As one of the original six, Jessie’s been around the SMS Elite team for a long time! Coming from Minnesota, she’s failed to lose her midwest accent so far but has gained a lot of friends out East, and loves training with her teammates. Graduating from Stillwater High School in 2010, Jessie gave up a scholarship to NMU to pursue a full time career in skiing like the crazy little lady she is. Besides training and racing, which she loves because it gives her the opportunity to push her body to new limits, she enjoys swimming, cliff jumping, reading, dancing, camping and learning to play guitar. Jessie has also been a member of the US Ski Team since 2011.
