Jessye is shared between The Community Foundation Finance Department and the ChildcareTennessee initiative. She provides as administrative support, travel coordination, expense report filing, and other supports to both teams.
Before joining The Foundation, Jessye worked with TennCare, assisting with the Managed Care division, leasing with MAA, a real estate development trust, and was recently certified as an insurance producer for the State of Tennessee in Property, Casualty, Life, and Health.
She attended both the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) and Belmont University. Her time at these institutions helped shape her love of education, child care, and the possibilities of positive change when the right organizations are funded by people who care.
Outside of the office, Jessye enjoys spending time with her miniature dachshund, traveling around our beautiful city searching for the best food, and supporting local businesses when she shops.
