Jack Riesch Directory

While we’ve witnessed major medical and scientific advances, we cannot continue to allow this to be a trend.  Not for ourselves.  Not for our children.

R&R Insurance Owner, Jack Riesch, literally takes this to heart with a grandfather who passed away from a heart attack.  For him, the risk is real.  An accident left a younger brother a quadriplegic; his youngest brother passed away at 29 from esophageal cancer, and his brother-in-law who didn't make it home from Afghanistan. Jack knows all too well that life can change in an instant.  He is now passionate about providing resources for everyone to make improvements today for better tomorrows.

Why the American Heart Association?  "Walking my daughter down the aisle is WHY. Seeing my son get his diploma is WHY. Celebrating my next wedding anniversary is WHY.", reflects Riesch.

Paying closer attention to his own health in recent years with a regular exercise routine and eating a healthy diet, Jack is walking-the-walk already.  And now it's time to pay it forward by advocating for others to change their health outcomes.  Not only helping others to add more years to their life, but more life in their years.

By partnering with the American Heart Association, together we are able to support a culture of health:

  1. Improving quality of life
  2. Ensuring health environments
  3. Strengthening the economy
  4. Elevating care
  5. Changing policy

What is your WHY?  Join Jack in supporting the cause:  click for more information.

RRI-EP-RickKalscheuer_FeatThe Spirit of Service Award, formerly known as the President’s Award, was established by the YMCA Board of Directors to honor individuals who have significantly impacted the Y, exemplify the Y's mission, and have provided outstanding leadership throughout the community. In the history of any successful organization, select individuals create positive change so that organizations can rise to new levels of service.

R&R's, Rick Kalscheuer, not only benefited from the Y while growing up at West Suburban, he has given his time, talent, and treasure to ensure there is a strong Y presence in the greater Waukesha County area for years to come. Rick started on the YMCA board in Waukesha in 1995, serving on many committees such as finance, fundraising, and board development. Rick was involved in developing the organizational model with the addition of the Mukwonago Y and also provided keen insight in the 2014 Y acquisition process that significantly expanded our community reach. Rick is concluding his two year leadership role as Chief Volunteer Officer and has done a tremendous job of positioning the Y for continued growth and prosperity. He also serves on the YMCA Foundation Board and has been a great Y ambassador in his many community service and board activities.

They are active in the community; Waukesha County Business Alliance, where Rick chairs the education committee and is part of the Manufacturing Alliance Executive Council; Lake Country Rotary (Rick is a past president); and St Charles Catholic Church.

Rick celebrated 30 years at R&R this year - leading our Municipality Division and assisting clients in the Manufacturing and Healthcare space.

He has been a significant leader in the history and success of the YMCA. Congratulations to, Rick!
