Welcome NEW Board Member Jessica Green !
We are pleased to welcome Jessica Green to the PAL Mission Board of Directors! Jessica is currently the Marketing Director at Whipple Auction and Realty. Tragically losing her own daughter through a Trisomy 13 birth, Jessica reports an advocate was born on that awful day. She decided her child’s legacy would not stop there and quickly found her voice and started speaking to the public about infant loss and grief. She is the founder and owner of Jessica Green Photography, specializing in remembrance photography for local grieving families experiencing the loss of a child at any age.
Originally born in Dayton she was quickly introduced to child welfare and foster care when she and her siblings were removed from their parents care due to severe abuse and neglect. After being adopted at 7 with her twin brother Jacob, she watched as her siblings aged out of the system without families and realized how rare it was for an older child to find a home. She attended Dover High School and completed a Graphic Design program through Buckeye Career Center.
She spends most of her free time administering child loss support groups such as Still Mothers Support, and Addison’s Army, writing blogs, speaking to local organizations, and doing volunteer work making comfort baskets and memory boxes for local hospitals with the group, Sweet Pea Angels.
Welcome Jessica! We are honored that you’ll be able to bring a very unique perspective to our governing board!
