This summer, the Tucson J community welcomed a familiar face in a new and exciting role: Davis Hubbell, a native of Tucson and an alum of Tucson J programs, was appointed as the J’s new Director of Teen Engagement. With a rich tapestry of experiences spanning from artisan bakeries in Vail, CO., and San Diego to working with the esteemed JW brand of Marriott, Hubbell’s multifaceted journey now circles back to his hometown and his Jewish roots, highlighting his commitment to the community. A native Tucsonan, Hubbell’s relationship with the city’s Jewish community began in his infancy, attending JCC programs as young as 2 months old and continuing through to 6th grade.
Hubbell made his debut at the J as the unit head for Camp J’s Tiyul teen program this summer and with school back in session, assumed the position of Tucson’s BBYO City Director, merging his passion for community service with his deep-seated connection to Jewish traditions and values. Drawing from his transformative experience with Taglit Birthright Israel at 25, Hubbell recognizes the importance of instilling a sense of heritage and identity among Jewish youths. “It’s about creating nurturing environments where our youth can forge meaningful connections, grow, and thrive,” said Hubbell.
