This expert is no longer a staff member at The Heritage Foundation.
A member of Heritage’s Membership Development Team, Jeffrey Stewart Trimbath worked closely with members who have made the decision to remember Heritage in their estate plans. He also lead a team of regional development staff who work with thousands of Heritage members across the country. In both capacities, he focused on explaining current and planned initiatives for advancing the organization’s mission: “To formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values and a strong national defense.”
Before joining Heritage in 2007, Trimbath served six years in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services during the Administration of President George W. Bush. Before that, he worked for several conservative public policy organizations in his home state of Pennsylvania.
He holds the master of divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Mass., and a bachelor’s degree from Messiah College in Grantham, Penn. An ordained Ruling Elder in the Presbyterian Church, Trimbath resides in Lititz, Penn., with his wife, Jill, and their three children, Sarah Elizabeth, Katherine Sophia and James Joseph.
