Jamar Cobb-Dennard is a campaign finance and communications professional, law student, businessman, and community leader.
Cobb-Dennard came to Indianapolis with a dream of opening a business and eventually serving the community through politics. As a sales and marketing expert, he routinely helped companies grow 40% in the first year of his engagements, and was a top 10 award-winning salesperson along the way.
Later, he fell in love with politics as a volunteer on the Kennedy for Indianapolis, Talley for Lawrence Township Trustee, and Gregg for Governor campaigns. Cobb-Dennard serves on the board for the City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works, is the vice president of the local and state chapters of the Indiana Democrat African American Caucus, and is a precinct committeeman.
Now, as an evening law student at the IU McKinney School of Law, Cobb-Dennard has committed his days to raising money to help African American’s find their way into public office by funding political training and campaigns.
Jamar is a fan of personal challenges and community leadership. He has walked on Fire with Tony Robbins, was part of breaking a Guinness World Record, and crossed the North American continent by bicycle. He led the Little Red Door Cancer Agency to host America’s largest Zumba class, and was instrumental in shutting down dangerous, ‘Club Industry’, in downtown Indianapolis.
Cobb-Dennard is a Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Series graduate, was recognized as a 2013 Emerging Leader by 100 Black Men, and is an Indianapolis Business Journal Forty-Under-40 award recipient.
