Hi, my name is Jessika Jenson. I am a professional snowboarder from Rigby, ID. I had the honor and the privilege to represent Team USA in the 2014 Winter Olympics for Snowboard Slopestyle in Sochi, Russia. I hope to have another opportunity to represent Team USA in the 2018 Winter Olympics for Snowboard Slopestyle and Big Air (Big Air has recently been added as a new Olympic event!) in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
I am eligible, along with 9 other girls, to try out for the US Olympic Team. The team is given a maximum of 4 spots. There is a total of 5 Olympic Qualifying events. One qualifier event has already taken place, last season at Mammoth Mountain, CA. I took 5th out of the American competitors. I have 4 more Olympic Qualifiers this coming season: Copper Mountain, CO; Breckenridge, CO; Aspen, CO; and Mammoth Mountain, CA. Our best 2 results are taken. Help me fulfill my dream of qualifying and attending the 2018 Olympics and compete with the best female snowboard athletes in the world, for medals in both Slopestyle and the newly added Big Air event!
I have so much dedication and motivation and train very hard, but I am struggling financially to get to all the U.S. Snowboarding training camps necessary to be ready for the Olympic qualifiers. I need your help to raise money to support my training and journey to Pyeongchang. Thank you so much for anything you can contribute!
Help me become a 2x Olympian! I would like to raise $8,500 to help cover my upcoming traveling expenses for training and competitions. Be sure to check out the incentives for donating and the all the prizes included in the raffle drawing - QC35 Bose Headphones, Ride Snowboard, Zeal Goggles, lift tickets, and so much more from my sponsors!
