Raised in North Carolina, Jessa started climbing in the gym at the age of 9. Soon after, she was competing on a national and international level, climbing outside on weekends and breaks from school. By the end of high school, competition became less of a priority as climbing outside became more of a priority. Her focus would be turned to boulder problems and traditional lines in the Southeast. Currently all Jessa’s efforts are toward taking 20+ years of skill and experience into the mountains. At the moment she resides in Fayetteville, West Virginia, within walking distance of the New River Gorge and works as a sales rep and athlete in the outdoor industry.
