Jessi was driven to succeed while lifting people up, particularly women, throughout her career. The JCF scholarship selection committee recognized similar characteristics in these women and are excited to see them succeed while carrying Jessi’s legacy forward. It is with the support of partners like @warnindustries , countless small businesses, and a legion of individuals that believed in Jessi and her mission that make it possible for the program continue to grow year after year.

“August 27th marks the day that Jessi gave everything in pursuit of her passion. It’s now the day that we, as the foundation in her name, give to other passionate, hardworking women in pursuit of their dreams. It’s an incredibly meaningful gesture for us. One that was at the core of who Jessi was, and one that we as the Foundation will continue ongoing.” Said Graham Suorsa, Board Member and close friend of Jessi.
