Background

Jake is a junior studying PPE in the College. This proud New Yorker is also pursuing a French minor. Jake is on the Executive Board of the UA, and served as its Treasurer this year. Jake has been on the Undergraduate Assembly since freshman year. During sophomore year, Jake served as a Committee Director, specifically leading the Civic and Philadelphia Engagement Committee. You can see the results of his tenure here.  In addition to serving on the Undergraduate Assembly, Jake has had additional experience in student government as a SAC Exec member, where he works to fund all of your student groups. He also has had a seat on University Council for his three years at Penn, where he works closely with underrepresented student communities and Penn’s administration to better university life. Jake is involved with several campus organizations outside student government, including the Penn Democrats where he served as Vice President, Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity (Skulls), and PENNacle. When he’s not meeting with student groups or lobbying campus administrators, Jake can be found running on the Schuylkill, cooking, or hanging out with friends. The diverse and amazing people he has met at Penn motivate Jake, and he hopes to continue advocating for the needs of all students as UA President.

The most important thing to know about Jake is that he wants to know you as an individual and to ensure that you get the most out of your Penn experience. He will leverage his experience, relationships, and enthusiasm in order to lead the most productive, tangible and accessible UA in history, taking your student government in a new direction. If you have any questions or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact Jake at shuster@sas.upenn.edu. Or, if you’d rather meet in person, just say the word!
