Jared Kamrass’s journey into the realm of public service began with a spark of inspiration while watching “The West Wing” with his family and witnessing Barack Obama’s electrifying 2004 DNC Convention Speech in Boston. However, it was a diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma during college that reshaped his interests and compelled him to advocate for healthcare reform, driven by the profound impact of economic circumstances on health outcomes. Following remission, Jared dedicated himself to electing policymakers committed to ending these inequities.
After graduating from Ohio State University, Jared returned to his hometown of Cincinnati, where he managed local campaigns before founding Rivertown Strategies in 2013. Over eight years, Rivertown Strategies evolved into one of the premier full-service Democratic consulting firms in the Midwest, expanding its reach to several states, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, Oregon, and Florida. The firm’s expertise extended to advising candidate campaigns and independent expenditure committees.
In the midst of the unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Jared served as a Senior Advisor to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) during the 2020 election cycle. His invaluable guidance supported candidates and staff in some of the nation’s most fiercely contested districts, helping to preserve a Democratic majority despite the tumultuous circumstances.
Post-election, Jared Kamrass joined Technicolor Political as a Principal, where he serves as an ad maker and media consultant for a diverse range of clients, including national committees, gubernatorial candidates, congressional campaigns, and other statewide and local offices. Technicolor Political, as the largest majority Black-owned firm in the Democratic party, is dedicated to creating and placing content that challenges the conventions of traditional political advertising, capturing the attention of voters navigating multiple screens simultaneously.
The Jared Kamrass Scholarship for Public Service is not only a testament to Jared’s commitment to public service but also a manifestation of his desire to nurture future leaders who will bring about positive change in their communities. By offering this scholarship, he aims to empower and support those who share his passion for public service and possess the determination to make a difference.
Aspiring public servants across the United States are encouraged to seize this unique opportunity to receive financial support for their education and propel their ambitions of creating a more equitable and just society. The scholarship application period is open, and we look forward to receiving applications from dedicated individuals who aspire to follow in the footsteps of Jared Kamrass.
