Jessica graduated from Howard Payne University with a degree in Political Science. She initially went to college at Howard Payne due to its reputation as a christian school in hopes of becoming a Christian. Salvation finally came in 2009 no thanks to her hard work, but all thanks to the grace of God. During college she married her high school sweetheart, Anthony Dustin Nelson. After graduating Jessica and her husband moved to Austin Texas. After a hard couple of years she was invited to Wells Branch Community Church by a friend, and immediately knew that she found her home. Jessica loves to help and encourage women to grow in their faith. Jessica and Anthony have one daughter, Angelina Marie, and are looking forward to adopting two children in the future. Jessica enjoys playing board games with friends, reading, sushi, running, and weightlifting.
