Jan Steber earned Bachelor of Science and Master’s degrees in Petroleum Engineering from Penn State. Joining Mobil Oil, he worked in Venezuela, Libya (where he met Joan, his wife of 55 years), Paris, Nigeria, Norway, Dallas and Australia where he retired as Producing Manager after 37 years of service. Living on south Siesta Key since 1993, and feeling they should return some of their good fortune to the community, Jan and Joan began volunteering at Meals on Wheels and Pelican Man’s Bird Sanctuary in 1993. Jan began animal rescue, transport, and release with Wildlife Center of Venice in 2004. In 2018, he joined the Board as Vice President. The Mobil Foundation donates $500 to a charity if a retiree puts in 40 hours volunteering in a calendar quarter. In 15 years, Jan has never failed to earn this donation. Jan has also been an active blood donor.
