Jesse Iliff

Executive Director

Jesse grew up along the banks of the Severn River and by high school knew he would devote his professional life to clean water. To that end, Jesse earned his juris doctor with a concentration in environmental law from the University of Maryland School of Law in 2010. After practicing litigation in state and federal court for five years, Jesse took a position as Riverkeeper for the South River, which he held for over six years before coming back home to protect the Severn at SRA. He is married with two children and when he isn’t working for the river, he is playing in it – kayaking, crabbing, swimming, or just sitting and listening to the waves with his family.
