Jessica Schipper

Jessica Schipper gives all for every organization she volunteers for. From Hardin County’s Relay for Life to Prairie Bridges Park, her church, the Harms 100 Clay Shoot and the Ackley Chamber of Commerce, Jess has graciously given of her time to the community she loves.

From 9 to 5, Jessica Schipper serves as the Branch Manager at Green Belt Bank and Trust in Ackley. After hours, it’s time to focus on her family – her husband Todd and their children, Ryleigh and Jaxon. It’s Ryleigh’s senior year at AGWSR where she is active in cheerleading, band and vocal, speech, musicals and plays. Jaxon keeps his parents busy following the many sports he is part of. It seems like there’s little time left for sleep, let alone finding time to help her hometown of Ackley grow.

As a child, Jess was taught to help where she could. She credits her parents, Delmer and Patti with instilling her passion for giving back to her community. It was they who encouraged her as a child. She began by cleaning tables and carrying trays at her church, St. Mary’s Catholic in Ackley.

Schipper first got involved with Relay for Life Hardin County following the death of her dad, Delmer Harms, in 2006 at the age of 53. He died of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, and now his daughter is fighting to end the disease.
