Jescey Thompson
G-E-T FFA Chapter


What influenced you to join FFA?

Throughout my childhood I was always involved with agriculture. Whether that was showing my family's dairy cattle, working at our feed mill, speaking about land & water conservation, or simply traveling to fairs - I was always advocating for Wisconsin Agriculture. When I was in 8th grade, my advisor told me and a buddy of mine to join the chapter at the State Convention that year. I was so impressed with the convention and remember being so inspired. After this experience, I was ready to begin my participation in our organization.

What inspired you to serve as a State Officer?

I distinctly remember my connections with the Section 3 State Officers who have served before me. I remember how they genuinely cared about me, supported me through my highs and lows, and inspired me beyond measure. Their impact on me was quite incredible. I desired to serve as a State Officer to inspire members, just as they did for me. 

What are your favorite FFA experiences?

I would have to say that attending the State Convention every year was my favorite experience. I loved being able to watch others succeed up on stage and celebrate the wins of our chapters. State Convention was also a time where I could make new connections with other chapters, which was also super cool.

What are your future plans?

I am studying agricultural communications and marketing along with political science. Someday I hope to work for an organization that advocates for agriculturalists. Whether that be working for the government, a private company, or a non profit - my one goal is to continue making progress for our industry and make the world a better place to live.

What is something members should know about you?

While I may not have been very passionate about sports in high school, I love to play a good game of Volleyball or take a jog and chat!
