Since a junior, Jess’ constant progression through the junior rankings showed that she was talent for the future. However it is Jess’ senior years that have really shown her talents evolving having earned both England and Great Britain selection for numerous combined events internationals in both the u23 and senior age groups.

Jess first jumped into the limelight at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, where she produced the performance of a lifetime to set a new personal best of 5826 and receive a much deserved bronze medal in the heptathlon. This marked the arrival of a new star on the English team where she now ranks as one of Britain’s best ever heptathletes and still has immense promise as a multi-eventer. Her sights are now set on the World Championships in Beijing in 2015 and Olympics in Rio in 2016.
