Sometimes an encore isn’t a pivot; it’s a culmination of a lifetime of experiences. Jesse Ogas epitomizes this encore stage. As the Executive Director of Social Responsibility and Community Affairs for Colorado’s 9News, Jesse brings insights and connections from over three decades of nonprofit leadership experience: as executive director of Firefly Autism, an accomplished fundraiser, and board member of numerous nonprofit organizations, including Colorado Aids Project, Tepeyac Community Health Center, Latina Safehouse, and the MSU Denver President’s Cabinet. And as an actor for Su Teatro, one of the country’s most prominent Latino theatres, Jesse is well able to tell the stories of those whose stories are frequently unheard.
