Jessie Dick

Development Director

Jessie moved from Colorado and 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 happen.

When she’s not at WXPR, she’s reading, biking, skiing, or spending time with her husband and young son.  WXPR listeners hear Jessie during fun-drives, weekly on All Things Considered, and occasionally on Morning Edition

Become a Sustaining Member- Pledge $5 and Receive the Our Wisconsin 2015 Calendar

The pictures in this calendar make a solid contention that Wisconsin is one of the prettiest states in the nation. But for those of us who live here, that case is already closed.

Flipping through the pages of this calendar is like taking a photo tour of the seasons...from the promise of spring...the warmth of summer...the color of fall...to the purity of winter.
