Jess grew up in Kansas and was an early adopter of the internet in high school where she used her skills to barter for various items, including a subscription to Wired magazine and fondly remembers having a ‘phone book’ of url addresses (pre Google). She moved to Chicago where she stayed for 10 years and found success as a top impact player for the Chicago Force, a women’s professional tackle football league for 4 seasons where she earned several league honors, gameday mvps, rookie of the year, defensive player of the year and team mvp. Jess migrated to San Francisco 7 years ago and enjoys being outdoors with her family and friends every weekend in the wanderlust of California. Her and her spouse of 15 years are knee deep in toddler life with their 20 month old son and love raising the next generation of feminist men as they balance their careers with a life that brings them joy.
