Jamaica Reese-Julien has been behind the scenes of some of our projects for the past year, but is coming back as a full-time agent for the summer!
She has primarily been working on the Jersey City Open Space Plan, creating and visualizing recommendations for park improvements. She has also developed graphics for public workshops that highlight the open space system elements, and how residents interact with them. She helped craft our engagement strategy and launch our Jacksonville Riverfront competition. She is currently pursuing a dual degree in Urban Planning and Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, with a concentration in Community and Economic Development. She wants to build public spaces that center communities, build equity, and are fun and engaging! Even though she is a remote agent, Jamaica was able to explore some sites in Jersey City earlier this year with the team.
Join us in re-welcoming Jamaica!
