Chuck Whiteley is a partner of TouchPoint Networks, LLC, which specializes in Managed Data Services and Voice Applications. Born in Merced, California, Chuck grew up in a small farming community where he learned the value of hard work and caring for the community. After high school Chuck spent four years in the United States Air Force maintaining Digital Flight Simulators. Later Chuck attended Fresno State University with a Computer Science Major. He has been a resident of the Rogue Valley for 23 years and plans on retiring here.

Personally, Chuck values his personal relationship with Jesus Christ, his family, and the Rogue Valley community. His wife, Lisa, works at the Harry & David Country Store and together they have four children and five grandchildren. They enjoy spending time on tropical beaches and quality time with their grandkids. In his spare time, Chuck also enjoys running, fishing, reading, mountain climbing, and volunteering.

Chuck has a true heart for improving his community and people’s lives. He has served on the Blossom Hills Preschool Board of Directors and currently serves on the board of directors of Hearts with a Mission in addition to leading the Rogue Valley Family YMCA. As a proponent of health, Chuck has also been actively involved in organizing many running events such as the Turkey Trot and Bridge the Gap. He is currently Vice President of the Southern Oregon Runners.

Serving on the YMCA Board of Directors gives Chuck the opportunity to align his care for others with an organization that he believes changes people’s lives for the better. Chuck has a passion for providing a safe place where children in the Rogue Valley can develop a strong hope for the future. He believes the Rogue Valley Family YMCA is just that place.
