Foundation President of JROC
Mr. Lynott started developing the foundation for JROC over a decade ago when he recognized that Portland area law enforcement and military had limited training areas that created a safe and remote, yet accessible location to train in real-world live fire and simulated fire scenarios impossible to recreate in an urban environment.
A retired infantry officer in the Oregon Army National Guard, Mr. Lynott has been a civic-minded businessman from the start of his career. In 2003, amid concerns about US Soldiers and Marines having adequate body armor in Iraq, Mr. Lynott donated the needed body armor to help his buddies deploying overseas. Mr. Lynott is the CEO and Founder of TeleSmart, and the CEO of Always Faithful Construction and United Construction Management. TeleSmart is a telecom software company specializing in hosted connectivity within the North American Numbering Plan. Always Faithful Construction is a new home builder and remodeler in the Portland Metro area. Mr. Lynott graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in planning, public
policy and management.
