Listen along to the following interviews as part of our June Big Table Sunday line up:
Mark Reinertson (interviewed by John Rice)
Jessy D’Eliso (interviewed by Margaret Fairchild)
Joe and Kaitlyn Tepe (interviewed by Dusty Johnson)
A true Eugene native, Mark actually still lives in the house where he was born and raised. Mark is a life-long learner with a strong work ethic, only surpassed by his desire to help people in need. He worked many years delivering oxygen and medical equipment to people with whom he became very close. He more recently opened a coffee/espresso/pastry cart at the Goshen exit off I-5. Mark is married to Rose and they have three adult children.
Jessy was raised most of her life in Portland Oregon. She grew up playing softball which led her to Humboldt to play in college. After moving to Eugene in 2013 she went through the baking program at LCC and is now working at The Market of Choice. Jessy’s mother (Debbie Shinkle) and brother (Pastor Mike D’Eliso) also attend CitySalt.
