I Am Rotary - Jack Christie

Originally from St. Stephen, Jack has Miramichi roots through his mother who was a McCarthy from Nelson. A graduate of Mount Allison in business and accounting, he obtained his Professional Accountant designation while working for Clarkes & Borden in Saint John. Jack cites the Bricklin receivership as one of the more interesting cases he was involved with during his time with this firm. Following Saint John, Jack went on to work in Barcelona Spain and in London Ontario, before coming to Miramichi to work on a computer system for Northumberland COOP in 1987. This contract work turned into a 26 year managerial position, looking after dairy, food preparation, and home supplies for the COOP and TimberMart until his retirement. Jack has been a member of the club since 1988, and has served as president, secretary, and assistant DG, as well as being involved in club activities. He is the current treasurer for both the Newcastle Rotary Club Foundation and Rotary District 7810. He was the charter treasurer for the local Hospital Foundation, and has also served as provincial president for the Association of Professional Accountants. Outside of Rotary and work, Jack has been married to Irene for 22 years, is an avid fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Blue Jays, and likes to travel (50+ countries and counting).
