Jessi is our Executive Assistant, as well as one of our Legal Assistants, and works in the Trusts and Estates and Business practice groups. She joined the firm in 2003 and is generally the first smile you will see at Redstone when you walk into the office.
Jessi reflects our core values. Here is what Redstone team members say about Jessi:
“Jessi is the epitome of professionalism. She is always polite and a great go-to person for questions.”
“Jessi is efficient at multitasking and can handle with finesse anything thrown in to her court.”
“We’ve yet to find a challenge or a problem that Jessi couldn’t solve or manage to resolution.”
“Jessi is truly an asset to this firm. She is everything good in a person and I’m proud to work with her and honored to be her friend.”
“Whenever I have a question, Jessi always knows the answer. Even when in the middle of something, she’s happy to help—always with a smile on her face.”
Most interesting place she’s visited in South Dakota: Jessi can’t narrow it down to just one. She has visited many beautiful places in SD, including the Black Hills (Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and the Badlands), the Oahe Dam, the Corn Palace, Palisades State Park and Lake Hiddenwood State Park.
Little known fact about Jessi: Jessi grew up in southwest Minnesota, and while she visited this area on family trips, she didn’t come to love it until she moved to SD in 2003. While Jessi enjoys living in a small town near Sioux Falls, she is close enough to enjoy the benefits of the Sioux Falls economy.
- Her Responsibilities at Redstone: Jessi enjoys multi-tasking. Because her desk is at a central location in the Redstone office, she’s become a master at balancing competing demands for her time. With her organizational skills, she keeps the office moving, organized and efficient.
- Movies: Couples Retreat, Inside Out, and Home Alone
- Books: The Traveler’s Gift, The Noticer, The Heart Mender, and The Energy Bus
- Hobby: Cross-Stitch
While not at the office working with the Redstone team, Jessi enjoys: spending time with her family and friends, returning to see family in Minnesota, and her husband’s family farms so they spend quality family time helping out with ongoing farm work. She also enjoys family outings to the park, out to eat, or to a special place/event. As a busy mom, Jessi appreciates the occasional chance to simply slow down and relax with a good book or movie.
