Email – Jessie has been a member of St. Thomas’ since 2007. She previously has served as the chair of the inclusion and parish life committees and on the vestry from 2013-2015. She has been a greeter and member of the formation committee. She currently is a reader and sings in the choir. For her, serving in the church was a given as she grew up in the Episcopal church singing in choirs and teaching Sunday school through high school and college at St. Paul’s in Salem, Oregon and then at St. Anne’s in Stockton, California. She recognizes the value each adult member of a parish plays in the success of the community and is happy to be a part of St. Thomas’ lively community!
In the rest of her life, Jessie lives in Anacostia, is assistant principal at a charter school in Petworth, a wife to Leti, guardian of Nancy, and cat parent of Adhdison. She loves to read, spend time near the ocean, and take barre classes in her spare time.
