Board of Directors
Jean Weiss grew up along the bayous of the Louisiana Gulf Coast where living off the land was truly a way of life. Although her family’s livelihood came from her father working offshore for over 30 years, her connection to Oceana began the day the BP Deepwater Horizon rig blew up and practically destroyed the marine life, fishing industries and way of life in her hometown.
Her business career in training and development brought her to Los Angeles to work for The American Funds, a member of The Capital Group Companies. She and her husband, Tim, have spearheaded many fundraising efforts for the arts, education, healthcare and the fight against domestic violence for over 25 years.
