The Board of Directors of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta has selected Jared Powers as the agency’s next CEO effective March 1. Powers is currently serving as the agency’s Chief Program Officer, overseeing more than $17 million in programming revenue. Powers has been instrumental in growing the agency’s programming offering, enhancing the quality of programs and improving customer service. 

Powers joined the MJCCA in 2005 as Director of Sports and Camping at its Shirley Blumenthal Park location, rising to Senior Program Director and then relocating in 2010 to the MJCCA Zaban Park campus to serve as Chief Program Officer and a member of the senior management team. Under his leadership, the MJCCA greatly expanded its MJCCA Day Camps offering to become the largest JCC day camp in the country, enhanced and grew numerous program areas, and created strategic partnerships with organizations such as the Atlanta Hawks. 

“It has been an honor to be an integral part of the growth and development of this dynamic agency for the past 11 years,” said Powers. “The MJCCA has always been an important part of my life, and I couldn’t be more excited for this opportunity to lead this transformative agency that is so essential to the Atlanta community.” 

Powers resides in Dunwoody with his wife and two sons who graduated from the MJCCA’s The Weinstein School preschool, attend the MJCCA’s Club J after-school program, participate in MJCCA youth sports, and attend MJCCA Day Camps and Camp Barney Medintz.


Longtime Dunwoody resident Lisa M. Reisman, MSN, CNP is pleased to announce her new company Complete Care At Home is now operating across Greater Atlanta, serving clients with simple to complex needs in the comfort of their own homes or facilities.

Previously the owner and operator of the Dunwoody and Sandy Springs franchise of CareMinders Home Care, Reisman brings ten year’s worth of industry experience in the home care setting, and 30 years as a nurse and nurse practitioner herself, to the new company. Beginning Wednesday, Feb. 24, Complete Care At Home has the ability to reach across a 15-county region.

Every Complete Care At Home caregiver is a fully-vetted employee, screened beyond industry standards and completely trained to provide comfortable, person-centered non-medical and medical home care services. The new company brings most of its 150 care providers to the new entity, many of whom have been with Reisman for many years. It’s also one of the few home care providers with a nurse practitioner and two registered nurses full time.
