Jacob Winge serves as the director of business development for Collier County at Comfort Keepers, an in-home senior care services company. As a fourth-generation Neapolitan, he’s also focused on his community.

“I am a Leadership Collier Alumni, and I also serve as president of the East Naples Civic Association and Kiwanis of East Naples,” he says. “I’m also an advisory board member of the Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce and past president of the Friends of the Collier County Museums.”

Winge previously served on three county advisory boards and, as a student at Florida SouthWestern State College, served as president of the Florida College System Student Government Association. His goal is to be a strong advocate for seniors and a bold leader in the area’s conservation efforts, planning, and arts and culture.

What are your future aspirations?

Eventually running for office again and to continue growing my career in the senior care industry. To continue serving our community by helping small businesses and nonprofits and working with government partners on local advisory boards, state government and legislature. And I’d like to increase economic development, improve development and long-term plans, and prioritize conservation and outdoor recreation in East Naples and other outlying communities.
