“While serving nearly a decade on JARC’s Board of Directors, the majority of my time has been spent fundraising, encouraging young adult involvement, promoting events and monitoring organizational finances,” says Jahnke. “In this new role, my goal is to develop innovative ways to provide value and share new perspectives to help JARC continue forward with their important mission as I spend more time both with the people we serve, as well as our incredible staff.”

Since becoming a member of JARC’s Board of Directors in 2015, Jahnke has remained highly involved with the organization through several engagements. He has served in several officer roles including secretary, treasurer, and most recently president-elect, as well as serving as a chair of the board’s finance committee, the young adult committee, and taking on roles of chairperson and host of various events including young adult bowling, the JARC’s annual fundraiser pre-glow, and more.

He started his career as a real estate attorney at Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP in 2007, becoming a partner in 2012. In 2015, he decided to step away from law and with his business partner founded Bloomfield Hills-based Vault Equity Partners, which acquires single-tenant net lease properties throughout the United States. In 2016, Jahnke was named to Crain’s Detroit 40 Under 40 and DBusiness 30 in Their Thirties.
