Currently Vice Mayor of the City of Corona
Elected By-District | Lives in District 1
Jacque Casillas was elected to serve her hometown in 2018. She was born and raised in the historic downtown circle of Corona, attended local public schools and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of California, San Diego and a Masters degree in Public Policy from UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.
Jacque has dedicated her career to serving marginalized communities earning a reputation as an effective and collaborative leader. She got her start as a community organizer working with underrepresented communities to increase civic engagement. Since then, Jacque has led countywide Latino voter registration efforts, collaborated to establish screening and treatment for low-income mothers suffering from postpartum depression, and has spearheaded countless initiatives to ensure access to high-quality, non-judgmental reproductive health care regardless of income or immigration status.
Jacque is passionate about representation in local governance. In 2016, she managed the citizen-led effort to update the way Coronans vote for city council members to ensure every Coronan has a councilmember in their neighborhood. Since taking office, she established open office hours, developed the first-ever City Council Internship Program, and spearheaded the formation of an ad-hoc committee to establish term limits.
Jacque currently serves on the following Boards and Committees:
- Chair of Corona’s Finance, Legislation, & Economic Development Committee
- Vice Chair of the Bedford Coldwater Groundwater Sustainability Authority
- Director on the Western Riverside County Regional Conservation Authority
- Member of the Corona Census 2020 Complete Count Committee
- Member of the McKinley Grade Separation ad hoc committee
- Member of the City Council Term Limit ad hoc committee
- City Council Representative for Joint Schools Committee
Aside from policy, Jacque enjoys a good pun, group board games, and exploring local trails with her husband Zach and their black Labrador Retriever Xiao Mei.
