The Loudoun Laurels Foundation has selected Chuck Kuhn of JK Moving Services in Washington, DC as its 2020 Laureate.
Chuck is both a businessman and philanthropist and has worked in Loudoun County since 1994. He is well known for his humanitarian, land preservation and conservation, and community-oriented efforts throughout.
At the age of 16, while attending W.T. Woodson High School in Annandale, Chuck created JK Moving Services. In 1982, he started his company in the basement of his childhood home with just two employees. Today, JK Moving Services is one of the largest employers in Loudoun and the largest independent moving company in North America. In 1997, Chuck founded Capital Relocation Services, LLC which provides global relocation services.
Chuck Kuhn has a deep commitment to preservation of the natural and historic resources of Loudoun. In the past 10 years, he has preserved more than 5,000 acres in Loudoun, Fauquier, and Frederick Counties through the Virginia Conservation Easement Program. He has also established the JK Community Farm. The farm is operated as an organic farm facility for the benefit of Loudoun Hunger Relief, providing over 50,000 pounds of desperately needed fresh fruits, vegetables and meats to Loudoun residents.
The Loudoun Laurels Foundation is committed to honouring exceptional community service for the benefit of Loudoun County citizens and to developing future civic leaders through scholarships and mentorships.
