Board of Directors

 

Webb Weiman/Founder

Webb graduated from California State University Northridge in 1985 with a degree in Radio-TV-Film. He worked as the Head of Post Production for a company called “Magical Elves”, and oversaw such Emmy award winning shows as Project Greenlight, Project Runway and Top Chef. Webb has also been involved with charitable organizations that raise money for cancer research, Parkinsons and heart disease. Unfortunately, Webb lost his mother, brother and father to these illnesses, but Jump! has been the perfect vehicle to help fill that void. “You grow up quickly when you encounter health challenges in your family”, but it’s that strength and determination that pushed Webb to start Jump! “It feels like I spent a lot of years taking care of people” and now pushing 50, Webb wants to help seniors and tell great stories, one Jump! at a time.
