Jess De Campo (she/her)

Our Town Lead

Working on Peramangk and Kaurna Lands

A teacher by training, Jess combines her experience in the education sector, youth justice, and policy and research to improve outcomes for people with social challenges.

A natural listener, Jess loves working with people who have had unique life experiences to get their input and insights. She loves asking questions and trying to understand other people’s perspectives, and hopes her time at TACSI will allow her to play a role in supporting people to have their voices heard and acted on by decision makers.

Jess is currently the Lead of the Our Town initiative, working with South Australian towns on community led wellbeing. 

When she’s not at work, you’ll find Jess spending her time with her kids, wrangling the five acre garden on her Adelaide Hills property, and listening to podcasts.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and Owners of the lands in which we work and live on across Australia. We pay our respects to Elders of the past, present and emerging. We are committed to collaboration that furthers self-determination and creates a better future for all.

At TACSI, diversity and inclusion is more than a statement; equality and accessibility are guiding principles embedded in everything we do. We strongly believe that it’s the collective sum of all our communities differences, life experiences, and knowledge that enables both ourselves and our partners to come together to tackle complex social issues. That’s why we’re committed to having a diverse team made up of people with diverse skills from all backgrounds, including First Nations peoples, LGBTIQ+, mature-age people, and people with visible and non-visible disabilities, regardless of sex, sexuality or gender identity.
