Compassionate Pomona recognizes the Rev. Jan Chase
Compassionate Pomona recently presented Reverend Jan Chase with the Ambassador Nathaniel and Elizabeth Davis 2023 Legacy Award at the Pomona Ebell Museum of History for her outstanding service to the Pomona community, a news release read.
“Rev. Jan played a pivotal role with others in the Pomona Charter and is the driving force behind many of exciting compassion-focused programs and events that support our families and children,” Don Martens, treasurer for the Pomona Valley Democratic Club, wrote in a statement. “The PVDC thought she deserved the recognition because of her work in the community.”
Chase has been a minister at Unity Church of Truth Pomona since January 2003, teaching parishioners practical applications of spiritual principles. At the 2015 Parliament of the World’s Religions summit in Salt Lake City, Chase heard about the Compassionate Cities movement and vowed to create compassionate cities throughout the Pomona Valley.
“There is an excitement in the air in Pomona about collaborating on compassionate actions. There is a pride in our city and our work both separately and together,” Chase said in the news release. “We share a vision of overcoming the challenges our community faces creatively and harmoniously. It is my belief that Pomona will become a fount of wisdom and example for other communities throughout the world.”
