Zac is a third generation Baltimorean, attending Barclay Elementary School, Winston Middle School, and Northern High School. Zac Dingle’s high school athletic prowess earned him an athletic scholarship to attend Norfolk State University. Immediately following his freshman year, Zac joined the United States Army Reserve. During that same summer, Zac transferred to Delaware State University to be closer to his ailing paternal grandmother in Baltimore. While at Delaware State University, Zac began to develop the necessary skills and strategies to follow in his father’s footsteps in the continued service of the city of Baltimore. As part of Zac’s senior capstone, he developed a youth-focused social work program that eventually would serve as the foundation for the creation of his agency. Immediately upon completing his undergraduate studies in 1994, he returned to his pride and joy---Baltimore ---the only place he had ever called home---- to do the work that is his life’s calling.
By 1999, Zac formed what has become among the leading human services agencies in Maryland, Jumoke, Inc. For the past twenty-years, Jumoke, Inc. has been deliberate in working with children and families who have been underserved, cast aside, and literally forgotten. During the same time, he’s employed hundreds of Baltimoreans, ensuring them a livable wage and the ability to purchase homes right here in Baltimore City and to live full lives.
