Meet the Team
KELLY KOLANDER | Founder & President
In his role as founder and president of TLC for Kids Sports, Kelly Kolander draws from a wealth of experience, including his current position as President & CEO of O.C. Jones & Sons, Inc. His lifelong career in the Construction & Engineering Industry provided him with a seasoned outlook on how to build communities from the ground up. Kelly has nurtured and maintained a special heritage culled through generations of true construction professionals.
In 2009, during a tough economy, the O.C. Jones Team was determined to find a way to help local Bay Area youth and provide a service with long lasting community impact. That same year, Kelly formed a partnership between O.C. Jones & Sons, a heavy construction contractor and leading builder of athletic fields, and KNBR 680AM Radio whereby the TLC for Kids Sports program was born.
Kelly participates in and encourages volunteering, donating time, talent and resources to many parks and community facilities. His contagious spirit of goodwill and enthusiasm encourages his fellow workers and peers to willingly support similar initiatives.
Kelly holds a BS in Heavy Civil Construction from CSU Fresno.
