Jerred Cook

District 5 Committeeperson

Michele and I moved our family to Metuchen over a decade ago, and it was the best move we have ever made. We live on Upland in District 5 in a wonderful neighborhood with the best neighbors we could ask for. We are heavily invested in our community and love everything about Metuchen. Our 2 kids both attend Edgar and enjoy many activities through the schools and with our Borough and Michele, is a teacher in Union County and has served as one of our Metuchen School District Board Members for many years.

I am very honored to have served as District 5 Democratic Committee Member for the past few years and also as our Democratic Committee Treasurer. I have coached my kids in baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, and I helped to run the Coder Dojo at our Metuchen Library for a few years. These past few years I have spent working with a few others to build our Metuchen Momentum Robotics Program in cooperation with the Metuchen School District Administration at both the High School and Edgar Middle School. I am also proud to be a member of our Metuchen Elks Lodge 1914. Many of you will also know me from the Metuchen Soccer Club as I have been deeply involved there for many years helping to run our Recreational Programs.

District 5 Committeeperson

My husband Ed and I have been proud residents of Metuchen for 50 years, and I worked in the Metuchen school system as a third grade teacher for 27 years. As a result, I have spent my days living and working in Metuchen and have been very much involved in its evolution over the years to see it become the desirable town it is today. Our children both attended Metuchen schools and presently my grandchildren are doing the same. Therefore my commitment to serving our community remains strong to ensure my grandchildren continue to experience the joy of living in such a special town.

As a teacher and parent I was one of the founding members of the Metuchen Education Foundation which continues to support our excellent school system. I have been involved in the PTO at all our schools over the years as well as being an active member of the Metuchen High School Booster Club.

As a District 5 Democratic Committee member I have been a part of the process that has made Metuchen such a thriving and desirable community, I am proud to be a part of an organization that supports our Democratic principles.
