L. John Jeselnik named to Presbyterian College Board of Trustees

Presbyterian College is pleased to announce that John Jeselnik of North Augusta, S.C. has been elected to serve on the College’s Board of Trustees.

Jeselnik is a 1973 graduate of Presbyterian College where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration. While at PC, he was a member of the Blue Hose football and track teams. He was also a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity.  He currently serves on the Alumni Association Board, and recently completed a two-year term as president of the Alumni Association.

He is currently the principal of EZ Way Farm, managing timber assets and crop rental. Jeselnik is also engaged in consulting with John Deere farm equipment dealers, primarily in the acquisition and integration of new dealership locations.

“I am honored at the invitation to serve on the Board of Trustees of Presbyterian College,” Jeselnik said. “PC President Bob Staton asked me just last week why I supported the college. My response: Aside from the quality education, athletic opportunities, lifelong friends and unique college experience, the short answer is that it feels like family. My wife Alison, daughter Lane and various other members of our family have attended. PC is part of who we are.”

Jeselnik’s work in farm management and consulting comes as a result of growing up on a small family farm in east Georgia and a 34-year career in management with John Deere Company, a division of Deer and Company of Moline, Ill. With John Deere, Jeselnik’s responsibilities within the eight-state Southeastern division included developing a dealer organization with broad management and sales abilities and financial strength to continue to grow, train, and retain the best employees in the industry.

Jeselnik is a member of Grace United Methodist Church and the Seekers Sunday School Class. He has recently completed a three-year term on the church Stewardship Committee.  He is also a regular contributor and participant with the University Hospital Foundation in fundraising activities to support cancer treatment for uninsured and underinsured patients.
