Jaden Lessnick
Vice PresidentHometown: Columbus, OH
I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, so I have a particular appreciation for the size and robustness of UChicago's Jewish community! I graduated in 2020 from Emory University with a degree in Political Science, and am a rising 2L at the Law School. I'm most excited about extending JLSA's reach beyond the Law School and collaborating with other Jewish groups at UChicago and beyond.
Elena Prieto
PresidentHometown: Clearwater, Florida
Originally from Clearwater, Florida, my childhood revolved around Jewish involvement in our small but strong Jewish community - from day school to summer camp to youth group. Before beginning at the University of Pennsylvania, I participated on Young Judaea's Year Course gap year program in Israel. At Penn I really found comfort in the Jewish community there and am looking forward to building a similar environment at the University of Chicago Law School! As a rising 2L, I can't wait to invite new people into our community, as well as strengthen the relationships that have already started to form.
