Jessi Opett is a sophomore at Bishop Kearney High School, where she participates in soccer, theater and band. In her free time, she enjoys writing, playing piano, drawing and embroidering. She aspires to be a writer, actress or director when she is older. She has two loving parents and two wonderful sisters. Her Irish descent comes from her mother’s parents. Her grandfather is from Askeaton in County Limerick, and her grandmother is from Fermoy in County Cork. Last summer she was lucky enough to visit Ireland and meet her many Irish relatives. She is honored to be this year’s Ambassador to Waterford, and she would like to thank her grandparents, Nana and Granda for instilling in her a love of the Irish Culture. We are happy to announce Jessica Opett as the 2019 Ambassador to Waterford.
