Jessica is a member of the Top Glove Boxing Academy in Sudbury, Ontario, under the direction of her coach, Gord Apolloni.  She is a Registered Kinesiologist and has helped many achieve their health and fitness goals, and realized it was time for her to do the same.  Jessica was no stranger to hard work and high-level competition, as she is the 1999 Canadian Cadet National Biathlon Champion.  She began boxing in January of 2013 and hasn’t looked back.

Jessica was born and raised in Sudbury Ontario and has been active all her life.  She has participated in activities like horseback riding, long range large bore target shooting and cross country running, to name just a few.  You might find her out on the trails, foraging for wild greens or practicing her photography, when she’s not in the gym.  She’s married to Lisa Lepage, a producer at CTV Sudbury.

Jessica was a member of the Breast Action Coalition of Sudbury, who’s mission was to centralize breast cancer screening and treatment, giving patients quicker, easier access to the services they require.  She is thrilled to be included on this card, and looks forward to putting on a great performance in the Fight to End Cancer.
