Press Release

Today, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley announced that his Chief of Staff of seven years, Juan Hinojosa, will depart the office at the end of the month and long-time D.C. aide, Allison Jarus will move into the Chief of Staff role. In addition, Max Frankel has been promoted to Legislative Director.

After more than 13 years in public service between the House and Senate, Juan Hinojosa, Quigley’s outgoing Chief of Staff will join American Airlines as Managing Director of Government Relations.

“The people of the fifth district of Illinois were well served by Juan’s years leading my office,” said Quigley. “American Airlines clearly recognized his deep expertise working on transportation policy and made a great hire. Juan is well respected on Capitol Hill by both staff and members for his command of the issues and his political acumen. American Airlines is lucky to have him and I'm glad his skills will continue to benefit Chicago and our country."

Allison Jarus is a seasoned public policy professional with eight years of Capitol Hill experience. As Quigley’s Legislative Director, she led an active policy team while managing the health care, national security, foreign affairs, and intelligence portfolio. Prior to joining Quigley’s office, she served as Legislative Assistant for Representative Marcy Kaptur of Ohio.

“I am thrilled to announce Allison’s promotion to serve as my next Chief of Staff. She has worked tirelessly on behalf of the people of Illinois for several years now and will continue to put her policy expertise and political know-how to good use as she leads my office in our mission to fight for my constituents every single day,” said Quigley.

Additionally, Quigley’s Senior Policy Advisor, Max Frankel, will be promoted to Legislative Director to lead the Washington, D.C. policy team. Frankel has been a trusted advisor to Quigley for more than four years, managing a policy portfolio that includes energy, environment, climate, transportation, and science and technology. Prior to joining Quigley’s office, he worked for World Resources Institute.
