Mr. Ellis is a licensed realtor in Florida and began his realtor career almost 20 years ago after working for the JC Penney Company. Mr. Ellis is very involved in the St. Augustine community and has served in numerous leadership capacities for the City and community.
The UFHSA board is currently seeking to strengthen its partnership with other “non-profit” historical groups in St. Augustine and requested that the Advisory Leadership of Ft. Mose State park recommend a person to represent them on the UFHSA board. Mr. Ellis’s name was the immediate recommendation given his involvement with Ft. Mose.
Ft. Mose state park, located in St. Augustine, is the 1st legally sanctioned free African settlement in the U.S. UFHSA is fortunate to have Mr. Ellis’s leadership and vision and to have him bring this perspective. Enhancing a partnership with Ft. Mose Museum will truly benefit UF’s work in St. Augustine.
