— John Quinlan, of Wantage, has recently been appointed as the foundation director of Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice, according to a foundation news release.

He will work with both the Memorial and Charitable Foundations of the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice to further the cause of hospice in the community, according to the release.

The Charitable Foundation is the recipient of the fundraising activities that enables the hospice to be able to care for patients and their families no matter their ability to pay, the release states. It also assists in supporting the new Karen Ann Quinlan Home for Hospice to be open in 2014. The Memorial Foundation oversees the hospice operations.

“I am excited to explore this next phase in my lifelong commitment to the hospice movement," Quinlan said. "The challenges of succeeding as a not-for-profit alongside the for-profit organizations requires extensive community support.”


Quinlan has a varied background in sales and sales management, most notably with Muralo Company and Akso/Nobel/Sikkens in New Jersey and Eastern Penn. He is also a New Jersey State Registered Builder since 1984.

He studied at Cochise County College in Douglas, Ariz., and at the University of Arizona in Tucson majoring in English and Spanish.

Quinlan was a co-founder of the Karen Ann Quinlan Memorial Foundation in 1977, and a co-founder of the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice, which opened in 1980. He has served on both the Hospice Memorial Board and the Foundation’s Charitable Board as a member and a liaison between the two boards and also as chairperson for their Strategic Planning, and as a member on the Personnel, Marketing, and Finance Committees.

“We welcome John in this new opportunity to cultivate a coalition of community members and businesses that will bring the Home for Hospice to fruition, and enlisting their support in partnering with the hospice to be certain all who need it, will have the benefit of this unique facility,” Executive Director Cecelia Clayton said.

Quinlan will be reporting to the Newton Administrative Office of the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice, 99 Sparta Ave, Newton, NJ 07860, and can be reached at 973-383-0115 or at johnquinlan@karenannquinlanhospice.org.
