Jo Jamison

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I have been working with kids, teens, and youth for about a decade, in a variety of settings: from alternative high schools to boarding schools, wilderness therapy, and small nonprofits. I am also a father to a lovable toddler and husband to an amazing wife who is studying social work.

Give us a glimpse into your role at United Way. How do you help us fulfill our mission? What are you most excited about accomplishing as a team?

As Equity and Network Development specialist, I am most excited about finding and developing opportunities for authentic integration of student voice throughout the decision-making process within our growing network of school and community partners.

What’s your favorite thing about our community?

I love that our community seems to be filled with a passion for improvement.

What would we find you doing when you aren’t at work?

You can usually find me hiking with my family, planning trips, or watching some new film or show.

Do you have any podcast, book, music, or movie recommendations?
