Christopher Page is the CEO and Co-Founder of Army Week Association. Chris has been a longtime advocate for veterans’ issues in the greater New York City community, in various roles which would later lead to board memberships and leadership positions with local veteran non-profit organizations. These non-profits’ specific foci ranged from ending veteran homelessness to PTSD awareness, from suicide prevention to recognizing the service of our veterans from past wars. Chris' inspiration for Army Week Association was the evolution of his years of service in the veterans’ community and to fill a void by bringing specific attention to the Army, Army veterans, and their accomplishments in the community, while simultaneously bringing together supporters of all the branches of service.
Chris’ service in the United States Army has almost reached the two-decade mark. He originally served in the Active component for six years, as an Artilleryman, and was posted at Fort Bragg, NC and in Germany. After his active-duty service ended, Chris went to Seton Hall University and received his Bachelor’s degree. Chris re-enlisted in the United States Army Reserves as a Psychological Operations Non-Commissioned Officer. In his current reservist capacity, Chris serves as a First Sergeant at a Psychological Operations Company, based out of Fort Totten, Queens, NY. In his civilian capacity Chris works as an Information Operations Planner for the United States Army in Europe.
Jen Wilson was born and raised in Louisiana, the product of a National Guard town and the proud granddaughter of a D-Day & Battle of the Bulge survivor. Like many Americans, Jen's worldview shifted dramatically after September 11, 2001. While sitting in her dorm room at LSU on that fateful day, even though she'd never been to New York and knew no one there, she made the decision to move to NYC. She quickly earned a position at NBC's corporate fitness facility as their Senior Fitness Specialist. While training and rehabilitating their employees and their on-air talent, she also began concurrently learning the art and logistics of television production. Arguably, her favorite production experience came while traveling the nation and the world with Al Roker and his show, "Wake Up with Al", affording her the opportunity to be on the Vancouver and London Olympics production teams. She went on to be a freelance producer for NBC News, MSNBC, The Weather Channel, The TODAY Show, NBCSN, CBS, CBS Sports, ITN Productions, Keystone Productions, The Triumph Games, and SNY.
It was her grandfather’s legacy that instilled in her an appreciation for service members and their sacrifices. Then came 9/11. And it was the men and women she and her brother grew up with that went to Iraq and Afghanistan. They reignited the fire in her to serve those who answered our Nation’s call to arms. She was a co-founder of the NBC Veterans Network at 30 Rock during her tenure at NBC, and it was in that role that she met Chris Page. Soon thereafter, together, they founded Army Week Association.
As the Army Week Association Chief Operating Officer, she maintains close working relationships with local, state, federal, international governments, and military contacts to ensure an effective and efficient bridge of the allied civil-military divide. It is in this role that Jen has been working tirelessly for months on the evacuations of Americans and our allies out of Afghanistan from her living room in Manhattan. She has also been to Ukraine numerous times since March delivering TCCC supplies to 3 pediatric trauma hospitals, the Ukrainian Army Medic Corps, and the Ukraine Foreign Legion. To date, she and Army Week Association have delivered over $500,000 worth of supplies, equipment, and training to Ukraine and our Allies.
She is an accomplished producer, a published author, a successful entrepreneur, and an American Patriot.
