About

Jackie Ortiz (she/they) is a multi-hyphenate leader, thinker, and community builder who keeps DEIA at the center of all her work. A native Chicagoan currently based in Pasadena, California, Jackie is currently the social media manager at Blurb. She's also severely uncomfortable talking in the third-person, so let's just stop that part here 😉.

Storytelling is my bread and butter, and community is my cornerstone. With 10+ years experience in elevating brand platforms, creating integrated marketing campaigns, and conceptualizing social ideas, I've connected artists, small businesses, and personal brands to a wider audience. My strength is versatility, and it is through this that I've been able to work on projects ranging from arts & entertainment, to SaaS & tech, to food & beverage. I've produced live events, executed digital and social campaigns, and managed communities with the sole intention of telling genuine, human stories. 

When I'm not slanging social and building community, you can find me on the hunt for the perfect cup of boba, at a pop-up for my Filipinx t-shirt company Sarap Tees, working on my camper van, sharing a meal with old & new friends, or making short-form video content

​I'm also in constant pursuit of immaculate vibes 🤌🏽 – some of which you can catch here.
