Jeremy Kadden

Major Gifts Officer

Jeremy recognizes that building strong relationships is key to build strong communities. Throughout his career, he has devoted significant time and energy to building relationships with policymakers, a key skill set that he brings to his role at 2Life Communities. A recent arrival in the Bay State, Jeremy spent nearly two decades in Washington, D.C., including seven years on Capitol Hill advising members of Congress from both parties on foreign policy, human rights, and immigration. He also worked as a lobbyist for InterAction, a coalition of international non-governmental organizations, and for the Human Rights Campaign, where he advocated for the rights of LGBTQ people around the globe. 

Jeremy has served on the board of the DC Minyan, an independent, lay-led Jewish community located in the heart of downtown Washington, where he still serves as the cantor for the High Holidays. He has a bachelor’s degree in history from Columbia University and a master’s in international relations from Cambridge University. 


“I find joy in walking around one of our campuses and seeing groups of residents sitting together and talking, gardening, laughing, or playing. It makes my day so much brighter.”
