Jason Yun, “Jay”, is the Community Manager at Zimride, a revolutionary ridesharing service in sunny but cold San Francisco. A veteran of community, Jay started in the health sciences to become a published diabetes and cancer researcher at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. After transitioning away from the medical world, Jay has refocused his passion for working with people by joining Zimride to help grow and foster their community. In addition to Zimride, he is also involved with Lyft, Zimride’s newest on-demand ridesharing service in San Francisco. Jay has a history in social justice and has worked with the National Conference For Community & Justice in addition to being heavily involved in the minority leadership representation at Whittier College. When not disrupting transportation, Jay and his partner love to do all things geeky. Most importantly, he’s always down to give people fist-bumps (the universal Lyft greeting).
