Jeff Collignon

Development Manager
Jeff has found his home at the IRONMAN Foundation, bringing together his professional expertise in fundraising and his passion for endurance sports. Prior to joining the IRONMAN Foundation, Jeff held development leadership roles with the United Way working with donors and nonprofits to help improve the community.

During college, Jeff made the decision that he would always do something fun for his career. This led to exciting positions in marketing and sales with Anheuser Busch, Tampa Bay Lightning, and LEGOLAND. While working with these companies, he had the opportunity to get involved with community activities both as a volunteer and donor. When the opportunity to join the United Way presented itself, Jeff thought he would give it a try for a couple of years. There he found a challenge and joy in fundraising for the community that led to a new career. Now with the IRONMAN Foundation, Jeff is excited to fundraise among his peers of endurance athletes. Jeff is an avid cyclist and is excited to complete his first IRONMAN Race soon. When not working or riding, Jeff spends time with his wife and two young boys at the theme parks in central Florida.
