Patin joins Cerro Coso Foundation Board
October 19, 2011
"Busy people know how to get things done," and Jason Patin is an example of one very busy man. Devoted to his faith, wife, family, community, and now Cerro Coso Community College, Jason Patin, has been sworn in as a Director on the Cerro Coso Community College Foundation Board.
A local real estate professional and notary public, Patin also serves as a City Council Member. Jason spent 13 years working in the film industry in Los Angeles. Eventually he worked his way up to an editor for Sony Pictures (Columbia Pictures) and also produced a feature film.
In 2003, he returned to Ridgecrest to raise his children in a safe, friendly environment. Jason quickly immersed himself in the local community where he has been active in youth sports as both a coach and board member; serving on both the Indian Wells Valley (I.W.V.) youth football and baseball Board of Directors. In 2008, Jason was appointed to the office of Planning Commissioner by the City Council which proved to be a valuable experience, and allowed him to better understand the inner workings of city government.
He currently serves on the Ridgecrest Redevelopment Agency Board, the Quality of Life/Parks and Recreation committee, he is the chairman of the Community/Economic Development committee, is a board member of the east Kern County teen court, the youth advisory board, the Old Town Action Plan committee, the League of California Cities, and the city of Ridgecrest/I.W.V. water district inner agency committee, and is a board member on the Career Technical Education Advisory Board for Sierra Sands Unified School District.
Jason and his wife, Deidre, have three children: Christian, Bradley, and Elise, and are anxiously awaiting the birth of their fourth child. They are active parishioners of St. Ann's Catholic Church, and Jason is also a member of the Knights of Columbus. His passion and drive within the community is deep seeded as he sees our community as an investment in the future of all local children.
"Jason takes serving the community in which he lives very seriously," stated CCCC Foundation President, Cheryl Gates. "His enthusiasm and devotion to education and the community will assist the Foundation in its role to support success and excellence for students, faculty, and staff at Cerro Coso Community College."
