Robert (Bob) O’Brien
The day after retiring, Bob took his first trip to Haiti with his wife Flo Anne in 2004 assisting his church, Palms Presbyterian Church, Jacksonville Beach, Fl. in the construction of the first phase of the school at Blanchard (Terre Noire). Since that trip, Bob AND Flo Anne have been hooked on Haiti. Bob has made a number of trips to Haiti assisting Flo Anne in her responsibilities as HOM’s Primary School support person, assisting the team installing the Water System at Cite Soleil and co-leading his church’s medical mission team.
After the January 12, 2010 earthquake, Bob was asked to lead the reconstruction of HOM facilities and is currently serving as HOM/MICECC’s Chief Engineer and Director of Construction. Bob was elected to the HOM Board in 2013.
Bob was ordained an elder in the Presbyterian church in 1975 and has served in 5 different churches in 4 states. He and Flo Anne have 2 grown children and 4 grandsons. Bob is using his expertise gained in over 36 years in the construction industry to provide the guidance in rebuilding our facilities to earthquake and hurricane standards while training our Haitian brothers and sisters in proper construction techniques.
