A growing need: Volunteer hospice expands, adds director

PORT ANGELES — Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County has hired an executive director — after years of not having one — and is now settling into a building in Port Angeles amid unprecedented growth of the organization.

The Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County (VHOCC) board selected JooRi Jun, a naturopathic physician from Port Townsend, to lead the organization and Monday was her first day on the job.

“I feel really aligned with Rose Crumb’s founding vision and mission for the organization: to provide compassionate care for the terminally ill, their families and caregivers,” Jun said.

“I will always stay aligned and close with that mission and I know the organization has been doing that well. I hope to make sure we keep doing that.”

Crumb, who died at the age of 92 in December, founded VHOCC in 1978. Since then the organization has helped terminally ill Clallam County residents at no cost to them, their families or the government.
