Wayne Lobley~Director of Development

Lobley’s responsibilities will include raising funds for its annual programs and services as well as the Jesup 2020 Campaign to preserve the Jesup Memorial Library, construct a new addition that will serve the community and make the library accessible to all. A native Mainer, Lobley has enjoyed visiting Bar Harbor throughout his life and even when working as a fundraiser in other parts of the country would come back to Maine and Bar Harbor (usually in the off-season) to enjoy the area!

Many years ago, while in college, Lobley even worked as part of the wait staff at the Jordan Pond House – so the Island, Bar Harbor, and now the Jesup are very close to his heart! “I love the history and character of the Jesup” says Lobley, “and there are so many interesting nooks and crannies, alcoves fascinating woodwork and of course books to explore!”
