I’m Jesse – co-founder of Care Staffing Professionals.
With the well being of your organization at stake, we want to get your needs right.
Jesus Andrade is co-founder of Care Staffing Professionals and served as the Chief Executive Officer. Born and raised in rural Merced, his upbringing in the agriculture industry allowed him to observe firsthand how the power of a community can be harnessed to feed the nation. The main crops harvested and distributed by his family included tomatoes, peppers, and almonds. Once he was of age, he played an active role in managing the family’s staffing and operational needs.
Mr. Andrade earned a degree in Animal Science and General Agriculture from Merced College. Shortly after completing schooling he moved to southern California to obtain his Masters of Business Administration. Prior to joining the Lampkin Foundation, Mr. Andrade worked for several staffing agencies throughout Orange and San Bernardino Counties. As he developed his knowledge of the staffing industry, he saw the greatest need in the healthcare field. That experience, combined with his studies in business administration and human resources equipped him for work with major hospital management companies in the United States.
Jesus’s personal interest is driven by his personal background and passion for quality community services and resources. Aside from serving as the CEO, he also serves as Executive Director of the Lampkin Foundation and was appointed for a second year to the Developing Neighborhood Agriculture (DNA) Initiative Committee Chair position. Mr. Andrade is passionate about staff development, mathematics, community relations, organizational theory and behavior, social innovation and entrepreneurship, architecture – and Mexican food.
