Without a doubt, the coolest group in storytelling.

Jack York

Founder/Chief Storyteller

Jack started out in Silicon Valley working at a tech company. His favorite part was traveling the globe, meeting people, seeing how they lived, hearing their stories…but trying to sell them semiconductors definitely wasn’t part of his passion.

So, after 17 years, Jack left his job, packed up his equipment and—wondered what the heck to do with it. Following his desire to connect with people and help them connect with others, he and his friend Leslie donated computers to an assisted living community in California. The donation became a labor of love, and led to the founding of It’s Never 2 Late (iN2L).

Today, Jack wants to enrich their lives even more. At an age when most people begin their retirement, Jack wants to meet people in the middle of theirs and put their best stories center stage.

He’s traveling the country in a 42-foot trailer to capture the lives of our oldest generation, and share their greatest experience /triumph/regret/love/hardship/ comeback/etc. Because with worst thing that can happen to amazing tales, is that they never even get to be told.

Kristi Stoglin

COO/Chief Chaos Architect

Kristi has spent the last 15 years working in the senior living space in a variety of roles. Most recently, she lead the Client Operations team at iN2L where she developed and grew the support model, resulting in a 97% retention rate. All that means is: she likes talking to people and making everyone happy.

Kristi is dedicated to seniors and passionate about improving their quality of life, so joining the team as COO and Chaos Architect was an easy decision.

Did we mention her extreme attention to detail? Planning, organizing, and pulling off successful events for more than 100 people requires quite a bit of it. Luckily, Kristi has enough to go around. Even in the midst of chaos.

Jim Parker

CFO/Chief Driver

Jim has always wanted to help people. Starting as a Boy Scout when he was 6.

Fast forward a couple years (decades), and you’d find Jim in Skilled Nursing Facilities earning accolades for his dedication and efforts.

But why help a few senior living facilities when he could help even more? From different cities to different states, to different companies, communities, platforms, and startup chains that are still in business today, Jim won’t stop helping.

And it continues with TaleGate. Jim’s excited to spend more time with residents in different communities, and grow old(er) with Jack and Kristi.

Dale Nicholson

Ops/Jack Tracker

Dale started her career in the entertainment business, working for various music and film companies from the early 1970’s through 1990. As one would imagine, she learned a whole lot about people in this role. How to connect with different personalities and bring out their inner best.

This parlayed nicely to her next job in education, and then to iN2L in 2004. In 2022, with minimal to no arm twisting, Jack convinced Dale to join TaleGate so she can share her natural ability to make everyone smile.

Dale can’t wait to tour the US and hear all of the stories we’d otherwise never have the chance to hear.
