Name: Jakob Ocasio | Position: Quality Assurance Specialist | Location: New York, NY

Tell us a little about yourself!

I have experience overseeing the day-to-day operations of issue-based and ballot-access campaigns. I am a recent college graduate with a double major in Political Science and English Literature. I graduated with honors and completed my degree in less than three years. I am very interested in progressive advocacy.

Where are you based right now and what’s your favorite thing to do in your city?

I am based in New York City, and I enjoy trying all of the great cuisines in New York.

What have you enjoyed most about SpeakEasy so far?

I have really enjoyed working with a team of talented professionals who support Democratic candidates and causes. The team is dedicated to expanding ad tech and direct mail services to many campaigns that might otherwise have been excluded from the political process.

Midterms are approaching soon — what are you most excited for? Is there anything you’re doing to prepare?

I am excited to support progressive and Democratic candidates and causes during this upcoming election cycle. The stakes have arguably never been higher.

What’s something most people don’t know about you? Fun Facts!

I am fascinated by studying 19th-Century American literature, critical race theory, and gender theory. I would like to pursue a PhD in English Literature at some point in my life.

What’re you currently listening to?

I am not currently listening to anything in particular, but I have been reading a lot of racial justice literature.
