Mark Jenssen is Director of Digital Strategy and Grassroots Mobilization at the Chamber of Progress. He has extensive digital experience across numerous sectors, most recently as Deputy Digital Director at NARAL Pro-choice America where he oversaw the development and execution of all digital campaigns – including email advocacy, fundraising, recruitment, advertising, and social media. Prior to that, Mark worked as a consultant with M+R, crafting digital campaigns for non-profit organizations in the reproductive and international rights sphere, as well as for environmental, cultural, health, and hunger groups.
Mark’s practical experience is bolstered by his research background that he developed while obtaining his Master’s in Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His studies were devoted to the effects of political narratives and misinformation on public opinion and policy. This focus on narratives stems from his education and experience in the film and television industries, through which Mark developed a unique ability to craft compelling stories that maximize reach and impact.
Mark currently lives in Washington, D.C. by way of Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and New York City. He enjoys travel and large-N datasets.
