 Jill Marten is a veteran Florida human resources executive with extensive experience guiding the corporate operations of heath care providers. Focused on community, Jill Marten holds board responsibilities with the Miami-based Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency (LAORA).

 Affiliated with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s Daughtry Family Department of Surgery, LAORA serves a population of more than six million throughout South Florida and the Bahamas and is one of nearly 60 federally designated United Network for Organ Sharing-certified agencies nationwide.

 LAORA plays a vital role in ensuring that patients with life-threatening conditions have access to donated organs that can save their lives. Donating organs not only helps people recover from serious illnesses but gives comfort and purpose to the family members of loved ones who have died. Unfortunately, organ demand far outstrips supply, and approximately 100,000 people are currently on a waiting list. In 2013 alone, approximately 6,000 individuals died because they were not able to access needed organs. The Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency encourages people to address this problem by registering as eye, organ, and tissue donors.
