Jonathan "JT" Wu
Founder & Executive Director
A proud Duluth, GA native, JT founded Preface with one goal in mind: helping children of all backgrounds gain access to the tools, resources, and mentorship necessary to achieve their American Dreams. As a child of immigrants, who were themselves scholarship graduates of the University of Mississippi, JT has witnessed firsthand the transformative impact that access to education can have on young lives and is passionate about fostering those opportunities in Gwinnett County - and beyond.
Following tenures with Citigroup and the U.S. State Department, he currently leads the Mergers, Acquisitions, and Policy Development team at National Spine and Pain Centers, primarily focused on improving access to lifesaving medications while enhancing interventional outcomes for patients suffering from chronic pain. In addition to Preface, JT serves on the board of the Alchemy Sky Foundation, a music-oriented support system for Georgia veterans, and sits on the Board of Trustees of the Gwinnett County Public Library. He has also been honored by YNPN Atlanta as one of its 2020 30 Under 30 Nonprofit Leaders.
An alumnus of the McCallie School, JT received an A.B. cum laude in Public Policy from Princeton University, along with dual certificates in Finance and East Asian Studies.
