Jessica Rose Garris
Corps Grad ’06
I graduated from The Citadel as a member of Delta Company Class of 2006. I am married to an Army veteran with three amazing children. We have lived in various states, including South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Mississippi and North Carolina. I currently work in the school system, and I have been the owner of Garris & Wilson Entertainment Services, LLC since 2013. We now reside in Charlotte, North Carolina.
What about your time at The Citadel had the most positive impact on your career or life?
The two most positive impacts that The Citadel had on my life are 1) getting the ring, and 2) walking across the stage with my diploma as I became a part of the Long Gray Line.
How do you think your experience at The Citadel got you to where you are now?
The Citadel was one of my greatest challenges! It pushed me to never give up and stay true to who you are, even in the midst of adversity.
