The Loudoun Laurels Foundation selected Chuck Kuhn, founder, president, and CEO of JK Moving Services, as its 2020 Laureate for his work to conserve natural resources and feed the hungry. Kuhn has worked on land conservation issues in Virginia for several years and recently created a nonprofit community farm in western Loudoun County.
Kuhn founded JK Moving in 1982 at the age of 16 when he went to W.T. Woodson High School in Annandale. Almost 40 years later, JK Moving is now based in Loudoun County and is one of the largest employers in the county. In 1997, Kuhn founded Capital Relocation Services LLC, which provides global moving services.
Over the past 10 years, Kuhn, who lives in Lincoln, has preserved more than 5,000 acres in Loudoun, Fauquier, and Frederick counties through the Virginia Conservation Easement Program. He also established JK Community Farm, south of Round Hill. The farm is operated as an organic farm facility for the benefit of Loudoun Hunger Relief, providing over 50,000 pounds of fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats to Loudoun residents.
