When she is not working, Jess enjoys spending time with her husband and their rescue dog, cooking and experimenting with new recipes, hunting for vintage treasures at thrift stores, hosting board game nights, reading fiction novels, and frequenting the movie theater. Overall, Jess looks forward to having a happy life, doing what she cares about with those whose company she enjoys the most.
