Congratulations to our Helen G. Nassif YMCA Branch Director, Eric Petersen on an amazing 37 year career!


We celebrated the long and successful career of Eric Petersen on his last day at the YMCA on July 30th, 2021! Eric has been working for the Y for 37 years, and has worn many hats. It is a bittersweet time saying goodbye (we’d like to think of it as a “see you later”) to Eric as he has dedicated his profession to helping and serving people in our community.

THANK YOU Eric, you will be greatly missed!

We are also saying a bittersweet farewell to our Membership Director, Alex Jordan. Alex has worked at the YMCA in many roles over the last 11 years. Many will miss his humor and welcoming attitude at the Helen G. Nassif front desk!

Alex is moving on to new opportunities in Illinois. He will also be very missed, as our members and staff have known him for many years and are used to seeing him at our Helen G. Nassif YMCA!

Please welcome our newest Helen G. Nassif YMCA leadership!
