College Development Director Retiring

Please join us in congratulating Jesse Colvin, Director of Development in the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy (COSSPP), who is retiring at the end of July 2016 after 19 years of service to the FSU Foundation, the last 10 of which were in COSSPP. Upon Jesse’s retirement, current Assistant Director of Development Cindy Michelson will be promoted to Jesse’s senior development officer position; a search will commence immediately to fill the junior development position in the college.

During Jesse’s tenure at COSSPP, the college’s overall fundraising efforts have improved significantly through consistent and steady growth, both in dollars and donors, with FY2016 results setting new records for the college in both areas. Additionally, throughout the years, Jesse has remained a staunch advocate for donors to ensure that their philanthropic wishes were fulfilled.

We thank Jesse for his dedication and hard work and we extend congratulations to Cindy on her upcoming promotion. We will have an opportunity to wish Jesse a fond farewell at an event later this year.
