Chief Operating Officer
Jessica knows the ins and outs of our building and operations better than anyone! She manages the day-to-day operations, budget and lease management at Bounce.

For the past several years, Jessica has worked within the Northeast Ohio entrepreneurial ecosystem in both program management and client services. Prior to working at Bounce, Jessica managed the daily operations of the Akron Global Business Accelerator and before that, worked at The University of Akron Research Foundation and Technology Transfer Office, where she focused on the commercialization of the university’s patent portfolio.
She served as managing partner of the Northeast Ohio Student Venture Fund and as president of the Intellectual Property and Technology Law Association at The University of Akron School of Law. She earned her JD with a Certificate in Intellectual Property and her LL.M. in Intellectual Property from The University of Akron School of Law and is a licensed attorney in the State of Ohio.
