Tamar Jackson

Member

Director of Community Engagement for WorkForce Central. I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Tacoma Washington. I grew up just like any other young black man in the 80’s a statistic. Raised in poverty by a single mother without my father, living in gang infested neighborhoods. I could have let that be my excuse to give up and accept the cards dealt to me, but I didn’t. I beat all of the expectations for me to fail. Rebuilding Hope sparked my interest once I realized what its mission was in this community, and for the community. I want to be able to assist in building a strong leadership foundation within the Rebuilding Hope organization which matches the values and the passion I carry into this community everyday allowing me to realize that without understanding and commitment we do more harm than good to those we are meant to serve.
