This is a hard one I know both of these people Jess Bousa, and Don Osmond. Could there be two persons of the year? Mr. Osmond for many years has done so much in our town and for the School. Jess is new to the area yet has done an awesome work in the community. God Bless them Both

I would endorse several persons of the year. Don Osman is a man for all seasons and has a strong history with the community for personal giving and leadership. John Narvell has quietly headed the Havre de Grace Recreation Committe for over 35 years and provided recreational programs for thousands each year. Jess Bousa is a newcomer who saw a gap in services and has worked like MacGyver to make things happen with a shoe string and a safety pin. I believe we are blessed to have so many worthy candidates and to be the direct benficiaries of their efforts. Regardless of voting results, they are dedicated citizens who will continue to give freely, sharing their talents and time to enhance our lives and the world with their selfless contributions. Also, there can never be enough kudos for our volunteer firefighters and EMT's and the support auxiliaries, Glorious greetings to all and rest assured that the gifts these people are presenting to you are from the heart. Don't let the praise end with the voting. If you see any of these people, say "Thank you". It means a lot.

Thank you for your kind words. I am flattered. I believe that the award should go to a true volunteer. I love my job and I love being involved, but John Narvell and Don Osman are volunteers who are paid only by your gratitude. These are the desrving souls who should be recognized and they are a major part of my support system. I am not in the same category of either of them in the pure sense of giving. Please continue to support them and their efforts and tell them you appreciate their good deeds.

Jess Bousa, hands down. He is among many stars in Havre de Grace but, in my opinion, his shines brightest! His passion and heart to serve his community, faith in God and love of humanity fuels his tireless drive to powerfully impact people's lives, no strings attached! He has truly made HdG a better community since he has been a part of it... And he has only just begun!!!
