Jesús Rubio was born in Huelva, Spain but has spent most of his life in Kennesaw, Georgia. With descendants in Spain and Colombia, Jesús was born into a melting pot of Hispanic customs and traditions that he would later utilize to create a life in public advocacy roles as a minority in Georgia.
Jesús is currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in Public Policy & Public Service at Arizona State University and earned a minor in Latin American Studies and a Business Certificate in Music and Entertainment Business while studying at Kennesaw State University. While at Kennesaw State, Jesús founded and became President of the Young Democrats at Kennesaw State University organization to create opportunities for students to engage with elected officials and candidates.
Jesús formerly worked with Congresswoman Lucy McBath’s district office in Sandy Springs, GA where he worked on constituent services and relations. There he helped plan and assist in the Congresswoman’s events in Georgia’s 6th congressional district and work on constituent correspondence.
As a CHCI Intern, he desires to continue on the path of Congressional office service and learn more about the legislative process while working in the United States Capitol.
