PORT ANGELES — 1st Security Bank has announced the retirement of long-time Port Angeles banker Jeff Allen.

Allen began his career with SeaFirst Bank in 1976 after graduating from the University of Washington.

He became the manager of the Port Angeles branch of Bank of America in 1987 after its purchase of SeaFirst in 1986.

He has been with 1st Security since the community bank bought Bank of America’s four North Olympic branches in 2016.

Allen has previously served on the tribal council of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and has chaired the tribe’s Gaming Commission since it was formed in 1995.

He has coached youth soccer, basketball and baseball and he umpired Little League baseball.

Allen plans to spend his time golfing, fishing, crabbing, traveling, going to ball games, continuing with the Gaming Commission and working on his house.

He says that he is looking forward to “being able to leave on a whim for whatever sounds fun.”
