I have known Jess for over 10 years. Most recently, I have had the privilege of working with Jess as she served as a Program Coordinator for Leadership Development and then as the Assistant Director for Student Government at Colorado State University’s Student Leadership, Involvement & Community Engagement office in the Lory Student Center. She is an absolute delight, and I consider myself quite lucky to work with her. Jess is an incredible person with many outstanding qualities. Outspoken, confident, intelligent, dedicated, and armed with a wonderful sense of humor, she simply excels at being a person.
Though the words one can use to describe Jess may be used to describe many others, the difference between those many others and her is that Jess is a living example of what those words mean. She is not just confident; she carries such confidence that not one person in the room leaves it unnoticed. And such is the case with all the qualities she embodies. She possesses a magnetic personality, is a trustworthy individual, a role model for her peers, and she exudes character. It is not only her originality that will make her such a good choice for our City Council, but also her deep dedication to her work.
