San Bernardino, Calif., March 19, 2013 –John Exline has been selected as the new deputy Forest Supervisor of the San Bernardino National Forest. He is currently the District Ranger on the Hume Lake District of the Sequoia National Forest/Giant Sequoia National Monument in Dunlap, Calif.

“John’s extensive 32-year career in the Forest Service and his experience in California make him a great addition to the San Bernardino National Forest,” said Forest Supervisor Jody Noiron. “He has significant experience in forestry, fire, and all Forest Service programs and has a proven track record working with communities in California. We are pleased to welcome John to the forest.”

Exline, 55, received a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Biology from Lycoming College in Williamsport, Penn., in 1979 and a Master’s Degree in Forest Resource Management from Duke University in 1980.

Exline began his Forest Service career in January of 1981 on the Sequoia National Forest, working in timber management. John then did a stint as firefighter on the Redding Hotshot crew before returning to timber management, a field that Exline has worked in for several years on the Sequoia and Sierra National Forests.

In May 2001, Exline returned to the Sequoia National Forest as a District Ranger for the Hume Lake Ranger District, the position he has served in for the last 11 years. Exline has also served as acting Forest Supervisor for the Lassen National Forest as well as the Sierra National Forest.

John is married to Sue, who is currently the District Ranger for the Ojai Ranger District on the Los Padres National Forest. They have two children, Erin, who recently graduated from California Lutheran University and Brian, who is a freshman at Saint Mary’s College.

Exline reports for duty on March 24. He fills behind former Deputy Supervisor Thomas F. Gillett who retired in January.
