Board bio: John Chaszar


My name is John Chaszar. Five years ago my wife, Heather, and I realized our lifelong dream and relocated to this wonderful community.

Heather and I currently work for the Oak Harbor school district. Heather teaches kindergarten and I'm a substitute teacher.

I spent my life in the hospitality industry as a leader of hotels and casinos. I have managed budgets in excess of $150 million and teams of over 1000 employees. I currently serve on the Oak Harbor Planning Commission, and I am a board member of Citizens for Better Schools. I have been a volunteer for the Oak Harbor Music Festival since 2014 and believe we can unite a community through music.
