Jessica Jantzen brings over a decade’s worth of experience in technology, and in early childhood and elementary education. As co-owner and Director of Operations at HappyFeet Soccer Twin Cities, she instructed developmental soccer programming for children ages 2-6 using a play-to-learn curriculum, compiling lesson plans that foster the whole child.
Wearing many hats in a small business (and being a tech enthusiast at heart), Jessica’s administrative focus shifted toward utilizing business technology to maximize operational efficiency with Google Workspace and NBC Sports Next’s SportsEngine and GoMotion software platforms, and is excited to apply this knowledge in an educational setting!
In seeking a solid and inclusive Catholic education for their four children, Jessica and her husband Tim joined the St. Joseph family in the summer 2022, met by the warmest welcome and an unrivaled sense of community. As an adult convert to Catholicism since 2011, she has a particular passion for Catholic studies and apologetics and jumped right into the opportunity to become a 5th-grade and middle school catechist within our parish. She can all too easily be talked into joining a Jeff Cavins Bible study or any small group with other faithful Catholics!
When they aren’t in the classroom, soccer fields, or volunteering, you can find the Jantzens at Minnesota United Soccer games, playing a few rounds of disc golf, biking single tracks, and hiking along the North Shore.
