Jessica co-anchors NewsChannel 13 Live at 11 with Jim Kambrich.
In the past, Jessica served as anchor of NewsChannel 13 Weekend Today and our Berkshire news chief.
Jessica is a proud cum laude graduate of Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, where she majored in broadcast journalism and political science. A sports lover, she played soccer in high school and at SU and credits her athletic upbringing as a major reason she loves the competitiveness of this business.
Along with journalism, Jessica has a passion for singing. If you're an Orange fan, you may have heard her sing the national anthem at some of the SU men's basketball games. These days she's part of a traveling cabaret group - The Singing Anchors - performing for various charitable organizations in the Capital Region.
Jessica is no stranger to the area. She's originally from Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake and is thrilled to be near home again, reporting for the station she grew up watching.
Jessica lives in East Greenbush with her husband; WNYT Sports Anchor Andrew Catalon.
