“Even though any teller can assist my mom, she always asks for Mike. She has difficulty hearing and knows Mike will patiently take the time to explain. It’s reassuring knowing that he’s nearby. He is such a blessing and will always be considered part of the family.” —Leslie Kawamoto

Jane Leong retired over 30 years ago and lives with her daughter and son-in-law, Leslie and Eric Kawamoto. Jane’s relationship with Bank of Hawaii began in the late 1950s when she worked at an office above the branch on South King Street, where she opened her first checking account.

Leslie works at Alexander & Baldwin as the CEO’s assistant. In 2012, she received a call from Sr. Relationship Banker Mike Kobashigawa at the Manoa Branch. He suggested a meeting with a Bank of Hawaii financial planner to grow her mother’s money. “That was the beginning of our wonderful relationship with Mike,” Leslie said. “In addition to Mike, I have met many wonderful Bank of Hawaii employees downtown as part of my job. Whenever they call or visit, their good energy adds a smile to my day.”
