Partnerships Manager, Discovery Education
Widener University, BS, MPA
Jeff Flynn, a Voorhees, NJ native, is currently serving as Partnerships Manager with Discovery Education, a division of Discovery Communications—the #1 nonfiction media organization in the world. In his current role, Jeff is a thought leader with public schools and districts as they continue to shift from a print-to-digital environment in their classrooms, engaging students with rigorous and captivating content that inspires their curiosity about the world around them.
In 2004, Jeff joined the university advancement team at Widener for 2-years, prior to joining the University of Pennsylvania’s development team for 2 years beginning in 2006. Following his time at Penn, he joined Educational Services of America (ESA) and served as Vice President of Business Development. While at ESA, Jeff was responsible for building partnerships with school districts to support their alternative education efforts for students that were struggling to find success in their traditional school environments. As a result of these ongoing partnerships, many students in the Philadelphia area have graduated high school and moved on to college or the workforce.
Jeff currently resides in South Philadelphia with his wife Sarah, and they truly enjoy all the city has to offer.
