She was also a member of the renowned Jireh Gospel Choir which performed regularly at numerous festivals and events in Canada, and at the World Polyfolia Vocal Showcase in Normandie, France. She also performed as a solo jazz artist in Montreal city.

Since her arrival to the United States in 2009, Jessica has been active as a Music Educator under the faculty of the Musical Arts Academy of Dover, in New Hampshire. While in Dover, Jessica was a private Voice and Piano instructor, and led jazz vocal workshops at local grade schools in the surrounding area.

Students who study with Jessica have gone on to become performing artists of their own. Their successes have resulted in some of them performing in their own bands, improvising and doing their own song interpretation, getting leads in school plays, and even becoming singer-songwriters themselves.
