Jake Hitch (he/him/his)
Director of Communication, Board of Directors
Jake Hitch, although born and raised in Northern Kentucky, has been a resident of Ohio since 2014, as a resident of downtown Cincinnati! A graduate of Campbell County High School, he attended Northern Kentucky University and graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Musical Theatre, with a Dance Minor. During his time at NKU, he was involved with a local LGBTQIA+ organization, NKY Equality Now, and volunteered with another former organization in our city- STOP AIDS CINCINNATI. Upon graduation, he spent some time residing in all different parts of the United States as a singer/dancer. He returned to Cincinnati at the end of 2013 and turned his part-time barista gig into a full-time career by pursuing a management career. He has served as a Communications Lead for his company's national internal Pride Network, supporting all of Middle-America, for the last two years.
He is a cat dad of three beautiful, chubby kids- Felicia, Mark, and Trish. In his spare time, he enjoys lifting weights, playing as many competitive sports as possible, eating carbs, and watching endless reruns of Friends and Will and Grace. He is also down to watch any sort of true-crime TV, or mostly any other reality tv.
He is overjoyed to be a part of Cincinnati Pride's Board of Directors, and he can't wait for everyone to see what is up their sleeves!
