Jake Peterson is a Case Manager at Zimmer Law Group. He graduated from the University of Minnesota with Bachelors of Arts in both Spanish Studies and Cultural Studies, as well as a minor in African American Studies. By studying abroad in Toledo, Spain, he profoundly increased his passion and understanding for the Spanish language and culture.
Before ZLG, Jake worked in various non-profits organizations around the Twin Cities, ranging from administering a low-income housing program, preparing and teaching ESL curricula, and offering free employment coaching services. Notably, he completed a year of AmeriCorps service at Comunidades Latinas Unidas en Servicio (CLUES), a Latino non-profit organization based in the Twin-Cities. Here, Jake was able to expand further on his Spanish language skills as well as gain an in-depth awareness of many of the issues that Latino populations face throughout Minneapolis and Saint Paul.
In his free time, Jake likes to read, listen to music, watch films, play videogames and spend time outside. He loves hanging out with his family, especially taking care of his nieces and nephews.
