Jeetu gratefully values his current role as a fortunate opportunity to fully integrate his professional work with his personal values, to live his life’s purpose; and is impassioned to expand the bold vision of “school meals without borders” in Share Our Strength’s fight against child hunger. Jeetu has been living in Northern Virginia for over 30 years with his wife Madhavi who also works in the global non-profit space. Their two children – daughter, Mohini; and son, Kanha – are both in college. Jeetu and Madhavi run a small non-profit on the side form their own home and pocket, spreading spirituality of pure love through the practice of meditation every weekend!
