Park district veteran Campbell to succeed David Chrisman as head of maintenance operations

Dave Chrisman to retire May 30 after 35 years with district


by: TUALATIN HILLS PARK AND RECREATION DISTRICT - Jon Campbell, a 25-year veteran of the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District, has been promoted to superintendent of Maintenance Operations. Jon Campbell, a 25-year veteran of the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District, has been promoted to superintendent of Maintenance Operations, based at the Fanno Creek Service Center near downtown Beaverton.

Campbell succeeds Dave Chrisman, who will retire on May 30 after 35 years with the district. Chrisman has served as superintendent of Maintenance since August 1991.

A Beaverton resident who joined the district in 1989, Campbell has spent his entire park district career in maintenance in a variety of positions, including capital project management and support supervisor. In his new role, he will oversee maintenance of all athletic facilities, buildings, pools, parks, and vehicles. The department is the district's largest, employing about 130 full-time-equivalent employees and accounting for more than a quarter of the district’s annual budget.

Campbell joined the park district as a part-time seasonal employee in Athletic Facilities Maintenance. He worked his way up through Athletic Facilities Maintenance and was named coordinator of the group in June 2001, a position he held for nine years. He was promoted to capital project management and support supervisor for all maintenance groups in July 2010.

Campbell said his primary goal initially is to maintain the high quality standards Chrisman set for the department. He and his supervisors have already begun visiting park district sites to see them first-hand and talk to employees.

“I’m proud of what our maintenance team is doing and want to let them know that,” he said. “I feel very fortunate for this opportunity. I also know I have some big shoes to fill.”
