Jessica Cox joined ClientEarth US in August 2016 and is based in New York.
After college, native New Yorker Jessica spent over a decade in London, first as Director of Marketing for British Elle then for Turner Broadcasting as Marketing Director of the Cartoon Network. Her career has included roles with the BBC launching BBC Horizon (now BBC Earth), and Universal Studios Networks as Vice President of Brand Development.
During a trip home, she witnessed clearcutting of a local forest and mountaintop where she had spent much of her time as a child. This led her to join Riverkeeper as Development Officer, working alongside Robert Kennedy Jr to raise funds to help protect the Hudson River.
Jessica has now enjoyed a 15 year career in non-profit fundraising, specialising in major gifts for organisations including the Environmental Defense Fund, the ACLU and Mercy Corps.
