David Jessup

David is the founder and chief executive officer of Digi-Bridge, a federally recognized Charlotte-based nonprofit working at the nexus of technology and education. The organization believes that the “digital divide”- a reality that affords only some students with the access needed in order to be successful in a global economy- is exacerbating the country’s educational achievement gap. Employing a three-pronged strategy to eradicate this divide, David oversees advocacy activities, consultancy efforts and educational course offerings carried out by Digi-Bridge.

As a former corps member with Teach For America, David brings his educational experience to the forefront in support of 21st century teaching and learning. David received a bachelor’s degree in political science and pre-law from The University of Central Florida and a master’s degree in non-profit management from the same institution.

In his free time, David practices yoga and enjoys consuming desserts at any time of day with family and friends.
