Supporting comments: "The breadth of Jessica's
extracurricular and co-curricular involvement at Denison, remarkably,
is paralleled by a host of academic achievements. Because of the vision
and heart with which she fulfills her leadership roles, she certainly
has earned the genuine respect and admiration of her fellow students.
As much as anyone I have known, she understands the importance of being
part of a team and working toward the team's success. Because Jessica
is outgoing and friendly and has all the other characteristics we hope
for in the people with whom we interact, whatever the organization, she
consistently has risen to positions of authority and leadership. She
has been elected to multiple leadership positions within her sorority
in which she is a role model to younger members. The same has been true
in Psi Chi, the psychology honorary, in Campus Crusade for Christ, and
in the organization she began to provide student mentors at the Licking
County Jail. Other students see her commitment, understand her passion
for quality, feel her concern for their lives and emulate her behavior.
In this way, Jessica has left a lasting mark within the University
community that lives within those who get to know her. She lives her
life as an example to all."
