It started in 2006 with a simple cup of coffee and a campus tour offered by former VP for Advancement, Dr. Joe Womack. Joe introduced me to William Jessup University and asked if I might volunteer on the marketing committee and emcee the annual fundraising dinner. I easily agreed—and God began to reveal His sovereign plan for the entire Hogue family.
In 2011 it was Dr. John Jackson who made a bold decision and hired me as Jessup’s Chief Development Officer. My new job: make new friends, cultivate biblical generosity for the glory of God, and help to build the legacy of WJU.
It has been an 11-year association with William Jessup University. During this time every member of the Hogue family became a Jessup graduate—with my wife, Tammy, overachieving by earning her teaching credential and master’s degree. We love Jessup! We are Warriors for life and forever grateful for God’s hand through Jessup.
As I depart on the “third leg” of God’s vocational calling, I separate from Jessup physically. The relocation is a sweet sorrow; we will forever be Jessup donors and family. In my departure, may I make one final request of you? Would you consider making an end-of-year gift in honor of my tenure at WJU?
Tammy and I have annually and faithfully contributed to Jessup’s student scholarship fund since 2010—and we plan on continuing our support from a distance.
Over my tenure as Chief Development Officer, Tammy and I made a total of 210 gifts to the University Scholarship Fund. Can I challenge you—our most generous supporters and partners—to make 210 gifts to the University Scholarship Fund before midnight December 31, 2017?
Help me end with a bang, supporting student scholarships at William Jessup University. Thank you from the bottom of my Warrior heart!

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:19-21)
