It is with a heavy heart that we notify all of you that we lost a long time Hero's Ride Committee member to a long battle with cancer. Jim Geiger participated for many years with our event and was a great friend to many. He will be greatly missed.
For the second year in a row, IAH has included a trip to the Hero's Ride as part of their silent
auction. This year Steve & Mistie Koinm will be joining the ride all the way from Houston, TX.
Be sure to give them a big Ohio welcome!
Steve and Mistie have been married for over 26 years and have three children all in college at the
same time (YIKES!). They live in Houston, TX where they have been for the last 21 years.
Steve currently works as a Pre-Sales Consultant for Oracle where he helps companies improve
their IT infrastructures. He spends a lot of time traveling around Texas for his work to places
like San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas and rides his Harley Davidson Electra Glide on most of
those trips logging 20,000+ miles per year. Previously Steve and Mistie were self-employed
in their own consulting and services business for about eight years and Mistie still keeps some of that business (as well as a busy household) operating. Their oldest child, Savannah, is a Senior at SFA but left there for a bit to get her certification as an Occupational Therapy Assistant and then plans to then finish up her Bachelor’s in Speech Pathology. Their son, Rocky, is starting at Oklahoma State University (both Steve and Mistie’s Alma Mater, Go Pokes!) in the Fall of 2015 pursuing a degree in Fire Protection and Safety Engineering Technology. Their youngest, Jessamine, tested out of her Senior year of High School and got a head start on college. By the end of this year she will have taken all she can at the local college and will be transferring to East Central University in Oklahoma to continue her studies in Psychology.
Steve and Mistie attend Bear Creek United Methodist Church and have been involved with Impact a Hero since 2006 when one of the kids from the Youth Group, Casey Owens, was injured and introduced the Church to this wonderful group that had been helping him out. Since then, they have helped out Bear Creek United Methodist Church with their annual charity golf tournament that supports Impact a Hero, Warrior Benefit Clay Shoot that also supports Impact a Hero, and the annual Impact a Hero Gala where Steve is the AV coordinator. They participate in regularly in rides that support our Veterans and Wounded Heroes including being members of and and riding regularly with the Patriot Guard. They are so thankful for these young men and women that serve our country and look forward to adding the Hero’s Ride to their growing list of ways they can help Impact a Hero and make sure that no one is left behind.
