Reasons for nominating:
Jessica is an amazing person, woman, military spouse! Since the moment she arrived on Yuma Proving Ground she has poured herself into the community. Where ever help is needed she is there. She has been a part of the Price Elementary PTO from the first day her son started school. She started as the Treasurer and is now leading the PTO as President. This is so very important to our small post where this tiny public school's budget is so small. Jessica has also been the leader of the post library's preschool story time. She makes every week magical with themed stories, crafts and snack. She has been a part of a committee to get a new playground for the elementary school. She volunteers for the MFFS FRG every chance she gets. She has a huge heart for the kids and wives alike. One of the events she chaired for PTO brought all the military spouses together for a vendor/small business event. She supports all the women in business personally. She is a wonderful person and a great friend to many in our community! Great friend doesn't even begin to touch on how good she has done for some friends and their families. -- Margo Groves, Friend
