Board Members and Friends of the Kevin Bushell Foundation
Karen Bushell, President
Mother of Kevin Bushell and Founder of the Foundation
Annie Shane, Treasurer
Cyber Defense Analyst, Montgomery College
Annie joined the Navy right out of high school and was in for 12 years. Over the years she often shared her love of the Navy with Kevin. She even taught him the NATO phonetic alphabet when he was 10 years old while on a layover at an airport. All at Kevin’s insistence! After Kevin graduated from high school, he expressed an interest in joining the Navy and Annie encouraged him. She knew that Kevin would thrive in that environment, and he absolutely did.

Jennifer Moran, Board Member
Teacher at Goshen Elementary
Jennifer is currently a first-grade teacher at Goshen Elementary in Gaithersburg Maryland. She started her teaching career at Goshen in 2016 and the entire time she has taught first graders. Jennifer completed her master’s degree in Special Education from Towson University in May of 2020. Jennifer’s family own a local restaurant, Gentleman Jim’s, in Gaithersburg, MD, and that restaurant has always been a local favorite place to eat and drink over the years. Jennifer and her siblings went to school with Kevin and his brother and sisters. They started out at Goshen Elementary together and graduated from Gaithersburg High School together. Jennifer reached out to the family after we lost Kevin to invite us to the 1st Annual Goshen Veteran’s Day assembly. We were honored to attend and have formed a new relationship with Goshen Elementary. We are happy that Jennifer reached out to us and we are so glad to have her as part of the Foundation’s Board.
