Community Seniors To Meet FBI?Agent
The Community Senior Fellowship of the Jamestown area will gather on Tuesday at 2 p.m. in the First Lutheran Church parlors. Attendees will meet two individuals who have served the public in assorted assignments over many years. The Rev. Laverne Terrill, semi-retired, has pastored various congregations in the Jamestown area. Among them, throughout the years, have been the Fentonville and Buffalo Street United Methodist churches and the Living Faith Church. He and his wife, Gloria, live in the hamlet of Kennedy where he serves as the Kennedy Volunteer Fire Department chaplain. Terrill has maintained an active membership in this fire department for 45 years. He will lead the devotional period for this meeting.
The other individual offering much time to the community in a variety of ways is FBI Special Agent Brent Isaacson, a Jamestown native and high school graduate. Obtaining a diversified education and training brought him to the University of Rochester for mechanical engineering followed by a commission as a United States Naval officer serving in the Navy’s Nuclear Propulsion Program. He has held various positions of responsibility within research programs at national laboratories, warships and the Westinghouse Science and Technology Center.
Agent Isaacson’s FBI career began in 1996 with training in Quantico, Va., followed by an assignment in Washington, D.C. He has worked out of the Jamestown office since his transfer in 1999. Included in his many investigations are cases involving criminal and national security matters, homicides, terrorism, child sexual exploitations and white collar crimes, among others. He has served as a SWAT Team member on Buffalo and is certified to train fellow agents in firearms and tactical environments.
Virginia Guinnane, refreshment committee chairman, will be assisted by Carolyn Boehler, Alberta Johnson, George and Violet Johnson, Anita McDonald, Shirley Schauers and James Walrod.
Discussion will be on the Dec. 3 meeting at noon.
