“Jessi is a natural-born teacher. She does not leave others to their own devices or simply give them projects to do, but truly introduces them to the work world, providing them many opportunities to learn.” Dr. Susan Isaacs, Towson University (Towson, MD)

"I just wanted to thank you for your speech yesterday. It was so appropriate and humbling. I was moved by what you said and how you related your calling but in a non-religious way. You were the perfect speaker " Lovedy Zie-Carroll, Pala Casino Spa Resort (Pala, CA)

"I went to your marketing class for non-profits and I thought you were fabulous. I think you have a tremendous talent and I like learning from you, you can really heal an audience. Keep up the good work!" Adrianne Burleigh, Volunteer Outreach Coordinator, Volunteer San Diego

"I want to thank you for your very informative and inspirational presentation at the ISES Luncheon at the Red Cross Building. One of the points that has stuck most with me is that one must be consistent and true to your image in every communication and interaction with the public. I wholeheartedly agree with this and will strive to follow this advice at every opportunity—from answering the phone, to networking and following up with people, etc." Jessica L. Barnes, Human Rights in North Korea Project, FREEDOM HOUSE, Washington, DC

 “In this role of mentor and teacher, Jessi has shown great patience and skill. It is clear that she is a gifted teacher who knows how to strike the balance between hands-on instruction and allowing students to be active learners on their own.... Jessi is a fair, responsible and dedicated woman .” Bee Johns former Curator, DCCA (Wilmington, DE)

“Jessi spoke to the Business Student Association at the University of Delaware about how to be successful in pursuing a job in a business-related field and what modern "marketing" is all about. She was by far the most captivating speaker the BSA had the entire year. Jessi used her real-life experiences to relate to the students and engage them in the presentation. ... Because of Jessi's varied work experience and knowledge of many different aspects of business, she was able to appeal to students with all different majors and interests. The BSA would love to have Jessi speak again at one of our meetings.”-Kristen Blough Former Treasurer, Business Student Association, Newark, DE
