Executive J.E. Isaac leaves Blazers


J.E. Isaac, a survivor of 22 years with the Portland Trail Blazers' front office, is leaving the organization at the end of July.

The Blazers announced his resignation in a statement on Tuesday, but made no mention of his plans, other than that he will be a consultant to the team.

Isaac's tenure with the Blazers dates to the summer "Slam 'n Jam" events the team used to host in what is now Jeld-Wen Field. His first title with the club was director of game operations and retail. He was promoted to vice president of business operations and then became senior vice president of business affairs, helping with government relations, real estate and business development and Rose Quarter operations.

The Blazers said they would "reorganize around Isaac's departure, assigning his responsibilities to other executives who will consult with Isaac as needed."
