"Jess brings a lifetime of preparation to the role of school director.  Her educational and employment attainment will help her make excellent decisions for the education of our children.

Having faced her own disabilities throughout life, Jess brings an additional set of skills to the school director role that most people do not have. . . her life accomplishments have succeeded based on her own grit to never give up.  Our children who are dealing with their own disabilities would be enchanted by Jess' leadership in the Olympia Public Schools.

The best gift we give our children is role models who care for them.  Jess is that person."
