Jim Dingfelder is a volunteer and the Volunteer Coordinator for Rocky Mountain Regional VA Fisher House. After retiring from a long career in customer service in early 2015, Jim meticulously planned out his retirement looking for ways to keep himself busy and to give back to his community. Ultimately he chose Rocky Mountain Regional VA Fisher House and soon after decided to take over the herculean task of managing all of our volunteers. Jim is responsible for organizing and tracking all volunteer requests. Without his wonderful assistance, the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Fisher House would not be able to benefit to the degree that it does from the generosity of our community.
