Oregon Episcopal School is pleased to announce that C. J. Remmo will join the OES community as Director of Campus Operations beginning in July 2024. C. J. will be filling Jon von Behren’s role as longtime Director of Facilities once Jon retires later this summer.

C. J. currently serves as the Deputy Chief Operating Officer at The Potomac School in the Washington, D.C. area where he is responsible for Security, Facilities, Transportation, Auxiliary Programs, and Dining Services. During his time at Potomac, C. J. also served as Assistant Director of Athletics at Potomac. He is wrapping up his sixth year of coaching football and wrestling as well.

C.

C. J. has also worked as a Director of Operations at a property management firm, Assistant Campus Director & International Student Advisor at Columbia College, and as a Program Support & Public Outreach Specialist for the Office of Education & Health for USAID, Egypt.

"In every step of the hiring process and during my visit to the campus, I was struck by the distinctiveness of OES. The warmth and dedication of the faculty, staff, and board members, combined with the campus's breathtaking beauty and architectural charm, left an indelible impression on me. I am thrilled to become a part of the OES community and eager to contribute to its continued success."

Head of School Michael Spencer is thrilled to welcome C. J. to the school's administrative team. "Carrying on the good work of Jon von Behren and his 49 year tenure at OES is a daunting task. In our search process to identify his successor, C. J. distinguished himself through the breadth of his experience and the depth of his care and commitment to centering the student experience in the work of campus operations. I look forward to this partnership as we imagine and bring to fruition the future of OES."
