Since childhood, Jessica Jacobs has always had a fervent imagination for storytelling.

She co-wrote, directed, and produced a number of short films, including Life In Text (starring Tyler Ritter and Alexandra Daddario) that gained rave reviews on Yahoo!, JustJared, NoFilmSchool.com, and Slashfilm. After college, Jess assisted the CEO & President of Echo Lake Entertainment (NEBRASKA). Simultaneously, Jessica became a Film Independent Incubator Lab fellow and was awarded a grant from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences for her filmmaking endeavors. In 2016, she moved over to Jeff Robinov's new studio, Studio 8, where she worked in the book department and sought out available material, up and coming filmmakers, and developed tentpole movies for global audiences. Next, she worked in post and on set with Paul Schiff on Netflix's HOW IT ENDS, starring Theo James and Forest Whitaker.

Now, Jess is a Director of Development and Producer at Artillery Creative, an indie production and management company.
