Chicago Program Manager
Having served for nearly a decade in the US Army and deploying twice in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Justin Miller separated from the service in January of 2013 and has been involved in the veteran network in and around the Chicagoland area ever since.
Justin is currently the Chicago Program Manager at Dog Tag Inc., managing the expansion of the fellowship program to the greater Chicagoland area. Dog Tag empowers veterans with service-connected disabilities, military spouses, and caregivers to find renewed purpose and community through its robust fellowship program.
Mr. Miller volunteers with Roll Call Chicagoland and has been a member of Roll Call’s Executive Committee since its inception in 2017. He was selected into the Communications Chair role in 2018 and has most recently been selected to serve as Vice Chair of Operations to further the organization's efforts of bringing together the military-connected community to cultivate a professional network in the Greater Chicagoland Area.
As a volunteer leader, Justin also serves his community as the Executive Director of SVA Illinois. In this role, Justin helps the organization find new ways to support and sustain student veterans through their education in Illinois and across the Midwest by way of new programs, growth strategies, and staff expansion.
When Justin isn’t giving back to his military and veteran-connected communities, he enjoys working on DIY projects at his home in the west suburbs of Chicago, watching Cubs games, and taking his family on weekend trips to Wisconsin and Michigan. He is an avid supporter and promoter of mental health, especially among veterans, and lives by two mottos: Try everything twice, and don’t sweat the small stuff!
Justin’s favorite baked goods are blondies and oatmeal cookies!
