MAP of District 16


Jeff has tirelessly worked on neighborhood and community issues in and around the city of Indianapolis for many years, focusing on quality of life needs and concerns. He is a proud recipient of the 2010 "Mayor’s Community Service Award".

Jeff moved to Indianapolis on the north side in 1990 and took a big step at the end of 1996 to rehab an 1874 historic Italianate home in downtown Fletcher Place that had been boarded up for 20 years. He soon joined the board of his association serving for 11 years in roles ranging from secretary, zoning, webmaster, economic development, and president.

Wanting to serve more than just his neighborhood Jeff got involved with Historic Urban Neighborhoods of Indianapolis, which brought together representatives from member neighborhoods to share and collaborate ideas. He served as president for three years.

Extending his reach further, he joined the Southeast Neighborhood Development Board, serving for six years. He chaired the Public Space Committee, which sought to beautify the area, address infrastructure issues, perform master planning, and to promote greenway usage and the arts. He received the “Board Member of the Year Award” in 2008.

A strong passion for Jeff is infrastructure, and as part of the Public Space Committee, he collaborated with Great Indy Neighborhoods, IUPUI, and the Department of Public Works to help develop an infrastructure assessment tool which has been used to assess more than 1,600 street and sidewalk blocks, allowing greater advocacy for repairs by neighborhoods and Community Development Centers.

Jeff has held annual leadership summits since 2011 with the presidents of the neighborhood associations in his district and is seen as proactive in addressing the key issues that impact residents, especially in the areas of infrastructure, abandoned housing, crime, absentee landlords, and beautification.

Jeff was elected to represent the near southeast, south and southwest sides of Indianapolis to the Marion County/Indianapolis City County Council in November 2011 and re-elected in 2015. His district includes neighborhoods such as Fountain Square on the east side, the Old Southside near Meridian, and Mars Hill on the west side.  His district also includes IUPUI and UIndy, as well as the White River State Park.

The City/County Council is the chief legislative body for the City of Indianapolis and Jeff has supported legislation to address graffiti, metal theft, landlord accountability, foreclosed home maintenance, early education program funding, public safety funding, and other quality of life issues impacting his district.  Jeff has served on the Metropolitan and Economic Development, Public Works, Community Affairs, and Ethics committees. He is also on the boards of Southeast Community Services, Renew Indianapolis (the city’s land bank), Indiana Recycling Coalition, and the Indy Food Council, as well as serving on the Keep Indianapolis Beautiful Adopt-A-Block Steering Committee.

Jeff has worked for 25+ years in the IT consulting industry. In his previous job at the local firm Aprimo, he served for many years as the chairman of Team Aprimo Serving Community (TASC), where he planned company philanthropy events benefiting charities including: Children’s Wish Fund, Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Research, United Way Backpack Attack, Light the Night for Leukemia, and Junior Achievement. He received the Aprimo Core Value Award for “Commitment to the highest standards of integrity & ethics” in 2008 and “Responsibility for service & philanthropy in the community” in 2003.

In 2011, Jeff lost his beloved wife of 11 years Carolyn to leukemia. He and his son Gabriel love living downtown in historic Fletcher Place. They attend the Fletcher Place Church and enjoy serving the community with fellow members.
