for infants, teach children, escort elderly in need of physical assistance, lead a young families group, as well as serve in leadership capacity. All of the volunteer opportunities at Wellshire have allowed her to grow as a human while working side-by-side with people who want the very best for her.

Heather became involved with this organization after a close friend’s diagnosis over four years ago. The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is the leader in research, education and patient support for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Running and raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society became a priority for Heather when her uncle was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. She has run two marathons—the Nike Women’s Marathon and the Denver Marathon—to raise awareness and necessary funds for the organization for research, patient support, and policy and advocacy.

Colorado State University

Molly was originally introduced to the faculty as a recruiter/accountant at her previous job. She loved being on campuses and sharing her knowledge with students, so when the faculty circled back around and asked her to present, she couldn’t refuse. She now volunteers her time as a speaker on CSU’s campus for intro accounting and junior level classes. Molly loves working with students who are thirsty for knowledge and excited about the future. She’s had a bit of a different journey in the world of accounting and this is an opportunity to share that adventure with students.

Girl Scouts

Heather’s commitment to the Girl Scouts goes beyond her 10 years of volunteering—she’s also been a Troop Leader for two different troops. With community service at its core, her troops have supported ALS, worked with Volunteers of America, donated cookies to Judy’s House, donated art supplies to Children’s Hospital, collected stuffed animals for Catholic Charity Resources, and participated in local park clean up. Additionally, they have summited a “14er”, gone snowshoeing, done primitive camping, hiked all over Colorado, and a lot more outdoor activities.  Both troops have earned their Bronze Award: one is working on Silver, the other on Gold—the highest award.
