Growing up homeless; sleeping in cars, motels, or a stranger’s couch, Jessica considered food always with a question mark. The oldest of 9, she lived in her first house when she entered high school. With no other choices, she became a young care taker of her family while she worked towards a college degree.
“Self-reliance is in my DNA.”
She was on tour with her husband’s band, running the sound when they decided to start a family. She ran the show while caring for her newborn. To get off the show business circuit, Jessica cut her entrepreneurial teeth on a graphic design company catering to musicians that immediately took off. Soon after, Jessica helped her husband Matt start a chain of Mexican restaurants. As Jessica and Matt went through the ups and downs of business, she stayed committed to homeschooling her children and bringing them up as citizens of the world.
