Jan was named Executive Director of MUFON on August 1, 2013. He is a graduate of the UCLA School of Engineering and spent 37 years with IBM in sales and marketing as an executive before retiring to become the Executive Director of MUFON. His career includes being IBM Branch manager in Orange County, CA. IBM Services Executive in Vancouver, Canada, and IBM Senior Project Executive for the Boeing, Disney, and Technicolor accounts over the last 14 years of his career managing large outsourcing contracts for IBM.
Jan's interest in UFOs began at the age of 8 when he read an article on Donald Keyhole and NICAP in Argosy magazine. Based on this and other research he and his brother did over the next two years, they made the decision to build a flying saucer believing that electromagnetic propulsion was the key to how these craft were able to travel such great distances. While in the process of doing this, they were visited by a real UFO, no more than thirty feet from them, with no visible means of propulsion other than making a humming noise before shooting off over the horizon. As a result of this experience, Jan pursued finding the answer to the technology these craft display believing that a breakthrough would revolutionize transportation and energy on our planet. As part of his drive to find the answer, Jan attended UCLA School of Engineering and received his B.S. in Nuclear Engineering. After college, he was hired by IBM, thinking that only a company of IBM's stature and funding of basic research could solve this problem. 50 years later, Jan like many others, is still looking for the answer.
Jan began attending MUFON meetings in 1991. In 1995 he was appointed as State Section Director MUFON Orange County, CA. After a successful MUFON Symposium in Irvine, CA in 2001 he was elected to the MUFON Business Board. As a member of the Board Jan was instrumental in leading MUFON's Strategic Planning which resulted in the current mission statement and goals of the organization, as well as creating the Case Management System (CMS) used for UFO reporting, tracking, and investigative follow-up. Jan currently resides in Newport Beach, California, with his wife, Annette, and their two children.
