LONG BRANCH — Family & Children’s Service (FCS) of Monmouth County has just appointed three new members to its Board of Directors.
Rabbi Marc Aaron Kline of Monmouth Reform Temple, Carrie Page of Fair Haven and Jack Weakley of Middletown look forward to bringing their experiences to these new positions.
FCS is a nonprofit, social service agency in Monmouth County. Members of the organization are on a mission to provide compassionate care, intervention and education to support people dealing with challenging moments in their lives.
FCS Board Chair Paul Stach could not be happier to have these three individuals join the Board of Directors.
“We are extremely pleased to have Carrie, Jack and Rabbi Kline join our Board of Directors,” he said. “Given their diverse backgrounds in finance, marketing, law and community outreach, they will be valuable resources for the board and management as we continue to address the changing, unmet needs of our community.”
Rabbi Kline has many years of experience under his belt, as he has dedicated much of his career to interfaith community service in national and local organizations. He was ordained in 1995 and spent the first 19 years of his rabbinate in South Carolina and Kentucky. He moved to New Jersey in 2014 to serve as rabbi of Monmouth Reform Temple in Tinton Falls.
Prior to serving as a rabbi, he practiced law in Arkansas and served as Chair of the Lexington-Fayette County Urban Government Human Rights Commission and the Florence, South Carolina Mayor’s Human Relations Commission. He currently works for pluralism and peace process politics in Israel through his role on the Board of Directors of the Association of Reform Zionists of America.
Page formerly worked at Goldman Sachs, where she held positions as chief operation officer (COO) and managing director with the Urban Investment Group. She was also vice president with the company’s Investment Banking Division Healthcare Group.
During her tenure as COO, her group committed $4 billion to underserved neighborhoods through community development, social impact bonds and financing for small businesses.
Page currently serves on the board of Urban Strategies, a nonprofit organization dedicated to redeveloping urban communities; the Educational Alliance, a nonprofit that provides education and social services to New Yorkers; and the Springpoint Senior Living Foundation, a nonprofit providing services to seniors in New Jersey.
Page earned a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from the University of Pennsylvania.
Weakley dedicated 35 years to Johnson & Johnson following a long and distinguished career in sports medicine. He retired and his work in the field has earned him countless awards and recognition, including the creation of the Jack Weakley Service Award by the College Athletic Trainers Association, which recognizes his service to the profession.
Weakley served as a founder, board member and treasurer of the National Athletic Trainer’s Association’s Research and Education Foundation and a board member and treasurer of the Board of Certification of Athletic Training.
He currently serves as a commissioner and treasurer of the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.
