Jan joined PUU in 2019. He joined the UU church after discovering the LGBTQ+ and BLM flags and banners flying in front of the Arlington Street Church in Boston. 2016-2020 were years that Jan realized that coming to church to pray is empty faith when social injustices are happening all around. He found PUU online and came for 4 services and has since stayed. He believes in social justice, climate change, animal rights, and follows a plant-based diet. He holds several Master of Science degrees in Public Health, Nursing, and Quality Assurance. He lives with his husband Matthew, and their 3 lap babies: Lulu, Maggie, and Bailey. He is very thankful to PUU for transforming his understanding about race and social justice.
