Meet Jesse

Jesse joined Common Cause in July of 2015. He leads efforts to increase the size, political power and influence of Common Cause members and supporters through online channels, including web, social media and email.

Jesse has a background in grassroots organizing and is a graduate of the Green Corps Field School for Environmental Organizing. Previous to Common Cause, Jesse was most recently the Director of Strategy and Campaigns with Echo & Co., a leading digital agency focused on the nonprofit sector. In that role Jesse developed web, email, and social media strategies for some of the largest non-profit advocacy organizations in the U.S., including The Public Interest Network, the Sierra Club, America’s Promise Alliance, and the Webby-award-winning Understood.org. Beyond his work with Common Cause, Jesse lectures on social media through the Experimental College at Tufts University. Jesse received a B.A. in Political Science from Haverford College.
