Jack Nosco is all about giving back to his community. As a firefighter, he has dedicated himself not only personally, but also professionally to helping others. Jack is passionate about educating and being involved with youth in our community, as demonstrated by the numerous sports teams he has coached over the years. Jack was devastated when his little brother, Mike Nosco, tragically died in a car accident on November 3, 2004. Every year on November 3rd, Jack struggled miserably through that day. In 2008, he decided to turn that day around and make it a day to honor and celebrate Mike’s life, and do it in a way that gives to those in need in our community. Jack’s zest for life and his high, positive energy is contagious; bringing his love for his brother and his passion for cycling together, Jack has turned what started as a few friends going for a grueling bicycle ride, to mark a miserable day, into an annual event with more than 500 participants that helps people in our community. Family and community are top priorities for Jack, so it’s no surprise that Jack’s wife, Teri, and their three children have all worked endless hours in multiple capacities year after year on the Mike Nosco Memorial Bicycle Ride. The ride is an amazing tribute to Jack’s brother and a powerful community event that helps to support and inspires individuals and families who are battling grievous illnesses.

Ramona Vanderwyck has a passion for helping others, she has volunteered for more than a decade to help in the fight against cancer. Ramona works at Amgen, and has for the past 26 years. She graduated from California Lutheran University with a BS in Business Management and will earn her MBA in 2017, with a professional track on Non Profit Social Enterprise. Mike Nosco and Ramona worked together at Amgen for ten years; in addition to working together they became great friends and volunteered together for six years as team captains for Amgen’s Relay for Life team for the American Cancer Society. After Mike’s tragic death, Ramona continued to work on Relay for Life for three more years, and even became Chairperson for the event and dedicated her opening speech to Mike. It was during that speech that Ramona realized that she wanted to be responsible for an event that gives back to our local community and she wanted to do it in honor of her longtime friend and co-worker, Mike Nosco. Ramona approached Jack, Mike’s brother, with the idea and the Michael P. Nosco Foundation, Inc. was born, using the annual Mike Nosco Memorial Bicycle Ride as the foundation’s primary fundraiser. Ramona and Jack have worked together tirelessly since 2008 to make the Mike Nosco Memorial Bicycle Ride the awesome success that it is today.
