Commissioner of the Department of Planning and Development in Chicago from 1992 to 1995 (Source)

President and CEO of the Habitat Company, “a real estate firm with a massive stake in federally funded Chicago public housing projects” (source) including Grove Parc Plaza Apartments:

Grove Parc and several other prominent failures were developed and managed by Obama’s close friends and political supporters. Those people profited from the subsidies even as many of Obama’s constituents suffered. Tenants lost their homes; surrounding neighborhoods were blighted…Among those tied to Obama politically, personally, or professionally are:
Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to Obama’s presidential campaign and a member of his finance committee. Jarrett is the chief executive of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 until this winter and co-managed an even larger subsidized complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006, after city inspectors found widespread problems.

Coincidentally enough, Grove Parc — now targeted for demolition as a result of years of neglect by Obama’s developer friends — sits in the shadows of the proposed site of the city’s 2016 Olympic Stadium.(Source)
