Jess's Bio

I grew up on a farm in Northeast Iowa, the same farm where my father and his father were raised.  My parents relocated to Minnesota after I graduated high school.  I have been in radio since 2003 when I interned on KOWZ in Owatonna while attending Brown College in Minneapolis.  After graduating in 2004 I spent 3 years on WCOW in Wisconsin.  Then, in May of 2007 I moved to Mankato to be closer to family and was hired by Three Eagles Communications.  Now, here I am on your radio with George every morning and I'm so happy to be here!
I have loved country music since the 90’s when I was a kid.  My very first concert was Alan Jackson when I was 10.  The list of my current favorite artists is too long to list.  I’m so excited about where the industry is going right now!
I have a crazy toddler that keeps me very busy traveling around Southern Minnesota looking at tractors, trucks and animals (we hit every county fair within 40 miles this summer). He’s seriously the coolest kid ever.  I love running and I will be running the Mankato ½ Marathon for the 3rd time this fall.  If I’m not running (after my son or for fun) I like reading, Pilates and cooking.  I’m proud to call Mankato home, it’s a wonderful place to work, live and raise a family.
