Cool Davis is happy to announce the addition of two new board members in our 10th anniversary year.

Johannes Troost

Johannes Troost is retired from a career in Education and Human Services. His work included both policy development and program design, implementation, and evaluation. He received a B.A. in Political Science and an M.Ed from the University of Vermont.

He has lived in Davis since 1986 and is a life-long hiker and backpacker. He enjoys the people, opportunities, resources, and diverse ecosystems the region provides for continued learning. While being a data driven person, he believes the things that matter the most often cannot be measured.

Jason Bone

Jason Bone works as a consultant helping organizations use geospatial technology to collect, organize, and share information with their user base. He enjoys the challenge of building a better workflow and/or tool(s) to simplify, visualize, and liberate information so that others can make better informed decisions. Jason has a B.S in Geology from UC Riverside and an MBA from UC Davis.

Jason is a Northern California native and has lived in Davis since 2011. He was drawn to Davis by its amazing greenbelts, college town feel, and its family oriented community. He has two children and enjoys camping, hiking, soccer and coaching his kids in their many sports.

Cool Davis welcomes these new board members with open arms!
