Jessie DeschaneHi y’all, and welcome to Just Jessie!

I’m a new transplant to Chicago, working full-time as a social media manager for a startup and living with my boyfriend Ben and our dog Cora. In my *free* time, I started my own business helping other small business owners run their social media and blogs. And then I run this wonderful blog and a YouTube channel.

I’m an extrovert living with an introvert always (get it?) trying to sneak a Harry Potter quote into every conversation.I’m definitely a girly-girl and if I can’t be in workout clothes all day, then you’ll most likely find me in a dress. I lovvvve trying out new restaurants, especially in Chicago – so many choices!

I love to travel and have been lucky enough to visit places like California (three times), IrelandHawaii, Charleston and Savannah – along with a few other places! Next up, Harry Potter world in early 2018! I have the itch to see the world and don’t plan on stopping until I do.

So, why the name “Just Jessie”? There are a few reasons that Just Jessie was perfect for me, but it was mostly because of my name (obviously). My name is Jessie – Just Jessie. Not Jessica. Not Jesse. Not Jessy. There is no “ica” in my name. Because of this, it seems like every time I introduce myself I’m saying, “Nope, it’s just Jessie” so that’s where the blog name originated.
