Jean Pierre (J.P.) Benlian – I am privileged to live in Boise with my wife of 27 years, Lisa and 3 kids, Alli, Bella, and Ethan where we not only get to enjoy the outdoors but also take part in this welcoming community!  I have been an RU instructor now for 4 years. I have participated in both the Sit-Down as well as the Stand-Up programs.

I was fortunate enough to have been introduced to the program as something for my oldest, Ethan to participate in another winter sport beyond Floor Hockey. Ethan’s first ski lesson was 9 years ago and has been taking lessons with RU ever since.

Serving this program allows me an opportunity to show the gratitude for what this program has done for Ethan and my family.
