Restaurant Owner - Mom's, Madison Bear Garden


Darien, who is originally from Littleton, Colorado and Jack from Honolulu, Hawaii, made the decision twenty-five years ago to locate to Chico and knew the connection to this community would last a lifetime.  The years to follow were focused on strengthening our businesses in Chico/Sacramento and supporting many worthy organizations.  Giving back to our community and working to bring positive change is an ongoing and vital part of our daily lives. 

It is my pleasure to serve as an active member of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, the Beta Chapter of Omega Nu and participating in my final year on the Board of Directors for Chico Country Day School.  Jack’s contributions include; The Rotary Club of Chico, serving on the Executive Board for Enloe Hospital and the Salvation Army,  along with various other charitable organizations.

On October 15, 2004, we were blessed with two beautiful, special twin daughters named Kalani and Keely. Our lives were forever changed from that day forward! Our daughters serve as our inspiration to find emotional and financial support for others in their pursuit to have a child.  We understand the challenges and heart breaking disappointment that can consume and take over your life when trying to conceive.  But, we were fortunate to have had the support of family and friends to be with us on our journey and now we have the opportunity to help others.
