Volunteer Spotlight – August 2019

Each month on the BLOG, we feature an interview with one of our incredible volunteers. We have dedicated volunteers who have been with us for more than 20 years and some who have given of their time for less than two months. All are deeply appreciated and deserve a moment in the spotlight!

This month’s Volunteer Spotlight features one of our fantastic front-of-house volunteers: Jack Delpit! You may have seen him behind the SLO REP bar, pouring wine and opening beers.

Volunteer Director, Tasia Trevino-Hill, asked Jack a few questions about volunteering at SLO REP.

TTH: Tell us a bit about yourself! What do you do when you’re not volunteering?

Jack:  In my working life, I have been Director of Sales for various Silicon Valley software companies in the Healthcare Industry. I am now semi-retired and live in Morro Bay with my wife and two King Charles Spaniels, Journey and Bella.
TTH: How long have you been a volunteer at SLO REP?
Jack: Since January 2019.

TTH: What duties have you done while volunteering? (Front door, costumes, sets, etc.) 
Jack: I have volunteered for Bartending, Concessions, and Front Door, depending on where volunteers were needed at each performance.
TTH: What (or who) got you started volunteering at SLO REP?
Jack: I first started to volunteer at SLO Rep due to my lifelong interest in entertainment–my brother was the Founder of the Academy of Science Fiction Films!
TTH: What is your favorite part about volunteering here?
Jack: My experience at SLO REP has been rewarding personally, particularly when bartending and seeing those happy faces enjoy an outing in the relaxed atmosphere.

TTH: Do you volunteer (or have you volunteer recently) at any other nonprofits?
Jack: In addition to SLO REP, I volunteer in Morro Bay at my local church and also devote time to San Luis Obispo county government and my community.

TTH: Do you have any word of advice for new volunteers or someone thinking about volunteering?
Jack: I recommend volunteering at SLO REP if you want to get involved with your community and have a great time doing it.


Our volunteers are what keep SLO REP running smoothly. From painting sets to setting up the coffee bar, stuffing envelopes to organizing costumes, pouring wine and mixing martinis, the incredible volunteers who give their time to this theatre mean the world to us and to our patrons.
