'I have worked in the care industry for over 27 years and have been involved with joining in with many of the entertainers who visit the homes.
I first came across Jessie just over 5 years ago where she kindly sent me a sample CD to play for my residents. They of course loved it and we have continued to book Jessie on a regular basis. Jessie is extremely engaging with our residents, dancing and singing with them too, which means so much to them.
One thing in particular that is memorable to me is when I asked Jessie if she would come and sing to one of our gentlemen who did not feel like coming to the lounge. Jessie came with myself and two staff members and sang "Danny Boy" ( which was appropriate as it was St Paddy's Day!). There was not a dry eye in the room and to this day it is still talked about.
Many entertainers are willing but Jessie really embraces and understands how little things mean and can change someone's day for the better. I have recommended Jessie to many of the homes that I looked after regarding activities and they adore her also..............'

'Jessie is the perfect choice for your event. She is an exceptional performer who connects with her audience and brings the songs to life in a way that touches those who listen to her sing in a personal way. With many years experience in the performing arts, her dedication shines through when she is on stage. Friendly and approachable yet professional and polished, her act will not fail to delight all age groups as she shows versatility and a style of her own. We have had the pleasure of booking Jessie for personal family events and parties, watching her perform on stage and in musicals and booking her for elderly residential groups and local pub venues. She always performs to the same high standard whether it is for a small intimate group or at a large theater production and is a delight to listen to. We would certainly recommend her for any venue large or small'
'Thank you for a very lovely evening. This lady was like a cool breeze as she entertained us last night with a great selection of songs both old and new.
She had the attention of our audience in her first spot and was even better in her second. She excelled herself with her final spot and really pulled out all the stops.
An entertainer who changed her dresses for each spot, and finished in a red one that our ladies wanted for this Fridays 70s Nite.
Jess, you are welcome anytime, you had been before as a duo, but single or together you certainly left your mark. See you again in the near future.....Thanks ..'
