Jesus Peralta

User Support Specialist

Jesus is a User Support Specialist on the IT Field Support Services Team.

Jesus’s IT journey started with Year Up in March 2021. There he attended classes for 6 months which led to a successful internship here at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. During the internship, he helped various teams which included the security, server, and field services teams.

His interest in computers and technology started at a young age. He always helped his parents when they had tv, cellphone, and computer problems. At 16 he built his first PC by following along to a YouTube video tutorial. The strong customer service background Jesus gained during his previous jobs and his eagerness and curiosity in the IT Field, were a big push to him being transitioned into a full-time employee here at HSPH.

Jesus grew up in the Boston area. In his free time, he enjoys watching scary movies, playing videogames, hanging out with his dog and cat, as well as being outdoors and exploring new places.
