On October 24, 2019, the JBGoodwin family lost a beloved colleague and friend when the Founding President of our San Antonio Division, Reagan Greer, passed away peacefully after a long-term illness.

Having successfully led the San Antonio division from its inception in 2010, Reagan was the very embodiment of an inspirational leader.
