Waterside Class of 2009

Jadon Washington

St. John's University

  • When Jadon Washington received the great news that he’d been hired at Tropic, a software procurement company based in New York City, his first email was to Waterside School. “Waterside is such an important piece of the village that raised me. I am honored to have had that privilege growing up, and I hope to continue making everyone proud going forward,” he wrote. At Tropic, Jadon works as a business development representative, helping tech-forward companies procure software in a more affordable and efficient way. The best part of the job? “I love learning about how companies are grown from the ground up,” Jadon says. “It’s an incredible opportunity, and I’m not wasting a single minute of it.”
