Jesse Brooks serves as the database manager at The Fund for American Studies (TFAS). Jesse was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, but has always loved Washington, D.C.
He began his college journey at George Mason University studying global affairs and Arabic. The time spent in northern Virginia helped familiarize him with the greater D.C. metro area and gave him the opportunity to intern with Congress for a semester.
Jesse graduated from Thomas Edison State University in 2017 with a degree in international studies. He meandered his way into the data field having worked as both a database administrator and data analyst in the past. He was ecstatic to find a role at TFAS that helped meld his loves for data and championing liberty.
In his free time Jesse likes to spend time with friends, read, teach, play and watch sports (go Eagles!), spend time outdoors, run, travel, and try new foods.
Though he can’t pick just one favorite book, some of his favorites include “Anna Karenina,” “The Old Man and the Sea,” “Proust Was a Neuroscientist,” “The Screwtape Letters,” and “Democracy in America.”
