Coach Jessica Schellack
Jessica was a three-season athlete in high school. She ran outdoor track for four years and cross country for three years, being appointed Captain for all in her Jr. and Sr. years. She achieved varsity status in her sophomore year and was appointed Captain thereafter for cross country, and in her Junior year for indoor/outdoor. Throughout high school, she helped coach track for local municipal programs.
Jessica was introduced to running by her mother at the young age of 5! She grew to enjoy athletics and sports, appreciating its ability to build fitness, endurance, and character. She continued in college with the novice rowing team at the University of Michigan, receiving an Academic Achievement Award for Scholar Athletes her freshman year. For the remainder of college and graduate school, she would participate in various intramural sports, running road races until the pandemic.
Jessica is honored to return to The Wilberforce School athletics for a second season and hopes to mentor student athletes such that they find joy in sports and overall fitness and achieve their potential in competition, all to the glory of God. In between runs, she manages Penstock Coffee with her husband, their three children, and flock of ducks.
