Macenstein’s “Mac Chick of the Month” (Nov 2007): Jessie
Welcome to Macenstein‘s “Mac Chick of the Month”.
Each month we feature a different die-hard, Mac-loving girl who is (almost) as well designed as the Apple products they love. This month we present you with the lovely, Jessie , a talented NY-based dancer and actress, and of course, a die-hard Mac Chick!
Born in a small town in upstate NY, Jessie’s family had their own funeral home business that had been up and running since the 1800’s, but the tradition may come to a close with her and her brother’s decision to continue in a career of their dreams. Jessie’s being to move to NYC to peruse a career in the entertainment industry.
After landing in “the Big Apple” (no pun intended) , acquiring a degree in dance, and putting vocal training on hold, she made the decision to focus mainly on a career in acting. â€œI think as far as my career goes, I’ve not only taken the stairs, but I’ve run up the down escalator (laughs). It seems to have paid off as things are moving along quite well for me at the moment with lots to look forward to”.
Jessie can now be seen in Nickelback’s Rock Star music video, a few episodes of Primetime‘s “What Would You Do?” segments as the lead in a hidden camera experiment, a reporter for a Maxim online segment, an upcoming episode of Law and Order SVU as “Jodie” (a Mormon nanny who meets her demise), and in a new ad campaign for “David and Young” designs.
“NYC is fantastic, but it’s so much greater put to music. I was so addicted to my iPod that I made the decision to give it up for a week. It was the worst idea I have ever come up with! I have to have music with me wherever I go,” Jessie says. “Right now I’m totally into Matt Nathanson’s new record ‘Some Mad Hope’. it’s pretty much been on repeat since I got it. I’m also diggin Kings of Leon and Ryan Adams a lot at the moment.”

“With all of the cool new Mac stuff that’s coming out I may be a bit lame in saying that I still love my first product, my shuffle. So perfect for working out. I’m completely not careful with it by any means, it’s been pretty much abused and can handle all the dropping and stepping on it that I can manage”.
“I’m in love with my Mac. I make a lot of movies, pretty much that would be of no interest to anyone but myself but it’s a huge hobby that I picked up. I make pretty bad shorts out of boredom with my brother or my friends but iMovie has fed my inner nerd with lots of entertainment.”
