Jared N. Klein, is an attorney with the firm of Orphanides & Toner LLP. He shared with us that he is, “a lifelong resident of Philly” and currently lives in the Passyunk Square area where he is “the President of the Passyunk Square Civic Association.” Jared grew up in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia and, after leaving for Baltimore to get his undergraduate degree at Johns Hopkins, he returned to Philly for law school at Temple where he graduated in 2004.
Jared is driven, and that level of commitment and professionalism is often motivated by something deeper. When asked about this, Jared is able to draw it back to his deep “love for the City” he grew up in.
Everyone who contributes to the work of Raza Properties and affiliate companies brings something unique and noteworthy to the table.
In Jared’s case, he recognizes that “as a lifelong Philly resident and active participant in my own community association,” he understands how “important it is to involve the community as a partner in development opportunities.” With that, “I bring deep appreciation and understanding of community engagement to every Raza Properties development opportunity I am involved with.”
Like most hardworking folks affiliated with Raza Properties time off isn’t something they come by often, but once we explained what time off meant Jared shared that he enjoys spending quality time with his wife Kelly and 3 year old son Sammy (who, Jared notes, shares his love for the Sixers and an appreciation of the Process).
Of course, as a lifelong resident we need to know a Philly food favorite and when it comes to cheesesteaks he’s a proud supporter of Johns Roast Pork.
Raza Properties is grateful for the expertise and value that Jared contributes and looks forward to many more years partnering together in the revitalization of Philadelphia.
