Jess Held

Executive Vice President & COO

A marketing pro by nature and a charismatic people person at heart, Jess joined Lessing-Flynn in 2008 and is now a principal at the agency. Relying on a surplus of experience and energy, she oversees all client relations and helps shape branding, advertising, public relations and B2B marketing strategies. If we listed all the local organizations and mentorship roles she’s been a part of, you’d probably wonder how she has time to get anything done, but it just goes to show how great she is at cultivating her support teams. Jess is the linchpin that keeps us all together, and her trademark people-first approach makes it easy to see why.
