Past Board Chair
Jamie Arnold moved from Western New York to Evergreen with his family in 2005 to serve as the first full-time rabbi of Congregation Beth Evergreen (CBE). During his tenure at CBE, the congregation nearly doubled in size, and has become a hub for communal collaborations in town, and in the region. Over the last 16 years, Jamie has come to know and value the noble mission and sacred work of Mt. Evans Hospice in several ways – from CBE members who have volunteered for Mt. Evans Hospice and report their experience, from community leaders and fellow clergy, and in homes at the bedside of dying neighbors, partnering directly with hospice nurses to support families through the processes of death and grief. Such experiences motivate his desire to formalize his involvement on the Hospice Board.
Rabbi Jamie is also a co-founder and past president of AT HOME in Evergreen, an interfaith advocacy group striving to ‘open hearts and minds to the need for affordable housing in Evergreen.’ As an extension of his volunteer work there, he instigated and mobilized creation of the Evergreen Shelter Program (ESP). His leadership on that project helped earn him the Evergreen Chambers’ Leader of the Year Award in 2018.
Jamie is also a volunteer law enforcement chaplain for JeffCo Sheriff’s office, former President of the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado, a writer, and an award-winning educator. Rabbi Arnold is a graduate of Kenyon College (1992) and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (1999), a husband, parent, musician, and avid skier and mountain biker.
Alan is a partner in the law firm of Arnall Golden & Gregory, LLP. He was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and currently resides in Evergreen. Apart from practicing law, Alan has significant health care experience having held clinical, faculty and management positions at major medical centers where he utilized his management skills as well as his background as a registered respiratory therapist and a registered nurse. Alan is a graduate of the Widener University School of Law, Juris Doctorate, and also earned his Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the same university. Alan enjoys hiking, biking, exploring Colorado, traveling and writing a legal column. He has a daughter, Beth who lives in Denver. Alan is a member of the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA), the American Bar Association (ABA), the American Medical Directors Association – The Society for Post-Acute and Long Term Care Medicine (AMDA), and the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA).
Honorary Board Member
Susan served on the Mount Evans Board of Directors for 25 years between 1987 and 2021, including numerous Officer roles and three terms as President in FY1992, FY2000, and FY2008.
Susan was all things to Mount Evans: board member, donor, volunteer, staff member, and lastly, patient. In recognition of all that she gave, the Mount Evans Board of Directors made her an Honorary Board member in 2020.
Susan’s life was defined by sports and charity. While growing up in Ohio, each of her parents encouraged her and her siblings in their own way. “Dad was active, mom was charitable,” she explained. When her mother asked her to help with a Junior League fundraiser she offered to be in the dunk tank. “I sat there for hours and it made an impression on me-that it could be fun to help.”
Susan’s love of skiing led her to choose Colorado State University for college. After graduating, she took a year off and moved to Vail where she worked as a dishwasher and skied. A year of skiing and dishwashing, however, motivated Susan to go to CU Law School. There, she met her husband, Frank.
After moving to Montana, Boulder, and Lakewood, Susan and Frank eventually settled in Evergreen. Susan started her own law practice in Evergreen focused on estate planning and elder law. She shared office space with other local attorneys. In 1987, one of them, Jim Robinson, got her to join the board of Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice. She spent 25 years on the board, including three terms as president, and saw the organization grow as a thriving community asset. Most of her time on the board was spent on fundraising events like the Freedom Run 5K and the Annual Benefit Gala.
Her time on the Mount Evans board led to many other connections such as Leadership Evergreen and Kiwanis, as well as introducing her to organizations she likes to support such as Mountain Area Land Trust (MALT), EAS+Y (Evergreen Alliance for Sustainability and YOU), Center for the Arts Evergreen (CAE) and Bootstraps.
When Susan retired from her legal career in 2013, she joined the staff of Mount Evans. The organization was looking for someone to do planned giving, 15-20 hours a week, and Susan’s experience in estate planning and elder law, made her the perfect fit. Susan retired from her position with Mount Evans in 2018 after nearly five years, but continued to give her expertise, time, and attention again as a board member.
Susan passed away January 29, 2021 from ovarian cancer. Her legacy lives on through everyone she touched with her kindness and generosity.
