Rus Adams shares the things he can't live without


Rus is a customer liaison with Colen Built Development, LLC the developer of On Top of the World and Calesa Township, a new multi-generational residential community in southwest Ocala. His family includes sons June and Gabe, and Rus can’t say enough about how these young men have enriched his life and thanks Kids Central for all they did for June and even more so, for June’s adoption.

Arts and Tourism

I’ve been involved with the Tourist Development Council since its inception and a former board member of the Marion Cultural Alliance (since the early 2000’s), both of which helped make Ocala Marion County a true arts and tourist destination.


The News

I believe in staying informed about local and national activities. My favorites are Ocala Style’s sister publication, the Ocala Gazette; the Ocala Star-Banner; and NBC News. 


Downtown Eateries

My go-to places are Stella’s Modern Pantry, La Cuisine and Mark’s Prime Steakhouse.


Dillard’s Market Street at Heath Brook

This is my one-stop-shopping place for the jeans I wear on the job, a Tommy Bahama shirt for a casual Saturday or Sunday brunch and a sport coat to dress up a bit for dinner downtown.


Live Shows

I enjoy the variety of performances offered through the Ocala Civic Theatre and the Reilly Arts Center.
