Fit4Mom Downtown Austin Owner/Instructor
Jessica, "Jessie", has always had a passion for health and fitness. She is a United States Air Force veteran, published National Bodybuilding competitor/model, and previous first-round draft pick in Ladies Football League (LFL) for the Austin Texas Acoustics.

Soon after his homecoming, she and her husband Roger moved from Houston to Buda.
