Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.
Jessica Widdup joined the Junior League of Long Beach in 2015 to volunteer and connect more deeply with the community in which she was raised. Her first couple of years in the League were dedicated to the Kids in the Kitchen program. This allowed her to experience the direct impact the League has on the youth of Long Beach by empowering them with technical skills, knowledge and confidence to live more healthy and active lives. This year, with the support of the amazing women she’s met and the inspiration derived from the mantra “you cannot break the league,” she has said yes to a Board of Directors position. Jessica received her bachelor of fine arts degree specializing in interior design from California State University Long Beach and currently is a commercial interior designer/project manager at Kardent in Downtown Long Beach. Jessica will never tire of cat videos. She might get tired from Orange Theory though. She enjoys watching Paul Rudd movies with her husband and her two favorite felines Momo and Appa.
