OUR STAFF



 JESSE
EUBANKS

Jesse spent 7 years serving as the Director for Hope for Louisville – the precursor to Love Thy Neighborhood. Having raised over $2M in the last two years to help the homeless, Jesse launched LTN in January 2014, returning to his roots leading young adults to build relationships with people who are marginalized, serve with nonprofits and experience spiritual formation in Christ. He geeks out over Ira Glass and Tim Keller, loves listening to his wife Lindsay rap Salt-N-Pepa lyrics and wrestling with his son and daughter. Jesse & his family reside in the Poplar Level neighborhood.

She is an alumni of the Hope for Louisville program (where she met her husband who was a fellow Team Member). Before LTN, Kiana served as a Special Events Coordinator and Office Administrator for area nonprofits. Kiana has an obsession with organizational systems (“Look at all the pockets!”), sweats way too much when she exercises & enjoys laughing at the humor of her husband, Brad and son, Pax. Kiana and her family reside in the Shelby Park neighborhood.
