Street Roots vendor, volunteer and supporter Ted Jack is headed north to take up fishing in Alaska after many years with the organization. We wish him well in his travels and hope to see him this way again soon. Ted’s involvement with the vendor program began with simply selling the paper, but he expanded his role as a front desk volunteer, cook and overall mentor for the many vendors who pass through our office each year.
“To all the people who have supported me through the past years, I thank you,” Ted says. “I have sold Street Roots for five years and now it’s time for me to go. I will truly miss my corner on Second and Taylor. You people that support us at Street Roots truly are needed and appreciated. I’m moving out of state to begin a new chapter in my life. This last one was great. Thank you all.”
