Happy 90th birthday to our Grandma Jaki – the heart and soul of our company!
Today, we raise our glasses to celebrate a truly remarkable woman, a true inspiration. Your journey through life is a story that inspires us all, and on this special day, we want to share some of your life stories, an insight into the incredible person you are.
Born amid history, you lived through pivotal moments like the bombing of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii – a story you’ve shared with us, reminding us of the strength that can emerge from the most challenging circumstances. You earned a degree in voice performance and imparted your knowledge to students at the university level, but your incredible story didn’t stop there. In 1979, you embraced this new adventure in the timeshare industry, recognizing the potential of a new and upcoming market. You’ve always had an eye for these sorts of things! Your intuition shaped the course of your career, leading to two prestigious awards from the American Resort Development Association, which we are so proud of. Your dedication to excellence and commitment to our community have left an unforgettable mark.
In 2000, you joined forces with your son, our uncle, Kinn, to embark on a new chapter – founding our company. Together, you’ve created a thriving business and a legacy we are honored to continue. Twenty-three years later, your gift of devotion and expertise persists.
As we celebrate your 90th birthday, we want you to know that your presence fills our hearts with joy and inspiration daily. Your unwavering spirit, determination to embrace change, and dedication to excellence continue to guide us.
May this milestone birthday be just one of many more beautiful chapters in your incredible journey. Here’s to you, our co-founder, mentor, and beloved Grandma Jaki. Happy 90th birthday! 🎉🎂🥂
