John Hess

Chief Technology Officer, CBJ
Boulder, Colo.
Board term ending: January 2016

John Hess lives in Boulder, Colo. with his wife, Seema, and three young children, Olivia, Iain and Simon. John became involved with PHA after his son Iain was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension in October of 2004 at the age of 5.

Leading up to PHA’s recent website redesign, John volunteered his time with PHA’s web team to evaluate and select a vendor for the site overhaul. John also took part in “14 Fourteeners” with daughter Olivia and Iain’s best friend Matt. John and the two eleven-year-olds climbed Colorado’s 14 highest peaks in 14 days to fundraise and spread awareness of PH in Iain’s honor. Watch CBS coverage of the climb
