She trained at the esteemed Makeup Forever Academy where she gained expertise in Beauty/Fashion, Hair, Special FX, TV, and Body Painting. Fueled by the city’s boundless energy, Jessica returned to her Chicago home and founded MAKEUP FIX by JEM, an educational program designed to help new and established artists with their artistry and career. Determined to help other artists succeed not only where she lives, but also where she was born, MAKEUP FIX by JEM operates in Chicago and Mexico. Today Jessica is proud to count Nike, Complex, Kohl's, Sears, Kmart, Lifetime TV, and Adidas among her growing client list. Her work has appeared in Marie Claire Turkey, Teen Vogue, and ELLE México.
