Jacques Colon will begin overseeing Tacoma’s work in support of Tacoma 2025, a community-informed strategic vision and framework for Tacoma’s future. He previously served as the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department’s health equity coordinator for five years.
“It is a privilege to join the City of Tacoma at such a pivotal time,” said Colon. “Tacoma is well-positioned for tremendous growth and progress, and I look forward to working with the City’s departments and community partners on efforts to achieve our shared goals.”
“Jacques Colon brings to the table a demonstrated ability to build strong relationships, use data to inform decision making, and a professional track record that reflects the City’s values of integrity, service, equity and excellence,” said Media and Communications Director Tanisha Jumper. “We are pleased to welcome him to our team.”
Prior to moving to the Puget Sound region, Colon served as a middle school science teacher with Teach for America in his hometown of Miami, and as a policy analyst in Washington, D.C.
