Jean Peters Baker, Public Official

Prosecutor • Jackson County

In 2011, Jean Peters Baker became just the second woman to lead the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office. It’s the culmination of a career spent fighting for victims of sex crimes, busting drug houses and seeking justice in the Kansas City area. Her service in the prosecutor’s office began in 1996, working for a former prosecutor, Claire McCaskill. Being a prosecutor means having a thick skin, a tough resolve and occasionally a gentle touch — skills she honed through political involvement, including a stint in the Missouri House.
