Another Pawsitive Planning Lunch & Learn in the Books!

On Tuesday, February 25, JHS held our first Pawsitive Planning Lunch and Learn event of 2020. This free event, sponsored by Cypress Trust Company, was open to anyone interested in learning about estate planning, creating a will and appointing beneficiaries, and making plans for pets in case something unexpected happens.

Several local professionals participated in the Pawsitive Planning Lunch and Learn, including Beverly Flanagan, Senior VP and Market Executive from Cypress Trust Company. Cypress Trust Company has been an independent, Florida-based company since 1996. They forge honest and open relationships while creating customized investment strategies, serve as a corporate trustee, personal representative or agent during estate settlement, and as an administrative trustee for clients already committed to an investment plan.

Douglas A. Oberdorfer, Esquire, JHS CEO Denise Deisler, and JHS Board of Directors Vice President Lisé Everly also spoke and answered questions from attendees.

If you would like more information on estate planning with the Jacksonville Humane Society or would like to be placed on the list for future events, please email Theresa Scordo at or call 904.493.4606.
