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.
The Junior League of Long Beach is a training organization. The trainings, experiences and support the League has provided Jessica encouraged her to take on a Leadership position last year. She loved her experience and is excited to continue her roll on the Board of Directors this year. This will be Jessica’s second consecutive term serving as the Executive Secretary.
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 having game nights with her husband and her two favorite felines Momo and Appa.
