Sharon Reilly

Chief Development and Marketing Officer

Seven years after she served as Tri-State Region Executive Director for Jumpstart, Sharon Reilly returned to the organization in December of 2020 as chief development and marketing officer. In this capacity, Sharon ensures the people, partnerships, and systems across Jumpstart’s network are aligned to meet the organization’s fundraising goals, advance Jumpstart’s overall brand, and move the mission forward. An entrepreneurial and mission-driven leader, Sharon invested most of her professional career in Boston raising money and elevating the brand of organizations that were at a transformational moment. Her passion for Jumpstart’s mission is deeply rooted in both her personal lived experience and her belief in education as a powerful path to achieve equity. Before Jumpstart, Sharon served as the vice president of development at The Greater Boston Food Bank, where she led the most successful fundraising effort in the history of the organization. Prior to the Food Bank, Sharon held leadership roles at Cradles to Crayons and Women’s Lunch Place, leading successful fundraising campaigns at both organizations. Photo credit: Susan Symonds
