Jamie Hutchison

Jamie Hutchison became a volunteer with the American Lung Association after losing her mother, Diane Hutchison, to lung disease. She is very effective in recruiting other volunteers and raising funds by sharing her personal story. Jamie works for the Principal Insurance Company in Des Moines, Iowa, which hosted the American Lung Association’s Stair Climb for several years.

Jamie recruits teams for both the Lung Walk and Stair Climb and also participates in both events. As a working single mom, Jamie is extremely busy but always finds time to promote the work of the American Lung Association to business associates, friends and other colleagues.

According to Karen Shattuck, Special Events Manager with the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest, “Jamie is a wonderful person who has turned her personal loss into helping others through the ALA mission. She is an awesome volunteer and a blessing to our organization.”
