Jessica Elisabeth Wulff has been a life-long resident of the Kitchener-Waterloo Region, and is of German descent. Her father, Uwe, was born in Hamburg, Germany and immigrated to Canada in 1957 with his parents. She had the opportunity of backpacking through Europe, she decided Germany was the one place she was certain she must see, and stopped in many areas where she learned first-hand the traditions and culture that her grandparent’s had taught her. Jessica graduated from York University in 2008 with an honours degree in Kinesiology and Health Science and a certificate in Sport Administration. Since graduating, Jessica has rediscovered her love of reading, has become involved with Zumba and kick-boxing, has joined competitive sports, and is volunteering for the Prevention and Wellness Committee, for the non-profit organization Eating Disorders Awareness Coalition (based out of Kitchener). Some of her other volunteer work involves Sunnybrook Hospital Foundation, Right to Play, Big Brothers Big Sisters and her current place of employment is Kin Canada. Jessica’s long term goal is to own and operate her own rehabilitation clinic. As Jessica has a German background, when she was little she was reading German books listening to German music and wearing lederhosen or a dirndl to Thanksgiving dinner. She has been attending Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest since she was very young, and it had been her dream to someday stand proud as “Miss Oktoberfest”.
