Jessie joined WXPR in 2003. She grew up in southern Wisconsin, but her Grandparents have always called the Northwoods home.

She feels thrilled to work with such a talented and dedicated group of volunteers and staff, and enjoys meeting and getting to know the supporters that make WXPR possible.

When she’s not at WXPR, she’s reading, biking, skiing, or spending time with her two little boys and husband. 

WXPR listeners hear Jessie during fun-drives, weekly on All Things Considered, and occasionally on Morning Edition

Jessie holds a BS in Design from Colorado State University.

Join us for a "WXPR Party Under the Big Top" Saturday, September 10th at Big Top Chautauqua in Washburn, WI.

The beloved house band, The Blue Canvas Orchestra, opens the night with rollicking renditions of some of our favorite songs, illuminated by big screen images. Then author, humorist and host of Tent Show Radio, Michael Perry delivers his hilarious tales of rural Wisconsin life.

The WXPR group will gather before the show in the VIP Tent at 6pm, then move under the Big Top for the performance at 7pm.

ArtStart Rhinelander and WXPR have partnered to bring The Lowest Pair to ArtStart in an intimate, house concert setting. Banjo riffs, timeless folk and country influences, and haunting vocals are what this Minneapolis-based duo, Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee are all about!

Join us at ArtStart in downtown Rhinelander, or tune in to WXPR at 7PM to listen to the live broadcast.
