State of Georgia
Born and raised in Georgia, Senator Jon Ossoff serves as our Senior United States Senator.
Since his election, Sen. Ossoff has built bipartisanship in the Senate to achieve meaningful legislative results for Georgia — even in a divided Congress. In his first two years in office, Sen. Ossoff passed into law more standalone bills than any other freshman Senator.
Sen. Ossoff’s legislative achievements include laws to strengthen mental health services and public safety; to tackle the opioid epidemic; to investigate unsolved lynchings and Civil Rights murders; to strengthen mental health care services for veterans; and to fight corruption and improve security in U.S. prisons.
Sen. Ossoff has led bipartisan investigations that exposed the mistreatment of military families living in privatized housing; corruption in Federal prisons; the sexual assault of female inmates; and the medical mistreatment of women in Federal detention.
Sen. Ossoff has upgraded and strengthened health care facilities across Georgia, helped pass legislation that capped the cost of insulin for seniors at $35/month, and passed bipartisan legislation to protect our kids from online exploitation.
Sen. Ossoff has relentlessly championed Georgia’s economic development, passing legislation into law that has attracted thousands of advanced manufacturing jobs and billions of dollars of investment to Georgia.
Through the historic bipartisan infrastructure law, Sen. Ossoff is delivering an unprecedented expansion of broadband internet access; upgrading ports, airports, roads, bridges, and water infrastructure statewide; and investing in the resilience of Georgia’s coast to help local communities prepare for storm surge, coastal flooding, and tropical storms.
Focused on improving the lives of Georgia’s veterans, servicemembers, and military families, Sen. Ossoff has passed into law bipartisan legislation to expand veterans’ access to mental health care and to upgrade child development centers for military families and barracks for enlisted personnel. He also championed passage of historic legislation to strengthen VA health care for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.
Mentored by civil rights legend Congressman John Lewis, Sen. Ossoff previously led a small business that produced investigative journalism exposing war crimes, public corruption, human trafficking, and organized crime.
Sen. Ossoff lives with his wife, Dr. Alisha Kramer, and daughter, Eva Beth, in Atlanta.
