  • Thanks to Our Helper Elves!!

    A huge thank you to our helper Elves of 2017 who made the Season possible. Wesley and Haley Loveless spent many hours over the holidays helping Carson and I put up our Christmas decorations, we could not have done it without them. Andrew Tabor also helped again for his third year going, he carries all of the HEAVY stuff up into the attic. These fellows will also be helping us take things down at the end of the season.

    During this time, Wesley got to take me fishing in his secret spot and I watched him catch a BIG one, over seven pounds! Wesley and Haley also met Santa Claus this year as you can see. We simply could not have been able to get everything done without the help of our neighborhood kids. Even our golf Pro, K. W. Godwin used to help decorate over seventeen years ago.

    Happiest New Year to all and THANK YOU!

    DCCOA Board of Directors

  • Meet the Board of Director Candidates

    Donald Gibbens
    I have been married to my wife Betty for 47 years and have resided in Deercreek for the last 24 years. I have two grown children and two grandchildren. I studied business administration in college, and I transferred to Jacksonville from Memphis, TN in 1992 with Naegele Outdoor Advertising where I held the position of VP/General Manager until I retired after 27 years of service. I have also served on the Board of Directors for the Florida Outdoor Advertising Association. In addition to my corporate experience, I also served in the US Army as a lineman and fire directional control for Artillery units in South Korea.

    I believe that promoting positive community and economic growth in our neighborhood is important, and that the HOA should seek to understand the impacts of their actions on the majority of residents before taking actions that will have wide and potentially unanticipated impacts within the community. I will strive to make sound decisions for our community on our board, and do my best to ensure that I bring transparency and common sense to the board's discussions. I also have a strong sense of fiscal responsibility and will work to ensure that our HOA dollars are prioritized appropriately and focused on the most critical projects. I am a common-sense guy and I will bring common sense ideas to represent our community with fairness, respect, honor, pride and vigor.

    “I humbly ask for your vote.”

    Christine Bell
    Hello Neighbors! My name is Christine Bell. I've been a Deercreek resident since 2010. As a Board member, my number one goal will be to act in the best interest of the residents. This entails gaining an understanding of what this community wants. Deercreek is comprised of single folks, young families, empty nesters and everything in between. All categories bring unique and important perspectives that must be heard and respected. The next priority is maximizing transparency with the community. As a Board member, my role would be to serve the residents. We all win when everyone understands the challenges the community faces and when we work together to solve them!

    A little bit about me. I'm a wife and a mother of 3 amazing little people. They keep me busy and on my toes in the best way. I also serve as the Chief Operations Counsel for Acosta, the nation's largest food broker. I am responsible for crafting strategies, advising our executive team, negotiating client deals, reducing the organization's risk profile and managing my team.

    Please vote for me!

    Frank Tuenge 

    My wife, Cheryl, and I have been property owners in Deercreek for more than 20 years. We have been in our second home in this development for 7 years, a home we built, performing as our own general contractor. We have been married for 48 years, have one adult son, and three grandchildren.

    I retired in 2016, after 46 years in the environmental services industry; 20 years in city/county government (10 years each, Jax/Duval County, 1971-1980, Clay County, 2006-2016), and 26 years at two publicly held, NY stock exchange companies (Waste Management, Inc., 1980-1993, and Republic Services, Inc., 1993-2006). Having served in management positions in local government, I well understand government functions. In senior level executive positions in private industry, I was responsible for a variety of business types throughout Florida. I am well versed in having P & L responsibilities, and providing leadership in managing a variety of businesses. I routinely prepared, negotiated, and managed contracts (both government and private industry), ranging in annual values from a few thousand, to multi-millions of dollars. In addition to my civilian career, after 26 years of service, I retired in 1993 from the US Army/Florida National Guard as a Lt. Colonel. During my military career, I served in numerous command roles. The more notable military awards and decorations received were; Air Assault Badge, Army Achievement Medal, Army Commendation Medal, and the Meritorious Service Medal.

