    “Juan Ciscomani grew up in Tucson, AZ. He graduated from Pima Community College and the University of Arizona. Upon graduation, Juan was one of twenty scholars in the United States selected by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute to participate in their Public Policy Fellowship Program in Washington, DC. Returning to Tucson, Juan has led the University of Arizona Take Charge America Institute’s outreach and youth financial literacy efforts since 2006. 

    In 2008, Juan stood as candidate for the Arizona House of Representative (LD 29) . Despite not winning the election, Juan is even more energized to continue his civic leadership.  He completed the Greater Tucson Leadership 10-week course in the Spring of 2009 and the Flinn-Brown Civic Leadership Academy Fellowship in the Inaugural class of Spring 2011.  Juan was appointed by Governor Brewer to the Arizona Civic Rights Advisory Board in 2012 where he now serves as Vice Chairman and more recently to the Pima County Commission on Trial Court Appointments.  

    Juan is looking forward to helping businesses grow in his role as Vice President of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.  In addition, Juan is on the board of directors of the Torch of Freedom Foundation that hosts Patriot Academy.  Arizona recently hosted the first expansion of Patriot Academy to the Southwest.  Married to Laura, they have Zoe (5), Juan Jr. (3) and Kenneth (10 months)”.
