Jessica Sherrill is a Staff Attorney and Director of OPSUCA (Unemployment Representation for School Districts) for Oklahoma State School Boards Association where she has worked since 2008.  Jessica attended the University of Oklahoma where she obtained a bachelors of arts degree in psychology then went on to Oklahoma City University School of Law and graduated a semester early in December 2006 and was sworn in as an attorney in April of 2007.
 
Jessica is a proud second-generation Rotarian; her mother, Rebecca Walls, has been a member of the Oklahoma City Northwest Rotary Club since 1996.  Jessica followed her mother’s footsteps into Rotary when Megan Law, District Governor Elect, asked her to visit the newly-forming Midtown OKC Rotary Club. 
 
Shortly after having her son, Jessica transferred her Rotary membership to the Oklahoma City Northwest Rotary Club.  This was a comfortable fit given that she had known the Rotarians there for so many years and had already volunteered alongside her mother in their service projects.  Jessica served as Membership Chair, Secretary, High School Rotarian Program Chair, Four Way Test Chair, Rotaract Chair, and President (2012-2013) and was selected as the club’s Rotarian of the Year (2011-2012).  During her President year, the club was recognized with a Silver level District Governor’s Citation award. 
 
On the district level, Jessica served first as a judge in the Four Way Test Speech contest, and then became the district chair of that speech contest before becoming the current District Membership Chair.  She is a Paul Harris Fellow +1 and was recognized by PDG Michelle Schaefer with Light of Rotary and Women in Rotary Awards.  Jessica is also a Rotary Leadership Institute graduate and facilitator.  Visiting Rotary clubs and meeting Rotarians became such a pleasure to Jessica that she developed a desire to return to the club that first got her started - Midtown OKC Rotary Club - which welcomed her back with open arms. 
 
Jessica is currently serving as President of the Oklahoma Association of School Board Attorneys and has been on that board since 2010.  She is a member of the Oklahoma Bar Association, National Council of School Attorneys, and the National Association of Unemployment Insurance Appellate Professionals.  Jessica is a graduate of Leadership Oklahoma City’s LOYAL Class III and enjoys mentoring and promoting leadership to high school and college students.  She volunteers mostly through Junior Achievement OKC but is also on the advisory board for Gamma Tau chapter of Alpha Chi Omega.  
 
Jessica is married to her college sweetheart, Jay, who works for Quest Diagnostics on a national team serving large health systems.  Jay is also a school board member for Putnam City Public Schools.  Together, they have a son named Hill, age 6, and a daughter named Ainsley, age 2.  They enjoy music, dancing, and being silly and fun.  Happiness is what it’s all about!
