In addition to his professional duties, Long has been active globally, nationally and locally in charity work, the release noted; while Long’s non-profit involvements are too numerous to list, his focus is on children, health issues and youth athletics.

Long resides in Virginia and Arizona with his wife of 35 years, Diane, the release concluded.
