WORD ON THE STREET

“We turned to J Shea for their help with our 29th Annual Montgomery College Foundation Golf and Tennis Classic at Woodmont Country Club and we are very happy that we did. Jessica and her team are a pleasure to work with – very professional and a wealth of ideas. They are very communicative and their turn around was always very quick.  We enjoyed working with them, as did our vendors.  Things went so well that we already booked them for next year’s golf tournament!”
– Katie Kumkumian, Director, Donor Relations and Board Stewardship Montgomery College Foundation


“The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) had a completely excellent experience working with Jessica Shea & Associates during our 50th Anniversary Gala. From start to stop, J Shea was seamless, elegant, and spectacular! At the conclusion of the event, we actually found ourselves saddened that our special working relationship with them had drawn to a close, which says something special about the special magic they bring to the table. We heartily endorse and recommend!”
-Jeffrey Douglas, Director of Communications, AAVMC


“J Shea provided outstanding event planning and onsite services, and met all of my expectations (and then some). Their ideas were fresh and they thought of everything it took to execute a successful staff function.”
– Nichelle Jefferson, Office Administrator at Clifton Larson Allen

“The services our team received from J Shea to execute a successful sales mission were professional and creative. We were looking for new ways to reinvent our mission and the ideas and support they provided were exceptional. We look forward to partnering with them again for future events of various sizes!”
– Summer Davey, Assistant Director of Sales for San Antonio Convention & Visitors Bureau


“Planning a 400 person event using a combination of staff and volunteer support requires creativity, skill and patience.  J Shea demonstrated these traits as her team managed CoSN’s 2016 “Monumental Impact” Advocacy Dinner and Auction in the District of Columbia. Jessica’s team was particularly effective at streamlining the operational process thus allowing us to maximize attendance while minimizing food costs and wait times related to check in for the event. Some of these changes were substantive changes to the operating procedure while others resulted from the use of a simple mobile application. Most importantly, she was effective in leading both staff and volunteers through this process. Not surprisingly, the J Shea team will be moving forward with us as we plan another successful event in Chicago in 2017.”
– Robert Duke, CAE, Chief Operating Officer – CoSN

“We have hosted the Freeman Charity Golf Classic for 9 years now, and J Shea has been our planner for the past three.  What a difference it makes to have Jessica and her team involved in our tournament.  Since hiring Jessica our sponsorship dollars and registered golfers have increased and most importantly so has our charitable donations.  Being in the events industry I understand the time and effort it takes to produce a successful event and Jessica has it down to a science.  Their attention to detail is extremely comforting when it comes to hosting a tournament.  What I appreciate most is that she and her team don’t think of this as just another golf tournament, rather they work to provide a memorable experience for Freeman, our sponsors and our guests.”
– Clint Jones, Senior Director Business Development, Freeman

“Jessica Shea has created the perfect organization, a mix between an excellent appreciate for style and creativity, blended with a perfect balance of logistical effeciency and endless diligence.  I have had the pleasure of experiencing many J Shea events, but most recently I asked Jessica to plan and execute my charitable golf event from the ground up.  From the beginning Jessica was committed to my cause as if it were her own.  No idea was off the table.  She was creative and fun with activities for our golfers.  She was also budget conscious and had many great ideas on cutting costs where needed.  The talents at J Shea are vast yet practical.  They have a very confident yet calming approach to managing the event the day of, which in turn is very calming to us as the client.  When you work with J Shea, expect a “big time” event that will allow your guests to enjoy all of the bells and whistles they are hoping for.  They are committed to their clients, have a strong dedication to detail, and a passion for creating memorable events.”
– Ashley Perkins, Chair, Ben Shaffer Memorial Golf Classic

“Faced with declining attendance and revenues the two 30 year old ASAE golf tournaments were on “life support”.  With proposals from many high profile event planners, I turned to veteran planner, Jessica Shea to manage the details and aggressive revitalization plans.  Not only did she orchestrate our team of 27 staff and volunteers, she led both events to sold out status with a waiting list of sponsors.  This unprecedented growth was rated 4.67 by our attendees out of a possible 5!  To sum it up:  she is good people and very insightful.  Having her on the team allows me to focus on other things.  She is a breath of fresh air and can keep up with creativity and expensive tastes all within budget.”
– Stephen Peeler, VP of Development at ASAE Foundation


“Jessica and her team truly understand what it takes to coordinate and produce a world class golf event.  We played in the ASAE Foundation Golf Classic which must have had well over 150 golfers and our team could not believe how seamless everything went with that amount of players.  Our team had to make a last minute change and Jessica went above and beyond in accommodating me due to my lack of proper planning.  J Shea is simply the best in the business!”
– Andrew Keith, VP of Partnership at Multiview

“We had our hands full trying to set up the inaugural AJ Janosko Golf Classic until Jessica got involved.  Shortly into the first meeting with her I knew Jessica was the right person to plan this emotional event as we discussed the complete tournament timeline, outline, and objectives.  Her enthusiasm and structured, detailed-oriented approach to planning and execution achieve an efficient, smooth, and well run golf tournament that is fun for all.  We could not have had the hugely successful inaugural event without Jessica and her team.  Because of that success people are talking about and already looking forward to next year’s event.  I would not plan and execute a golf event like this one without Jessica leading the way!”
BJ Janosko, President at AJ Janosko Education Trust

“Travel Alberta has worked with J Shea for over 3 years and had great success in planning and organizing our USA sales missions and key account client events throughout the USA.  They have made things so simple through their attention to detail, unique event theme ideas, and understanding our goals and objectives for our events.   Having J Shea organize all of the details lets our business development team focus on their  role of bringing the right customers to the events, networking, and building successful relationships.”
