Ronald Janowczyk

Special Strong Champions Foundation Board Member

Ron’s (RJ, Ronnie) background may be as an expert in the wine business, but God knew Ron had other gifts to share. Ron felt called out of retirement to do this work God had planned by owning a Special Strong franchise, and now as a board member for Special Strong Champions Foundation. This aligns with causes that Ron cares deeply about: inclusivity, civility and kindness.

Ron is the first member of his family to graduate from college, with dual degrees from the University of Notre Dame. Obviously one of his favorite teams is the Fighting Irish, along with being a fan of the Chicago Bears. Ron is well-traveled and has lived in six states. He is married to his wife Gloria, and together they have three children, Lauren 36, Joe 33 and Jake 26. When Ron is not running his companies or serving, he may be found out with his favorite hobby, riding his motorcycle.

Ron’s two favorite bible verses are Isaiah 41:10 and Matthew 7:13.
