Joe O’Kane was introduced to Let’s Go Fishing in 2016. He immediately volunteered to help further the LGF mission. In his professional life he works for LeadingAge MN, an association of senior care providers, and advises members in regards to employee benefits and insurance related issues.
Joe serves as an LGF Board Member and is involved in fundraising efforts. He is passionate about LGF, and serving seniors, veterans, youth and the disabled. He has seen firsthand the amazing healing effects of spending time on the water. Mr. O’Kane commonly says “Few things in my life have grabbed hold of my heart like Let’s Go Fishing. There is no other organization that serves the rapidly growing senior population the way LGF does. It is truly an amazing organization and successful mission Mr. Holm founded. The stories of how LGF has impacted the lives of approximately 150,000 participants and thousands of volunteers is enough to melt even the hardest heart.” Joe is a devoted Christian and takes his faith seriously, he believes that LGF is a true example of the second great commandment to “love your neighbor” Matthew 22:36.
Joe and his wife Laurie have been married 26 years, they have three college aged children and live in Woodbury, MN. Joe loves the outdoors, especially spending time fishing with friends and family.
