City of Chicago announced that Jaye Stapleton will serve as the City of Chicago’s Deputy Mayor for Education and Human Services. Stapleton brings nearly 15 years of experience working with communities locally and internationally. She is a dedicated public servant with a commitment to ensuring that Chicago residents and families have access to the essential services that are needed to thrive. Prior to becoming Deputy Mayor for Education and Human Services, Stapleton joined Mayor Lightfoot’s administration in September 2020 as the Director of Social Services Policy, and her diligent work allowed her the opportunity to grow into her most recent role as Senior Director of Social Services Policy early in 2021. Some of her accomplishments are co-leading the Mayor’s Office of Education and Human Services team, where she worked closely with the Chicago Department of Public Health, Department of Family and Support Services, and the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities to drive coordination and collaboration on joint initiatives and improve the quality, equitable delivery, and scale of human service and public health programs citywide. Stapleton also guided and supported a select number of multi-year signature strategic initiatives, including Healthy Chicago 2025, the City’s Mental Health Equity Framework, homelessness reduction, the City’s Food Equity Agenda, 211 Metro Chicago, the Chicago Resilient Communities Pilot, coordinated workforce development, and violence prevention programs.
