James Burch is originally from Grand Rapids, MI. James has worked construction and coached youth sports back in his home state. James answered the call in 2013 to serve alongside Brooklyn residents struggling to recover post-Sandy by volunteering for the grassroots volunteer organization Red Hook Volunteers. Being one of their most qualified and volunteer favorite site supervisors, Resurrection Brooklyn Relief is glad to have him on our team serving in the same capacity. His big smile and constant encouragement make him a joy to work alongside, even if it’s scrubbing nasty mold off two by fours!
James is an avid Michigan State Spartans fan, loves playing basketball, and is currently teaching himself guitar. He can also really sail a disc golf disc if you get a chance to play a round with him.
