A longtime family friend of the Kowalski’s, Michele Orzechowski, is the Secretary and Treasurer for the CMAK Sandy Hook Memorial Foundation. As a married mother of two, and known to Chase as “auntie,” Michele is known for her commitment of strong family values and creating events that incorporate a sense of safe, active, honest, and playful togetherness.
Michele currently holds a full time position as General Manager of Tile America in New Haven, Connecticut. During her 27 years there, she has moved through the ranks in various positions including sales, warehousing, inventory, purchasing,
accounting, human resources and industry information technology. This background has given her the ability to adapt to many changing situations and refocus with both a business aspect as well as a personal, human response. Her loyalty is immense.
During her free time throughout the year, you can find her planning and cooking for many family gatherings, or attending activities involving her children and their many interests. Michele resides in Connecticut with her husband, Rob, daughter, Jess, son, John and two humorous beagles. She hopes her involvement with the Foundation will bring genuine PEACE, LOVE, LIGHT and INSPIRATION to all she comes in contact with. She is full of gratitude to play a small role in it’s development and future endeavors as we TRIUMPH OVER TRAGEDY and make a difference in many outstanding communities.
