PRO is a non-profit, parent run volunteer organization which sponsors youth sports within the Papillion-La Vista School District and surrounding areas. PRO is dedicated to the development of the community's young people through athletics, and dedicated volunteers like Jim and Sue O’Con help make this possible.

Jim and Sue O’Con have been valuable assets to Papillion Recreation Organization (PRO) for nearly 40 years. Jim was instrumental in starting the sports organization for elementary school boys and girls in the Papillion area, and now serves as a lifetime board member for the organization. The couple have spent countless hours volunteering to schedule concession stand workers and umpires for baseball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, and basketball games, on top of working these tasks themselves. Currently, Sue oversees the basketball program at the La Vista Rec Center and if the scheduled referees don’t make the game, Jim takes over the job.

Today, PRO serves about 5,000 Papillion-La Vista area children in various sports, and none of this would be possible without Jim and Sue O’Con. Jim and Sue are just as dedicated to PRO now as they were when their children were in the program. Any parent who has had a child in PRO would recognize Jim and Sue, but may not know the thousands of hours they have volunteered to make the program successful.
