Wellbeing and Education Officer
Josh has been with the Ipswich Jets since 2015 and initially starting in a volunteer role as the club chaplain. A position birthed from an unfortunate tragedy and forth sight of then CEO Wayne Wendt, which has now grown into the paid position of Wellbeing and Education Officer. Still with the same heart for looking after the players and their families, the role has been formalised with the support of the NRL to the paid position that it is today. Looking after the players wellbeing off the field is of the upmost importance for the Jets. Having our players leave our club, not just as great footy players but all round great men is our passion.
