Celebrate with Jessie was founded in 2014 immediately following Jessie's own rustic wedding and retreat weekend. As her special day came to a close, a handful of wedding guests approached Jessie and requested that she coordinate their upcoming nuptials. Overnight, Celebrate with Jessie was born.
Though Celebrate with Jessie formally began in 2014, Jessie has directed more than a hundred large- and small-scale weddings, non-profit galas, community fundraisers, and professional conferences. Jessie aims to create programs and events that reflect the values and vision of individuals and organizations.
Jessie studied Family and Human Development at Arizona State University and holds a Master’s degree in Social Work from New York University. She has studied internationally in France and Israel and most recently spent ten years living in New York City.
Jessie is firmly dedicated to making the world healthier and more sustainable, which stems from her family, friends, education, travels, and professional experiences. As much as Jessie likes being home, she is happiest when traveling (or in the process of planning a trip!) and has been to over twenty-five countries. She is looking forward to eating her way through India.
When she’s not coordinating weddings, fundraisers, and retreats, Jessie enjoys scrap booking, cooking, photography, pottery, yoga, softball, following Boston sports, and eating foods from around the world.
Jessie got married at Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center in the Berkshires and now lives with her husband Ilan and two daughters Eliana and Bara in Stamford, Connecticut.
