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.

WXPR’s Annual Fall Auction and Concert will be held Sunday, November 6th at Holiday Acres Resort in Rhinelander. Silent auction items will be on display starting at 2:00 pm.

This fall, WXPR will cut our on-air fundraiser in half, from ten days to only five! We’re cutting our drive in half so you can enjoy even more of your favorite programs.

Won’t you contribute now? All the Money in Half the Time can’t happen without you and your generous support.
