Jeremy Cooper

Jeremy Cooper is a Nonprofit Management Fellow in RespectAbilitys National Leadership Program for Spring 2019. RespectAbility is a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities for and with people with disabilities. Cooper majored in History and minored in English at Oberlin College, where he received a BA, and currently is working on a Masters in Public Administration from American University, which he expects to receive in May 2019.

He joined RespectAbility out of a longstanding desire to work in disability and mental health advocacy, which stems from his experiences from growing up with a younger brother with autism. Cooper hopes to gain experience in fundraising, development and advocacy at RespectAbility, in order to help raise awareness for the symptoms, treatment and equal rights of children and adults with disabilities.

Prior to joining RespectAbility, Cooper spent the past year interning at other nonprofits. These experiences include the Fairness Project, which campaigns to pass legislative votes that expand Medicaid, and Arlington Thrive, which provides emergency funds to people in need. Before college, Cooper also had several internships at Melmark, a nonprofit care facility that provides residential and educational services to children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities.

Cooper is an avid history enthusiast. As far as hes concerned, no one can learn enough from it, such as reading about how the Civil War or World War 2 shaped modern America. Cooper is also an avid consumer of books and movies, with a taste that varies across the spectrum, from Shakespeare to Agatha Christie, and from The Godfather to Indiana Jones. He hopes to put all of that reading to good use in writing reports for the Development Team.
