Maria C. DeJesus

In her career as a great connector, Maria De Jesus began her work at Grand St. Settlement as the Executive Assistant to the Executive Director. Since then, she has succeeded to the position of Director of Human Resources, where she helps us live our mission to create a vibrant and diverse staff that reflects the voices and experiences of our communities.  In addition to overseeing agency compliance, benefits administration, and other functions for over 300 employees, she is known as the best event planner and party-thrower on the team. At Professional Development Days and holiday parties you can spot her even in a crowded room, identifiable by her beaming smile and sometimes sparkly festive attire.

She has a MBA from Dowling College School of Business and a BA from City College Center for Worker Education and Investments from Baruch. When she isn’t bringing development opportunities to Grand St. Settlement, Maria is often volunteering with her church and cultivating her spirituality.
