Jess Ross

Director of Donor Relations

I grew up on a dairy farm in the countryside of Pennsylvania and was blessed to be part of a thriving youth group at my church. Looking back, I recognize how fortunate I was to be equipped and encouraged to lead and use my gifts to build up the church and community. Now on staff with Christian Endeavor, I am so grateful to be part of a ministry with that very passion - to empower the next generation to live and lead for the glory of God.


I hold a B.A. in Health and Physical Education from Messiah College. After serving as the Director of Nurture for the Atlantic Northeast District Church of the Brethren and coaching field hockey in a local school district, I joined the C.E. team in August of 2018.



Doing life with my husband Matt and our two children is one of my greatest joys. I enjoy a good cup of coffee (preferably one that I can finish without reheating 10 times), connecting with friends and family, and being active outdoors.
