“He brings a wealth of experience with over 35 years of accounting and finance expertise. Morris Habitat is a complex organization with home building, home repair, and retail operations. Jack is enthusiastic about connecting with our team, understanding the intricacies of our organization, and identifying opportunities to enhance the services we offer.”

Koeppe, of Newfoundland, says he looks forward to the post.

“I am excited to take on this new role to support our critical mission of building and improving affordable housing for families here in New Jersey,” said Koeppe.

“Working in partnership with our valued team members, donor base and volunteer network, I look forward to assisting the organization as it takes bold action to further expand its impact on communities across Morris and Middlesex counties and beyond.”

Previously, Koeppe served as founder and principal of North Star Capital Group, a real estate investment company whose mission is to give people a better place to live. He has also served in a variety of finance, controller, accounting, and audit positions at Realogy Holdings Corporation, Weichert Workforce Mobility, Core Laboratories, Borg-Warner Security Corporation, and Deloitte.

Koeppe holds a Master of Business Administration from Seton Hall University and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Saint Peter’s University. He is also a Certified Public Accountant.

Morris Habitat for Humanity builds more than just homes—the organization empowers families to build brighter futures for generations to come. Home is the foundation to achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance that people need to shape a better tomorrow for themselves and their families, says the organization, which is based on Salem Street in the township.

Additionally, every home constructed helps to strengthen the fabric and economies of local communities for all citizens.

Randolph Project

Currently, the organization’s largest project to date, “The Crossings at Bennett Avenue,” is nearing completion on Bennett Avenue in Randolph Township.

Buildings one and two will be completed this year. Buildings 3 and 4 will be completed next year. The project consists of 25 units in four buildings. There will be three bedrooms in seven of the homes, two bedrooms in 14, and one bedroom in four.

Low-income families will pay $90,000 for a one-bedroom unit or $110,000 for a two-bedroom unit. Moderate-income families will pay $130,000 for a one-bedroom unit, $170,000 for a two-bedroom unit, or $190,000 for a three-bedroom unit.

Twenty-five new condos and a community room will be built on the former E.A. Porter industrial site on Bennett Avenue. Residents will enjoy a picnic area, a play area, and a bike path to stores and restaurants on South Salem Street. The 2.5-acre property was acquired by Randolph Township in 2008 through tax foreclosure and was donated to Morris Habitat. The township was responsible for environmental remediation, demolition of existing structures, site design, approvals, and permitting.

Morris Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization, Habitat for Humanity International, committed to building homes, communities, and hope. The organization, which is one of the leading builders of affordable housing in New Jersey, serves 68 municipalities in Morris and Middlesex Counties and the Greater Plainfield area.
