Hello.

I’m a Chicago based charitable entrepreneur who  grew up in an Ohio trailer park. My proud blue collared parents worked hard to ensure  I had every opportunity, and they expected me to  seize every day to make myself a better person, and give back to others. 

Today, I am a founding partner at Glocal. As the CEO I spark the vision and help navigate our course. A 20 year veteran of community organizing, I began community organizing in Ukraine shortly after the fall of the USSR. I later founded Love Without Agenda which operates in 16 countries across the globe. I'm was an athlete at the University of Missouri and internationally as a track & field athlete. I'm a Lover of the Underdog. Mover of Mountains. Akron Kid. Global Nomad. 
 

While we've come a long way from that trailer park...the best is still ahead.

Jimmy Spencer Jr is an unstoppable advocate for people across the globe.”
