Meet Jared West
Jared was born in La Porte, IN and attended Columbia College Chicago before relocating to Central Florida in 2012. Recently, Jared and his husband bought a house in Polk county.
Jared has previously worked for Atkins Global Engineering and Walt Disney World. As someone who has worked many part-time jobs in the past to pay the bills, Jared understands the struggles the people of HD 41 experience. Jared was also heavily involved with the Young Democrats of America, and served as the Indiana Congressional District 2 Chair.
He also believes a community is not a community unless people work for a better tomorrow. That’s why in 2016 he served as President on the non-profit A Voice For Them and helped fund rehabilitation for people suffering from drug addiction. He’s also organized women’s rights events and events supporting people getting treatment for drug addiction while living in Indiana.
Jared and his husband, Matthew, just celebrated their 4th anniversary, and are excited about building their lives in Polk County.
