William “Bill” A. Deyesso is the current CEO of Buyer’s Choice Inc., and has held a prolific and long-lasting career in the insurance industry. A family man, William Deyesso, father of three and grandfather of more, spends his time outside of work in support of multiple charities, including Toys for Tots.
Toys for Tots is a national nonprofit organization that collects toys and donations to buy toys for children in need, or for those whose families do not have the financial capability of providing their children with toys for Christmas, birthdays, etc. The organization was founded in 1995 as a subset of the Marine Corps, and originally was intended for families with service members in the Marine Corps. Toys for Tots has since expanded into a national organization with many local community branches, therefore serving a much wider reach.
In addition to collecting and distributing toys to children in need, Toys for Tots also has several more specific programs, such as its literacy program. The Literary Program follows the same lines as the general Toys for Tots efforts, but instead of donating toys, donors are encouraged to gift easily-read books to children instead. Sponsored by USPS, the program aims to decrease illiteracy of children in poverty through gifting them with learning materials in books. To donate, visit toysfortots.org.
With over three decades of experience in real estate management, William Deyesso has risen up the ranks and achieved the position of chief operating officer for Buyers Choice, Inc. During breaks from his work, William Deyesso spends his time deep sea fishing.
In the southeastern part of Cape Cod lies the first marine preserve in the Atlantic Ocean, called The Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument. It was created by the Obama administration in order to protect the thousand-year-old corals, shelters, and nurseries for various marine species.
The area will be free from commercial fishing by 2023, but recreational fishers and researchers will still be able to take advantage of the pristine marine preserve. Initially there was some concern by sport fishers and boaters about the new marine preserve, but the administration assured them that their activities are still allowed.
The initiative only prevents other entities from engaging in mining, drilling, and commercial fishing. Jeff Angers, the president of the Center for Coastal Conservation, pointed out that there is a significant difference between commercial and recreational fishing. “Recognizing this difference is important to fisheries management and to marine conservation.”
