After spending most of her years growing up on the southern end of Michigan’s lower peninsula, Jessica moved to Marquette in the year of 2012 after obtaining her associate’s degree at Kellogg Community College. She attended Northern Michigan University, achieving her Bachelor’s of Science degree in graphic communication with a minor in marketing. During her first semester at NMU she met Negaunee native, Hunter Hetrick, who later became her husband, and they welcomed their daughter, Rylee, in 2017. Hunter is in the the Army National Guard as well as a Michigan State Police Trooper out of the Negaunee post, and Jessica is heavily involved with both careers.
For Jessica’s senior exhibition at NMU, she created a line of clothing to support the individuals of the military and first responders, as well as their families called Shield Maiden Clothing (ShieldMaidenClo.com). She has donated proceeds from this to support nonprofit organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project and 22UntilNone, with continuing volunteer work and support for our local chapters of first responder and veteran programs.
Real estate became a passion for Jessica after being introduced to the Select Realty team, and realizing her skills could be paired with the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. “Be the change you wish to see in the world” is a motto Jessica lives by, and teaming up with Stephanie Jones opens doors to make this come true.
Jessica is a member of the Michigan Association of REALTORS®, the National Association of REALTORS® and Upper Peninsula REALTORS®.
