SVYL Staff


​​Bree Haskell
Metro Director

I was invited to YL in high school. It was love at first sight! I watched a group of football players laugh, encourage each other, and dig into real life conversations…. not what I was used to seeing in high school. I built houses in Mexico. I was invited to a Young Life camp in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I was mentored. I was given a place to be encouraged, to laugh like crazy, go on incredible adventures, and figure out for myself what I wanted my life to be about and who I wanted to be. I am grateful for my Young Life leaders who invested countless hours into my life.
It is a great privilege to do the same today and to lead a team of 100 volunteer leaders and committee as well as our incredible staff. I have been on YL staff in San Jose since 2006. My husband Greg has been a volunteer leader for 15 years and was involved with YL in San Jose as a high school student. It’s a great joy to raise our kids around Young Life friends! Our oldest first attended a Willow Glen HS YL Club at 2.5 weeks old! I’m glad you’re checking out YL and if I don’t already know you, I look forward to meeting you! ​

I'm a Bay Area native, that has travelled the world. I've been involved with Young Life since 1992, in various roles, from YL Capernuam buddy, team leader, staff, and supporter. 

I came on as Silicon Valley Young Life's Metro Administor, in March 2015. Prior to being on staff, I worked at WestGate Church for 7 years, Wells Fargo for a couple of years, and a missionary with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) for 3 years in England. I'm excited to be part of reaching this valley for Christ, with this SVYL team.

Area Director North San Jose
San Jose High School & Lincoln High School

My name is Jory Wilson.  I’ve been involved with Young Life for the past ten years as a YL kid, volunteer leader, team leader, student staff, and, now, full-time staff.  I love Jesus and love hanging out with high school and middle school aged kids.  I enjoy being physically active as much as I can.  I enjoy snowboarding, wakeboarding, running, kickboxing, grappling, painting, reading, writing, listening to new music, and going to the movie theatres.  I’m close with my parents, two younger brothers, and my girlfriend, Karina.  Last but not least, I love to laugh!
Associate Area Director East San Jose
James Lick High Schools
Growing up in East San Jose, I did not truly understand what a relationship with Christ looked like.  I struggled with identity issues due to my biracial background.  I tried fitting in at the cost of my integrity, but had an encounter with God that set me on a new path.  My new identity in Christ gave me purpose and hope.  Almost 20 years ago, I began an exciting journey into youth ministry as a volunteer, which eventually led me to work as a full time minister with Young Life.  My wife, JJ and I, count it a privilege to serve kids in our native community.
