My name is Kateresa Lee. My role for SJYC is an Assistant Director/ Youth Parenting Educator-Coach. My personal Brand is Chief Executive Notary-Mobile Notary of Central Ohio Licensed and Bonded. My goal is to encourage youth, help educate youth/single moms to become successful parents and learn safe parenting strategies. My best achievements are working for politicians in franklin county, obtaining an Associates degree, Bachelor’s degree while going back for a Masters in the same year and raising my 2 beautiful girls. One fun fact about me is that I love traveling, trying different restaurants, and learning American Sign Language to sign with the deaf. My aspirations in life are to help make a change and make the best impression on many lives in the most positive way by giving a hand up to others.
My name is Isaiah Madison, 31, born on the Southside of Columbus. One of my biggest passions is to bring people together no matter the age, gender or background. Since I was 12 years old Culinary Arts has been another passion of mine and through hard work and a lot of hours at Cincinnati State Midwest Culinary Art School I was able to earn my Associates in Business Management and became a Certified Chef. Now I am the owner/operator of 2 companies and plan on continued success. Chef Zaatovn Private Chef Service’s is the head company and Lil Chef Culinary Kits is under the Chef Zaatovn umbrella. A lot happened in between time that made me who I am today. Throughout this journey with Stamp and Jones Youth Center I want to continue to grow and have a impact on the youth that will last a lifetime.
Hard work and dedication ~Nipsey Hussle
Founder & Executive Director
Every day women are breaking down barriers and rising in every field around the world. While growing up in a low-income urban community in Columbus, Ohio who suffered from a lack of resources, I hardly seen youth excel. Once I made the decision to shift my environment and improve my life, I received my Bachelor of Science in criminal justice at Central State University. I then realized I wanted more but not knowing what my future would entail, I furthered my education by pursing Master’s degree in administration of Justice from Texas Southern University. While successfully overcoming many obstacles throughout my professional and personal journey, it has strongly allowed me the opportunity to develop into the strong minded individual I am today. As a leader and youth advocate my ultimate goal is to continue to break boundaries not just for myself, but with hopes of creating paths for future youth who are striving to succeed regardless of their obstacles.
