Jared Kamrass, the visionary behind this scholarship, possesses an impressive background in political consulting and a deep commitment to public service. As a Principal at Technicolor Political, a leading full-service messaging and ad agency, Jared has provided strategic guidance to Democratic candidates, committees, and progressive causes nationwide. His political passion was ignited during his formative years while watching the TV series West Wing with his father and brother, and witnessing Barack Obama's inspiring 2004 DNC Convention Speech.
Jared's personal journey took a transformative turn when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma during his college years. This experience shifted his focus towards healthcare reform as he witnessed firsthand the impact of economic circumstances on health outcomes. After successfully overcoming cancer, Jared dedicated himself to electing policymakers who strive to eliminate such disparities.
Following his graduation from Ohio State University, Jared returned to his hometown of Cincinnati where he managed local campaigns before establishing Rivertown Strategies in 2013.

In the 2020 election cycle, Jared served as a Senior Advisor to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), offering invaluable guidance to candidates and staff in highly contested districts.

Following the election, Jared joined Technicolor Political as a Principal, where he continues to make a significant impact as an ad maker and media consultant. Technicolor Political, the largest majority Black-owned firm in the Democratic party, focuses on creating and placing content that breaks the mold of traditional political advertising, captivating voters who engage with multiple screens simultaneously.
