Christian Opportunity Center (COC) proudly celebrates a remarkable milestone in the career of COC Executive Director Jodi Tukker after 25 years of service to the organization. Jodi’s journey at COC embodies dedication, hard work, and a deep commitment to empowering individuals with disabilities.

Jodi Tukker’s career at COC began over 25 years ago, when she stepped into the role of a COC Direct Support Professional while pursuing her college education. During the past 25 years, she has worked in various administrative positions, including Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/ID) & Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Program Coordinator, HCBS Program Manager, ICF/ID Regional Director, Associate Director, and now, Executive Director. Her dedication to COC’s mission and her genuine care for the individuals supported have been the guiding principles of her tenure.

Reflecting on her 25-year journey at COC, Jodi shared, “In every role I’ve worked in, it’s the people supported that stand out. I’ve seen their joy and excitement while riding rides at amusement parks, listened to them recount the moment-by-moment details of their day, and sat with them as they grieved the loss of a loved one. We are with them during the highs and lows of life, and in all of those moments, I’ve known that what I was doing was meaningful and that I was making a difference.”

When asked about how coming up through the ranks and the diverse experiences Jodi has had have shaped her leadership style, she remarked, “It has given me a respect for the various positions – what is involved in each one and the skills and abilities they require to be done well. This understanding provides good perspective when making leadership decisions – balancing the best interest of employees while keeping the good of the people supported at the center of every decision – they are the heart of the mission of COC.”

Looking ahead, Jodi expressed her excitement for the future. “I’m excited to see what the future holds! I’m thankful to have been blessed with the opportunity to work for such a great organization over the past 25 years and am looking forward to what God has planned for us next!”

The entire COC community celebrates Jodi Tukker’s 25 years of dedication and service and looks forward to the continued impact she will make as Executive Director. Her passion, leadership, and commitment to COC’s mission embody the spirit of service and empowerment.
