Jaime Glasser is a Downtown Mesa artist and is working to make Downtown Mesa a great place to live, work and play through community activation. She is working to establish a non profit Mesa heART Studio to foster an inclusive community through the arts in Downtown Mesa and volunteers on the City of Mesa Parks and Recreation Citizen Advisory Board, the Mesa Urban Garden and R.A.I.L. Mesa CDC. Jaime was a triathlete in the past and a veterinarian. She left her practice 15 years ago due to illness. Jaime lives in the Second Street Historical District in Downtown Mesa and has cheered her friends and visitors every year along the Phoenix Marathon Course since it has been run through her neighborhood.
She is determined to return to running by running the half at the 2018 Mesa Phoenix Marathon to celebrate her 60th Birthday and gratitude for life in her beautiful hometown.
