Jack Jowers

An economics and political science double major, Jack believes in the promise of the American Dream and is committed to developing policy that catalyzes socioeconomic mobility. His experiences serving his community, from leading a program providing free ACT preparation tutoring for low-income students to mentoring elementary school students at risk for incarceration, imbued in him an awareness of the barriers to achievement faced by historically marginalized and low-income communities and a passion for helping to tear those barriers down. Working at various social impact organizations and as an intern for US Senator Mitt Romney, Jack developed innovative new solutions and improved existing mechanisms to drive investment into under-resourced communities. He plans to pursue an MPP with a focus on education and economic development and intends to work as a Congressional policy director, crafting and enacting legislation that strengthens and modernizes educational and economic development systems. Jack enjoys playing basketball, debating hypotheticals, using Oxford commas, and making lists of his favorite activities.
