Operations Manager Teresa Wease

For many years Teresa Wease was happy just being known as the Turks Team Mom. She and her children ran the concession stand and greeted the Turks fans making sure they enjoyed coming to the games. As the years went on and the demands of running the team expanded, Teresa’s participation also increased. Eventually, it was necessary to find a title for her. Considering the wide variety of tasks, being tagged the Operations Manager made sense since she worked to make sure all the gears of the well-oiled Turks organization worked together. She is responsible for advertising and marketing the team, selling sponsorships, scheduling special events, and creation of Friday Family Fun Nights, developing the partnership with the Massanutten Regional Library Summer Reading Program, all game-day operations, concessions, and merchandise stands. Teresa values and cherishes all the amazing friendships that she and Bob have made over the last 31 years with #TurksNation players, their families, and our wonderful fans. Her pride and joy are her children and grandchildren. Spending time with them is her favorite thing to do.
