The Matthew Shepard Foundation is excited to announce that Jeff Mack will join the MSF team as Executive Vice President beginning August 31. Jeff will oversee the daily operations of the Foundation and is responsible for the mission-driven management and leadership of the organization.
Born in Chugwater, Wyoming, Jeff attended the University of Wyoming where he received a BS in Political Science. After graduating he became an admissions counselor and member of the LGBTQ+ group on campus, where he met Matthew Shepard.
Matt’s death has inspired Jeff to live a career of service to non-profits, and he has used his fundraising and leadership skills to positively impact a number of LGBTQ+ organizations. Jeff has held positions with the Human Rights Campaign, Outfest, Point Foundation, Red Cross, and the Kennedy Center. He comes to us from the University of Illinois Chicago, where he was Assistant Dean and Chief Advancement Officer for the College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts.
“We are thrilled to have Jeff join us on this journey to a world of compassion, equity and equality,” said Judy. “He brings not only knowledge and belief in our mission, but also a friendship shared with our Matt.”
Jeff is thrilled to return to Denver and carry-on Matt’s legacy. When he isn’t working, Jeff loves to travel and eat churros! His pride and joy are his two cats Piper and Oliver. Please join us in welcoming Jeff to the MSF family!
