    A former board member and past president of the Western Washington Football Officials Association, Joe officiates junior college football, small college football, and the Women's Football League. He also worked as a referee for the NFL's Player Development League. He received the 2011 WOA Meritorious Service Award and is a veteran liaison to officiating as part of the new outreach program Battlefield to Ballfield.

    Beyond his officiating, Joe has been involved in local sports as a coach. He coached youth basketball at St. Patrick's from 2007-12, youth baseball in Tacoma from 2009-11, and flag football in Tacoma in 2010.
