Meet Jesús, whose ability to connect with individuals facing adversity, coupled with his deep understanding of the complexities they encounter, has allowed him to provide meaningful assistance and guidance to communities around Massachusetts. His unwavering commitment to bridging gaps between communities and government exemplifies his dedication to creating a more inclusive and equitable society.

Jesús moved to the United States from Mexico in 2009 to work as Deputy Officer in the Department of Citizen Protection at the Consulate General of Mexico in Boston. In that job, he built 9 years of experience in constituent services assisting immigrant populations in five New England states. He has engaged with people facing very challenging situations, including poverty, imprisonment or immigration detention, and victims of crime, ensuring they were aware of their legal rights and felt supported every step of the way.

In September 2017, he joined the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services to serve as a liaison for the East Boston neighborhood, and in 2019 he took the role of Citywide Latino Liaison for the administrations of the Mayors; Marty Walsh, Kim Janey, and Michelle Wu.

Over the course of his career in the metropolitan area, he has focused on making sure residents receive support and guidance to access services, by creating and implementing programs and plans that guarantee equal access to everyone. He has continued to provide invaluable community services, organizing community meetings, and collaborating with community leaders to address and resolve constituent issues around the Commonwealth.
