Jamie Willett spends his volunteer energy chairing the Buena Park Neighbors (BPN) Planning & New Business Development Committee. Jamie has a passion for filling available store fronts in Buena Park & adjacent areas with businesses that our community wants by injecting the community’s voice into the retail real estate fulfillment process. Jamie’s looking to add committee members who want to help add more walkable retail and services that keep Buena Park spending in Buena Park. He has a running survey to capture the most-requested retail categories that you can find right here. If you haven’t chimed in yet, please do. His committee works to make connections between business owners and local realtors, developers and building owners as a big part of the overall BPN Master Planning efforts.
Jamie and his wife Katie moved to Buena Park more than five years ago from the heart of Lincoln Park. They fell in love with the neighborhood and immediately connected with its potential, lake proximity and vintage buildings. You can find them with their two daughters and dog Rory biking to the beach, chilling at the Peace Garden and climbing every playground.
When Jamie is not lauding the benefits of being a BPN member or business he is Director of Product-Market Strategy for OneMe PBC, a data privacy startup, under the secret identity “James.” He has 18 years of experience in corporate business strategy, branding and digital media innovation. He’s also bullish on the potential of Buena Park and ready to hear from anyone with an idea for filling store fronts. You can reach him at email@example.com.
