Whitaker Named to Angelic Health Foundation Board

Jeff Whitaker of Egg Harbor Township has been named to the Board of the Angelic Health Foundation. For over 30 years he has effectively used the mediums of radio, television, video, the stage, and written word to move, motivate and connect others. Whitaker’s communications career has spanned from television news to radio talk show host; columnist to video producer and even into the college classroom. He spent many years covering the news in South Jersey serving as News Director and Anchor for NBC40. Now, as a certified speaker, trainer and coach with Maxwell Leadership, Jeff concentrates much of his time facilitating workshops and seminars as well as consulting individuals and businesses on finding their voice; improving personal and corporate communication along with media relation skills. He is a firm believer that if you can find your unique voice, you can change your world.

Whitaker is no stranger to Angelic Health. He has called on Angelic Health more than once to walk alongside his family in palliative and hospice care.

“I can’t say enough about the caring staff at Angelic Health,” said Whitaker, “When I was asked to serve on the board, I knew right away of the integrity of the Angelic team. My sister and I experienced it firsthand through the caregivers and nurses who were with us during very difficult times.”

As a board trustee, Whitaker and fellow board members oversee the Angelic Health Foundation, assisting in fundraising and evaluating grant applications. The other members are Vince Papaccio of Ventnor, president of Papaccio Group LLC, serving as board chairman, and (Nor’Easter)Nick Pittman of Sewell, president and chief meteorologist of NorCast Media Group.

The Angelic Health Foundation is a 501c3 tax-exempt charity that provides support to hospice patients in need, final wishes, and grants for innovative palliative and hospice programs. Contributions go toward supporting initiatives such as supplies for the memory care program, special care kits for hospice and palliative patients, and recognition programs for veterans. Community and professional education programs are also supported by donations. Donations are tax-deductible and can be made in honor or memory of a loved one, as a special way to thank Angelic staff members for their care, or as an acknowledgment.
