Jim Obergefell

Jim Obergefell was born and raised in Sandusky, Ohio. The named plaintiff in the landmark case of Obergefell vs. Hodges, Jim is one of thirty-one plaintiffs in four consolidated cases but is seen as the ‘historic figure’ for marriage equality in his hometown of Cincinatti. A modest man, Obergefell calls himself an ‘accidental activist’.
