Keynote Speaker: Jessica King
Jessica King was born and raised in Fond du Lac County by disabled parents, and overcame many life challenges at a young age. Becoming a ward of the state at age 15, Jessica put herself through college with hard work and scholarships. Jessica earned several academic and leadership honors during her college career at University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. After college, King pursued a law degree and graduated from Thomas Jefferson Law School.
In 2004 Jessica came back to Oshkosh to help with her parents as they battled cancer and kidney failure. King wanted to give back to the community that had given so much to her and became very involved in several community groups. She has served as an adjunct professor at University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. In 2005 Jessica was awarded the Outstanding Organization Advisor Award for her mentorship of undergraduates involved in various extra-curricular programs.
She opened her own small business and ran for Oshkosh City Council. She served her 65,000 constituents from 2007 to 2011 as Council Member and Deputy Mayor. Most recently, she served as the State Senator of the 18th Senate District which encompasses parts of Fond du Lac, Dodge and Winnebago Counties.
In 2008 Jessica was awarded the Democratic party of Wisconsin’s Eleanor Roosevelt Award. This award honors a local elected official’s commitment to pursuing strong public policy on behalf of her constituents.
In her keynote, Jessica will share her inspiring personal story of finding her own path to Leadership!
