BOARD OF DIRECTORS
President: Ben Cohn
Hello Timberlake Community,
My Name is Ben Cohn, and I am currently your Acting Timberlake HOA President. I have been a resident of Timberlake for the past 15 years with my wife and two kids. I am a volunteer swim coach for our Timberlake Timberwolves, a soccer coach with Beach FC, and a volunteer with Green Run NJROTC. I love being outside, swimming at our local pools, going to the beach, working out, meeting new people, and helping to develop the youth of our community, though coaching, to become the best versions of themselves.
I am also a graduate, holding two degrees, one in Supervision and Management and one in Organizational Leadership. I have been a military leader for the past 23 years, and really enjoy the team environment and helping others around me to surpass their own expectations and goals they have set for themselves.
Our community and the people in it have been wonderful to my family and I, and I just wanted to give a heartfelt thank you, to all of you, for giving me a chance to help make positive changes as your Acting President.
Vice President: Sherman Franklin
Hello Timberlake! My Name is Sherman Franklin and I’m new to the Board of Directors for Timberlake as of September 2022. I have been a home owner and resident of Timberlake since December 1986. I arrived in Hampton Roads in May of 1977, stationed at NAS Oceana and then Dam Neck, serving in the USN for nine years. I worked in the simulator field for the first eighteen years of my career and have been working in the Air Traffic Control field for the past 27 years where I am currently a manager for Leidos (Formerly Lockheed Martin). I’m an avid Football (Go Rams) and Baseball (Go Mets) fan and played softball until 2020 when I hung my cleats up. I have been married to my incredible wife for nearly 40 years and we are blessed with three wonderful children and four amazing grandchildren. I felt it was time for me to do my civic duty and try to improve our wonderful community and make it an even better place to live. We have had so many great neighbors and some have become practically family over the years. Timberlake is my home and I want to do everything I can to help keep it a great place to live!
