Juan Pablo Jaramillo is the son of hard-working janitors that came to America to escape violence in Colombia. Because of their sacrifices, Juan earned a Bachelor’s degree from UMass Boston, and while in school, he joined his parents as a janitor cleaning intensive care units at Mass General Hospital.
After graduating, Juan dedicated his career to public service, from interning
with Speaker Bob DeLeo’s office to serving as Budget Director for State Senator
Joseph Boncore. As Budget Director, he secured millions of dollars for Winthrop and Revere, from housing to public transportation to health care.
Juan currently mentors youth as a Pop Warner football coach and works to represent frontline workers at SEIU 32BJ. He also worked to improve and professionalize city services as the Chief Administrative Officer in the City of Lawrence where he helped expand child care services and vaccine accessibility to working families.
Juan and his wife are homeowners in Revere where they live with their year-old son.
