2022 Top Forty Under 40 Mover & Shaker Honoree:
Jeszack Gammon’s family hails from Jamaica, he grew up in Brooklyn and he attended Bard College and SUNY New Paltz. He is a program coordinator for Brothers@, a nonprofit organization that specializes in dual-beneficiary high-school retention and college persistence. The organization’s mission is to improve the academic and social-emotional outcomes of YMOC in both secondary and post-secondary education. “The field of mentorship was a passion I found while engaging as a volunteer during my undergraduate career,” Jeszack said. “The program coordinator position opened up, and due to my experience working as a mentor for four years, I was best suited to take on this position. “The personal growth that happens in the process is truly a dual-beneficiary experience, for me, as well. I hope to continue to affect the lives of young men who look like me while creating a sustainable music career where I use my artistry to reflect on the life experiences of others, and myself while challenging my community to do the same.”
