Fun Fact: Jessica has a journal entry that she wrote in the fifth grade that says, “I want to be an accountant when I grow up.” She wrote it on April 15th.

Jessica’s aspiration to work in accounting began when she learned about accountants in middle school. Through diligence and hard work, she made that dream come true. Jessica is an outgoing and approachable professional. Her colleagues and clients find her easy to relate to. She has served HCJ CPAs as a member of both the Hudson Cisne & Co. team and the Jones & Company team. It was a happy coincidence for her when the firms chose to merge into HCJ CPAs & Advisors.

 

Raised in Camden, Arkansas, Jessica first moved to Jonesboro when she started college. After living and working in Little Rock for a few years, she returned to Jonesboro and lives there to this day. She loves the city for its people, its community spirit, and its wonderful nonprofit organizations. In her free time, Jessica loves to spend time with her husband, Jon, and their children, Jett and Jaxon. Most weekends, she can be found at a baseball park watching her older son play travel baseball.
