Jessie’s commitment to ensuring that the needs of children are being met is heard loud and clear through the heart she wears right on her sleeve.
Her advocate coordinator, Michele says, “From the moment I met Jesse I knew she was going to be a fierce advocate. Her enthusiasm is infectious and it pushed me to be a better coordinator, and for that I am grateful. Jesse has advocated in the best interest of four CASA children and will not hesitate to make a difficult recommendation. She is such a blessing to our CASA program and children and I am blessed to call her my friend.
"While I have never worked on a case with Jessie, I had the pleasure of assisting Jessie with getting her CASA child enrolled into a modified sports program. It was evident how important it was to her that the child be able to have this experience and she made sure that is was followed through. Jessie even attended the award ceremony and saw her child get a medal! Jessie embodies the most beautiful spirit and I feel so lucky to know her,” said Salem advocate Coordinator, Cara.
Jessie is such a great advocate with the strength to match. She brings so much value to our team and we are grateful for her service!
