Jeffrey M. Zucker

Jeffrey M. Zucker is a serial entrepreneur whose endeavors include real estate, film production, cannabis, hospitality, and more. He serves as the Vice Chair of the Board of the Marijuana Policy Project and is a philanthropist in the areas of Drug Policy and Criminal Justice Reform, healthcare, and education.  Additionally, Jeffrey hosts the podcast People are the Answer where he interviews innovators in social impact.

Jeffrey was born and raised in Charleston, SC and currently lives in Denver, CO.
