Jonathan Welle

Executive Director, member of the board

Jonathan is a co-op and organizer passionate about closing the ownership gap in his hometown of Cleveland. He spent three years in corporate consulting, where he saw the power of ownership -- and the danger of ownership unaccountable to the people it affects. He worked on President Obama's 2012 campaign and as a Peace Corps volunteer. You can find him catching sunsets during runs at Cleveland's Edgewater Park.

She created a nonprofit called "Stirring the Pot" and a scratch kitchen catering business, Heavenly Delicious Heart and Soul Cuisine. In Collinwood, she's active with her church and the local youth sport league.