    I have served on our Community’s Covenants Committee for 20 years, and now offer my experience and time, to serve on our Community’s Board, at a time when our Community has matured to the point of requiring different considerations than in the past. I think transparency, openness, strong property management, as well as strong fiscal discipline, are very important for an HOA, and critical to maintaining and growing home valuations. I will do my best to make common-sense decisions based on my life experience in corporate America, as well as, the military, to ensure Deercreek grows its status as one of North Florida’s premier communities.

    George Partin
    Having lived in Deercreek for over 20 years, I have seen many challenges that the Association has experienced. Upgrading the roads, flooding issues and even dealing with raccoons that were diseased. In the coming years, the Association will have new management and will need an experienced board to work with them. I would like to offer my services to assist in this endeavor. 

    I have over 25 years of management experience with Blue Cross and other companies.
    I also served on the board for 6 years previously, with three of them as President. Over the last few years I have served on the common property committee and the finance committee and see that there are many issues going forward. I will represent the members of this community with their best interest my main concern. I would appreciate your vote in
    the upcoming election.

    John Joyce 
    John and Buffy Joyce have been Deercreek residents and club members since 2000. John has over 40-year career in commercial real estate development and management, having successfully served in senior and executive management positions for several national real estate companies before founding Joyce Development Group in 2004. He holds several industry-related professional certificates and is the former Florida State Director for the 65,000-member International Council of Shopping Centers. John was appointed to the Deercreek Finance Committee in 2010 and has served as chairman of the Committee since 2012. He was appointed by the Board to serve as Treasurer of the Association in November 2015 following Danny Becton’s election to the Jacksonville City Council.

    Bob Kichler
    Born in Cincinnati, Ohio-my wife and I moved to Deercreek in August 2005. Married over 30 years with two grown sons and I am President of Southern Reprographics, Inc. I am a business man and my company deals with wholesale distribution of equipment and supplies, such as wide-format papers, inks and toners for architectural and engineering businesses, primarily serving the Atlanta market.

    The past three years I have served on the Deercreek Board of Directors as Access Control Liaison. Two of those three years was spent serving as Vice President and a total of six years as a member of the Access Control Committee where keeping our community safe is our first priority.

    My wife and I have always lived in planned communities, giving me broad exposure to all the typical issues facing Deercreek today. In the past I served as a “Daniel Mentor” and as a tutor in “Take Stock in Children” here in Jacksonville. During my past 6 years serving on the Access Control Committee, I have dealt with resident issues, Guardhouse needs, accidents inside and inside our community, IT issues at the gate, contract negotiations, and made many new friends along the way.

    I look forward to serving 3 more years on the Deercreek Board of Directors because, as a Deercreek homeowner and a business man I will continue to benefit our wonderful community.

    Bragging Rights Well Deserved!!

    Deercreek’s very own USTA Women’s 55 and older 6.0 tennis team went all the way to the finals of the National Championships in Orlando, FL on October 27 – 29, 2017 to clinch the second-place trophy. Quite an accomplishment considering they had to defeat top teams from across the nation for this coveted title.

    Our team includes: Barb Smith (the fearless Captain), Donna Bernard, Janet Daechsel, Bonnie King, Karen Sayre, Michele Abner, Nancy Blacker and Judy Peace. Also on the team though not at Nationals are Marie Malloy and Pamela Ernst. Deercreek Tennis Director Kris Gouin was there to cheer them along with two unofficial “cheerleaders” (husband Gary Smith and brother John McNicol).

    After competing locally this past winter and finishing in first place, the team advanced to the Florida Sectional Championship in May where they won first place, leading to the opportunity to compete for the National Championship title in October. It is a huge honor and achievement to compete at this level AND reach the finals. They were SO CLOSE to actually winning the entire championship.

    Another Deercreek resident Carol Whitmire plays on the Women’s 55 and older 8.0 team for Southside and their team captured the National Championship title in their division!! So our Deercreek tennis ladies have something to brag about. Next time you see any of these ladies, give them a shout out and congrats, – it is well deserved!!!

    The championships were held at the innovative new USTA National Campus in Orlando. With 100 courts and well thought out amenities, the facility and staff create an exceptional experience for players and spectators. Established in 1980, USTA League has grown from 13,000 players in a few parts of the country in its first year to more than 900,000 players across the nation today, making it the world’s largest recreational tennis league.
