David Czehut

Czehut-headshot-crop.pngA resident of the Hamilton Park neighborhood in Ward E, David Czehut is a husband and father of one current – and one future—Jersey City Public School student. He has NJ public education in his blood: his mother recently retired after 40 years of teaching in NJ public schools and his father is a retired director of facilities for a NJ public school district. As a proud graduate of the NJ public school K-12 system, David is keenly aware of the transformative impact that his teachers, coaches and mentors had on him.  

He is a graduate of Princeton University and Columbia Business School. David moved to Jersey City with his wife in 2012 and has settled into Harsimus Cove with his family. When he’s not changing diapers or playing hide-n-seek, he works as a product manager for an e-commerce company.  

David is running for a one-year term for the Jersey City School Board and looks forward to helping his children’s hometown of Jersey City provide an excellent education to our next generation of leaders.
