Current Committee

President: Robert Burleigh

RobertMr. President Robert J. Burleigh, DPhil candidate in Physical & Theoretical Chemistry, bears the responsibilities of:

  • Attending meetings with various college entities, speaking on behalf of the MCR
  • Distributing emails to the MCR that provide information on MCR policy, upcoming events, etc.
  • Organising President’s drinks
  • Chairing general meetings and committee meetings

Vice-PresidentArjun Jayaswal

162659_460202776734_3200243_nArjun is honoured to be your Vice-President and vows to carry out this role with the respect it deserves. He is passionate about tweaking the MCR voting system and improving the state of the ‘bunker’. With a strong environmental conscience, Arjun is well placed to take responsibility for the graduate contribution to the Student Switch Off, whilst also keeping a beady eye on any relevant OUSU happenings and reporting these in the MCR General Meetings.

Currently a Medical Sciences DPhil student, in his previous life Arjun worked in the Civil Service, and in his incarnation before that studied Physics at Imperial College & EPFL (Lausanne, SUI). He therefore hopes to use mathematical optimisation to maximise inclusivity and super fun times for all MCR members.

Arjun claims to have no spare time, but in fact can often be found playing Battleships or darts in the College bar, playing cricket for Jesus CC, watching cricket, talking politics and usually avoiding strenuous physical exercise. Arjun’s ultimate aim is – alongside world domination – organising suitably lavish End of Term events.

Feel free to contact me via email if you have any concerns, ideas, or feedback (good or bad :-p) about any of the above.

zobair mugshotTreasurer: Zobair Arya

I’m Zobair and I’m the MCR treasurer. My job is pretty simple; I look after the MCR’s accounts and make sure that we stay on budget. On a day-to-day basis my job consists of signing cheques for the other committee members to reimburse them for things that they’ve bought for the MCR. If you want to talk money then I’m the one to talk to.

Secretary: Thomas Chui

ThomasHi I’m Thomas, I am the MCR Secretary. I organise the MCR General Meetings, – the agenda, the minutes and the pre-meeting dinner for each meeting. Feel free to contact me if you would like to submit a motion or have a question about the MCR constitution. Additionally, I manage booking for the MCR Bunker, therefore drop me an email if you would like to book it for an event. Finally I handle applications for honorary membership of the MCR and I would be happy to answer questions on eligibility and the application process for MCR honorary membership.

Hi I’m Charlotte, your women’s welfare rep. I am available if home, college or academic life is getting you down – or you just want a chat! I am your point of contact for all things to do with your wellbeing including (but not limited to) free sexual health supplies. No problem is too small so don’t hesitate to get in touch with me or Guy via email or at one of the numerous college events. To see more about what we do and the services available in the Uni check the welfare section of the website and look out for our weekly emails.

Guy photoHello! I’m Guy Brindley, a 1st Year Classics DPhil and the MCR Men’s Welfare Officer.
Along with Char Walker, the Women’s Welfare Officer, I’m here to look out for the wellbeing of everyone in the MCR. This
includes a confidential service providing sexual health supplies and sanitary products, running a variety of enjoyable and informal Welfare events in the MCR, and offering a friendly ear if ever you’d like to talk!
I specifically am also in charge of the MCR locker scheme, so if you would like to arrange for a locker in college I’m the one to contact.
Please don’t hesitate to be in touch!

Di MCR photoComputing Rep: Di Hu

O hi Jesus MCR, Di IT here. I hope to make our website a beautiful thing, with impeccable clarity and informativeness. Do send me updates, photos, and epic moments of College&Oxford life, so that our Twitter, Facebook, and website can be decorated with exciting posts. Also, be sure to get in touch if ever you may encounter internet connection issues on any Jesus College grounds. Stay lovely, you incredibly cool&classy bunch. We’ll chill soon.

Sports Rep: Caitlin O’Brien

Caitlin MCR photoHi! As your MCR sports rep (a very prestigious title you know) I’m here for all things sports related, whether that be within the college or in the wider university teams. We have a huge array of sports teams in college which I’d encourage you to join and I can help you get in contact with the relevant team captains if needed. If you’re involved in sport on a more serious level and have any questions about the bursaries and benefits on offer from the college feel free to contact me. Meanwhile, I’ll be doing my best to incorporate sports into the MCR life at Jesus such as arranging fun taster sessions with some of the more ‘alternative’ sports on offer at Oxford.

I’ll also aim to keep everyone updated about any sporting events going on throughout the year so if you’d like me to (shamelessly) advertise your own Varsity match or Cuppers events then just get in contact.

First Year Reps
: Robert Quilan & Maurice Casey

Because so many students in Jesus MCR are only here for one year, we make sure they have representation on the committee by electing First Year Reps. Robert & Maurice organise elaborate Sunday Brunches, host cozy open mic nights, and help out the Social Secs. Screen Shot 2016-11-12 at 15.11.27
