His son Peter now runs the center, as well as Huntsman Corporation, Jon Huntsman Jr. is serving as the ambassador to Russia, and Paul Huntsman runs the Salt Lake Tribune. His other children are involved in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and oversee the Huntsman Senior Games and the Huntsman Education Awards.
