Jerry Kaufman

Research and Evaluation Manager

A longtime friend of LCLC, Jerry joined the organization while finishing his PhD from The University of Chicago. Jerry has always been impressed by LCLC’s holistic, community-based, relational approach and its effort to change the way the system works for justice-involved youth. He wants to use his love for working with data and building relationships to make Chicago a more just and equitable city and is motivated by being a part of a community of people working together to change systems. Jerry enjoys reading, cooking, watching Chicago sports (except for the team on the North Side) and exploring all things Chicago with his wife, from food and coffee shops to music and art.
