Jessica has been in the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa food and beverage department for three years and loves working at Council Oak Steaks and Seafood.

“I love the opportunity to work with some of the best chefs and taste all the different flavors,” she says while raving about the 30 oz Long Bone Cowboy Ribeye. The steak features a 13 inch bone with the guests initials carved into it.

This is Jessica’s second time in the calendar after appearing as Miss September 2014. She’s started working  at Hard Rock since graduating from Southeastern University.

Q&A with Jessica

Favorite Musical Artist?

“I’m a big country music fan. Guys like Garth Brooks because his songs tell a story, but I really love Kip Moore. He was the only time I was star struck when he came into Council Oak. His songs are just fun, like when you’re getting ready to go out it gets you pumped up.”


“I’m really into physical fitness. I love CrossFit, pilates, yoga and just started boxing.  It’s a great stress reliever and if I’m going to get mugged, I’ll know how to handle my self.

“Competing in CrossFit is a little addicting. I like to improve on my personal goals. Before I started I could barely lift anything above my head, now I can do 50 butterfly pullups in  row. It’s all about body control.”

Experience of being a Hard Rock Calendar Girl?

“The whole process is amazing and to be a part of it is wonderful.  I really enjoy Gasparilla (Pirate Festival). The atmosphere is great and so excited to be there. We have a beautiful float.

“Being a calendar girls is a reward for all the hard work I’ve done with exercise. I know you have to be physically fit to be in the calendar.”
