Jess comes from a land down under. Aside from being our Australia show rep, this Gold Coast native went to school at Presbyterian Ladies College in Perth and absolutely destroys at ocean swimming. Her athletic resume includes 5th place in 10km open water and 8th in the 1500 freestyle at the World University Games in Kazan. She took 4th place for Female Open 10km at the Australian Open Water Nationals in 2013, and 1st in Female Open 10km at the NSW State Championships in 2012/2011.
The list goes on: 1st Female Open 5km QLD State Championships 2012/2012, 2nd Female Open 10km QLD State Championships 2012, and 1st in 2012 and 2013 Rottnest Channel Swim (20km). How’d she link up with the JOLYN crew? “I fell in love with the swimwear when I saw it on one of the American girls in Japan and was then lucky enough to hang out with Tanya on one of her visits to Australia.”
