*Jessica Abo believes that no matter where we are in our careers, relationships, or level of activism, we’re all a work in progress. She is the author of Unfiltered: How To Be As Happy As You Look On Social Media and a sought-after keynote speaker who focuses on leadership and development topics. Her speaking tour has included appearances around the country at Facebook, Microsoft, Delta Airlines, the United Nations and hundreds of conferences, nonprofits, galas, religious organizations, universities and schools.

A multi-award winning television journalist, Jessica started her own production company in 2013. Her videos can be seen in her weekly segment on, and her YouTube channel profiles athletes, celebrities, CEOs, and entrepreneurs and their transformation of struggle into strength. Jessica is excited to expand her company and introduce a fashion line debuting at New York Fashion Week in September 2018.

She is also a passionate philanthropist, raising more than a million dollars for several causes by organizing her own events and running marathons. Jessica sits on various boards and committees and contributes to their recruiting and fundraising efforts. She is a proud graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and, despite living in Los Angeles with her husband, remains a New Yorker at heart.


Special thanks to Jeanne and Tony Pritzker for underwriting the series as a loving tribute to Tony’s late mother, Susan S. Pritzker. The goal of the Pritzker series is to feature dynamic and educational presentations by top professionals, appealing to women of all stages of life.
