Jess Appel


I was born in Colorado and lived in the heart of Denver until I was 10 years old. My family moved east to Montclair, NJ, where I met two of my best friends that I still have today. I attended Syracuse University, where I received my B.F.A. in acting. I am still pursuing a life in “the biz,” which up to this point has mostly meant bartending and serving in restaurants for over a decade as well as taking a ton of acting classes (comedic improv is my favorite). I am in love with my fabulous husband (who I moved from NYC back to Jersey for), and we both adore our ridiculously silly and crazy dog. Family (blood and chosen) is the most important thing in the world to me. I can’t wait to sing in my first choir since high school (where I was in three choirs at once!) and continue to make friends with the many people in it.
