Jessica is a native Cincinnatian, living here almost her entire life with the exception of a few years in Columbus and a few years in New York City (arguably the best city; after Cincinnati of course). In New York City, Jessica was involved with an organization that mentored youth in Washington Heights that brought her passion to work alongside young men and women to light. When she moved home to Cincinnati to be closer to family and be a part of the change to flip this city, it did not take long to find Found Village and get involved. She quickly jumped into volunteering and serving the young men of Found Village and cultivated relationships that continue to flourish today. Married to her husband Kelvin in 2017, the two walked hand in hand in their journey with Found Village and eventually became a Godparent to one of the young men who has become part of their family. As Found Village has grown and continued to impact the city, Jessica and Kelvin have become advocates for the organization as well as the young men and women the organization serves.
Currently Jessica is leading the Found Village Advisory Board providing guidance, insight, and support to the organization and their Board of Directors. She is also a part time stay at home mom and part time Compliance Manager. Using the corporate developed skills and passion of loving on kids from being a mother, Jessica is able to offer structure and organization but also a nurturing hand to the organization and youth they serve. Her mission is the same as seven years ago when she moved home, to see God flip this city and be a part of this through organizations like Found Village and raising her family to love and help others.
