Board of Trustees
Board Member – Jessica Schumacher
Jessica has an extensive background in strategic planning, organizational development and fund development consulting in the nonprofit space from local fundraising efforts to international nonprofit organizations. She is also a past president of the South West Suburban Philanthropic Network and a local business owner. Jessica’s skills help her excel on the JMS board and its planning committee. As a key organizer of the 2016 Parents Orientation Dinner, one of the largest events of the year, she executed a revenue-positive evening that helped support the school’s activities throughout the year.
Jessica's firstborn son has been at JMS since 2015, and another son who will follow in his big brother’s footsteps soon! She and her husband chose JMS based on the moral and educational values of the Montessori method, and the attention each child receives on a daily basis.
