Joined Mason in 2011

I love Mason because it is more than a workplace, it’s a family.

Joined Staff Senate in 2019

I joined the Staff Senate because I believe we all have a place here at Mason, no matter our title or place in the hierarchy. We all have something important to share and experiences that make us an asset to the greater good of the university. With that in mind, I think we should celebrate our abilities and insights, and share these across positions, departments and campuses. Not only that, I think sharing knowledge should be encouraged and rewarded.

Jessi currently serves on the Staff Senate Awards and Engagement Committee, the Staff Senate Executive Committee, and as the Treasurer of the Staff Senate.

Position Title: Presidential Communications Manager

Current Department: Office of Communications and Marketing

Joined Mason in 2013

I appreciate working at Mason because I admire the university’s dual ambition: To serve the many and not the few, while at the same time aspiring to become/remain one of the top research universities in the country.

Joined Staff Senate in 2017

I joined the Staff Senate because in conversations and at town hall-style events, I sometimes hear staff members say, in essence, that their commitment to Mason feels deeper than Mason’s commitment to them. I think there is a collective desire throughout Mason to support the lives and careers of staff members, but we can look for more and better ways to ensure that that is the case.

Preston serves as a co-chair of the Communications Committee and on the Staff Senate Executive Committee.
