After earning her BS in Sports and Fitness and MBA in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida, Jessica blazed a trail through the fitness industry. Seven years into her career, Jessica was the Director of Parrish Health & Fitness in Titusville, FL (where Brian happened to live and work out!). Her work included oversight of daily operations, budget management, human resources, legal compliance, and hospital/community relationships.
As fate would have it, Titusville is in close proximity to several skydiving dropzones as well as Kennedy Space Center – some of Brian’s favorite stomping grounds and where he spends his offseasons since opening Long Island Skydiving Center. This, of course, is where their paths crossed. A few years into their marriage, Jessica officially joined the skydiving industry.
Today, Jessica is a part of the management team at Long Island Skydiving Center and Dropzone Owner at Boston Skydive Center. Her people skills, financial acumen, keen eye for detail, and respect for the sport, have all proven to be directly transferable from her days in health and fitness.
Jessica’s advice to first-time skydivers is the same advice she followed in 2017 when she pivoted careers: grab life by the horns and do it!
