Prior to pursuing an MBA at Michigan Ross, Jess spent six years in the sports sponsorship space. She started her career at CSM Sport & Entertainment on their Consulting team (formerly GlideSlope LLC) where she developed sponsorship strategies for global brands partnering with properties such as the Olympics, MLS, and NASCAR.
