Jessica Ponce, Fund Development Vice President

Born and raised in Long Beach, Jessica takes immense pride in the city she calls home. She graduated from Cal State University, Long Beach with a BA in Fashion Merchandising and Minor in Marketing; which she applied in the footwear industry for many years. Deciding to take a break from the long hours and extensive travel to have children; she traded the jetsetting to devote her time to her family, the Junior League of Long Beach and other community organizations.

Jessica joined the Junior League of Long Beach in 2016 and has served as a member of the Grants Committee, LUNAFEST Chair, Website Management Chair, and founding member of the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force. JLLB’s Training has encouraged growth in the application of new skills in multiple facets of life; but what drew her to JLLB was the community involvement. Afterall, a community is only as good as its people and by nurturing, teaching, and empowering its citizens the whole community thrives.

She enjoys cooking, reading, and spending time on the beach with her family. Her goal is to be impactful through service to this beautiful city.
