Community Engagement Associate – Omaha
Jessica joined Spirit Catholic Radio in 2016 as part of the Community Engagement team. She is responsible for networking with various parishes, apostolates, schools and ministries in the Omaha area. The second oldest of 8 children, Jessica grew up in Beatrice and studied graphic design at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She spent 8 years in the U.S. Army Reserves, serving one tour in Iraq. As a “revert” to the Catholic Church, Jessica credits Spirit Catholic Radio for being the instrument Our Lord used to “bring her home,” and is now excited to be part of the mission she believes can set the hearts of the Body of Christ on fire with joy and zeal. Her “go-to” saints include Our Lady of Sorrows, St. Francis, Padre Pio, St. John Paul II, St. Faustina and all saints of Carmel. She enjoys traveling (with a particular love for Ireland), photography, hiking and especially spending time in Eucharistic Adoration. Her favorite Bible verse is Micah 7:8.
