With our nonprofit program taking off, we thought this would be the perfect time to stop and revisit the amazing group of people we have that make this possible. Please reach out if you would like to speak more with any of the members of our staff, any of us would be more than happy to spend some time connecting.
President – Charles Desrosiers (email@example.com)
Charlie was born and raised in NH and is a proud father of two young boys. He has a strong background in facilities management from Manchester Community College and project management from UC Irvine. He is co-owner and founder of MTSS Funding with his best friend Stephan Wilson. Stephan has been his inspiration for starting a nonprofit and hopes to continue to spread hope to more people every day. He has done amazing things for The Life Beyond Foundation, Inc. as well as taking over ES Riders and making it his own.
Treasurer – Steve Wilson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Steve was the 1978 easterseals poster child for the state of NH! He has worked alongside his best friend, President Charles Desrosiers for 20 years helping to raise money for nonprofits that are close to his heart. Steve was born with spina bifida which at the time was life-threatening. Thanks to his amazing mother and great doctors, he is here today. His hope is to grow awareness for nonprofits like easterseals, St. Jude, Liberty House Veterans Homeless Shelter, and the Intreprid Fallen Heroes Foundation. Steve has been a huge asset to our team, making scooter deliveries to veterans and growing a deeper relationship with them as well as their families. He is always willing to do whatever it takes to grow our nonprofit and has been a strong contribution to the success we have seen.

Easterseals Volunteer – Corey Davison
Corey was born on July 8, 1971, in Lawrence, MA. Corey is the son of a career enlisted man in the Massachusetts Army National Guard who rose to the rank of Command Sergeant Major, and a Pelham NH Middle School teacher. He was born blind and has a condition known as septo-optic dysplasia, which caused his optic nerves to never develop and also affects his senses of taste and smell.
He attended and graduated from high school at the Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, MA. This is the same school from which Helen Keller and her teacher, Anne Sullivan, also graduated. Corey has a strong interest in broadcasting with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of MLB sportscasters and game show hosts and announcers. He is friendly and affable and enjoys interacting with people. He has worked as a customer greeter and announcer at Savers prior to the COVID pandemic and has been an absolute superstar since starting with us. He makes everyone around his smile and is amazing with spreading awareness for ES Riders.
