The VelDyke Vision

VelDyke Realty, a family business, was established in 1962 by Jean Veldwyk (FHS 1948). Jean remained in the Franklin community after her graduation, becoming a community leader. She opened a real estate and insurance office on Rainier Avenue, and later a property management company. An accomplished businesswoman, Jean was the cofounder and president of Sound Savings and Loan Association, and national president of the National Association of Insurance Women. Jean was the first woman president of the Rainier Chamber of Commerce and the Seattle-King County Board of Realtors. She served as chair of the Seattle Center Advisory Committee and of the Senior Services of Seattle-King County. She was the cofounder and chair of the Southeast Seattle Crime Prevention Council and, in that capacity, received a 1990 award from the president of the United States for innovation and success in reducing crime. What does this mean? VelDyke gives back. Cheryl continues to honor the VelDyke vision with her integrity, service and charitable donations to the community creating a legacy that will be remembered for years to come.
