Jess has served as Director of Campus Ministry at UL Wesley since 2019. A native of Lake Arthur, Jess spent 17 years in college athletics as both a coach and administrator. Answering a call to ministry was an unexpected left turn at 40, but it has proven to be both humbling and transformative at a personal level. The opportunity to serve and support students and young adults at such an important point in life’s journey is one not taken lightly. It is a gift to do life with people. Jess lives in Lafayette and shares home life as a new wife to Courtney and as a dog-mom to Rufus, the rescue Goldendoodle.
