Born and raised on Long Island, NY, Jessica has reportedly had a tan since birth. She has been fortunate enough to enjoy a diversified collection of roles in Atlanta, and consistent opportunities to perform in cabarets, special events, readings and workshops. Jesse enjoys the ocean, The Princess Bride, Star Wars, John Steinbeck, British television, hiking, pirates, folk music, canoeing, dainty flowers, The X-Files and board games that take an extraordinarily long time to play. Her cat's name is Wyatt Earp and she has vowed to name all the pets she ever owns after characters in the movie "Tombstone". This means that someday she will have a fish named Texas Jack Vermilion. In addition to performing, Jessica is a playwright, lyricist, composer, director, teacher, marketing coordinator, grant writer and producer. She excels at inventing cocktails.
