Meet the Director
Director, Florida Division of Emergency Management
Jared Moskowitz was appointed as Director of Florida’s Division of Emergency Management by Governor Ron DeSantis in January 2019. As former General Counsel and Vice President of Business Development for AshBritt Environmental, Jared brings more than a decade of experience in disaster recovery and response to the Division of Emergency Management. In that role, Jared supported response and recovery efforts in Florida after Hurricanes Irma, Matthew, Michael and Hermine. He also responded to the 2017 wildfires in California as well as to Superstorm Sandy, which struck the Northeastern United States in 2012.
Jared also served from 2012-2019 as State Representative for District 97, representing Coral Springs, Tamarac, Sunrise and Plantation. During his tenure in the Florida Legislature, Jared served on the House Select Committee on Hurricane Response and Preparedness, which was created in response to Hurricane Irma.
Jared’s foray into public service officially began in 2006, when he was elected at the age of 25 to the Parkland City Commission while he was a law student at the Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University.
Most recently, Jared has been a tireless advocate for school safety following last year’s tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. As the only Marjory Stoneman Douglas graduate serving in the Florida Legislature, Jared helped draft the bipartisan Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Safety Act, which was the first comprehensive mental health, school safety and gun control bill of its kind in over 20 years.
Jared and his wife, Leah, serve on the host committee for the 2nd Annual We Are Stoneman Douglas fundraising event for Parkland Cares, an organization providing immediate and long-term funding and awareness for mental health counseling for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting survivors, their families and the community-at-large.
Jared and his wife are proud parents to two adorable boys, Sam (6) and Max (3). Jared, who was raised in South Florida, is honored to serve Floridians and their local communities as Director of the Division of Emergency Management.
