陳介飛是所謂的ABC(American Born Chinese)，父母來自台灣，他的父母諄諄教誨回饋社區社會的重要性，他念茲在茲、身體力行，一路走來，人緣、人脈逐步累積。正直、陽光、積極、熱誠的陳介飛是民主黨員、哈佛大學畢業生，這回投入本屆國會眾議員選舉南加州選區(第39區)，選區內30％是亞裔、30％的拉丁裔，他極有可能在11/6的選舉中獲勝，而將來到華府國會履任眾議員要職。
身為哈岡公立學校系統所培育出來的高材生、領導者，陳介飛不僅追求個人的美國夢，更是努力地為整體社區追求更深更廣的美國大夢。在哈岡威爾遜高中(Glen A. Wilson High School)及哈佛大學(Harvard University) 社會學系(副修拉丁美洲研究)以優異的成績畢業後，陳被一家知名的環球顧問公司所聘用，期間，他曾幫助財星雜誌500強 (Fortune 500)企業策劃執行，解決許多複雜的企業難題。
身為台灣移民之子，陳介飛深受父母言教與身教的影響，使他工作之餘，努力回饋社區；他曾就任拉朋地谷區就職計劃管理委員會主席，並擔任老巴沙迪那管理區與聖蓋博谷YMCA的管理委員，同時也是亞太裔國會研究會管理委員及亞太學區會員協會主席。正是這股堅定信念與無私付出，陳介飛於2007年以破紀錄的票數首度當選哈仙達-拉朋地(Hacienda-La Puente)教委，並於2011年高票連任，也使他成功地得到同僚們的信賴並當選了教委主席(President of the School Board)。在教委主席任內，陳介飛對社區的職訓培育，提升社區投資環境，以及促進公民投入社區活動有著高度的熱忱。他將「學子入大學」設為優先目標，舉辦免費申請大學講座，令上千名學生與家長受益匪淺，並在學區內的所有高中舉行免費的SAT準備班。陳介飛同時也是職業培訓的強力支持者，在他任內，學區增加了20%以上的職訓課程，包括數位動畫與廚藝在內。
在陳介飛的領導與財務管理下，學區內的成員為維護教室教學的有效運作而團結一致，在加州不景氣的大環境下，哈仙達-拉朋地學區是極少數「教職員零裁員及不放無薪假」的學區，並成功地讓學區達到每年提升學術表現指標 (Academic Performance Index, API)的目標，且超越加州政府所設定的學術目標。在競爭激烈的全球化時代中，陳介飛念茲在茲，為確保學區內的孩子能受到最好的教育而努力不懈。

In the November 6, 2012 elections, he will face Republican Ed Royce, a 19-year incumbent, who has rejected common sense values for partisan politics.
A proud product of Hacienda Heights public schools, Jay Chen has been working hard to achieve the American dream not just for himself, but also for his community. After graduating with honors from Harvard University, he was recruited by a leading consulting firm to advise American companies on how to solve their most complex business problems.
Jay moved on to build his own small business, investing and managing real estate in Southern California. He continues to serve his country as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve and speaks fluent Mandarin and Spanish.
Jay was elected twice by his neighbors to serve on the Hacienda-La Puente School Board, and was elected president by his colleagues. During his time on the school board, he made college accessibility a priority and developed a free college application forum. Under Jay’s leadership and strong fiscal management, his district was one of the few in the state to have zero layoffs or furloughs of K-12 teaching staff during the recession.
Jay is deeply vested in the civic institutions that train workers, enhance the business climate, and improve citizenship. He served as President of the Board for the La Puente Valley Regional Occupation Program, and sits on the boards of the Old Pasadena Management District and the San Gabriel Valley YMCA. He is also a board member of the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies and President of the Asian Pacific Islander School Board Member Association. Jay is married to Karen Chang, who is a program analyst at the California Science Center.
