Jessica Arnold – Membership Chair

Jessica  has worked in the aviation industry for twelve years.  She began in  customer service at an FBO at Palomar Airport – Carlsbad, CA.  She  worked her way up to a supervisory position and enjoyed leading her  team.  She has worked in aircraft maintenance on the administrative side  which helped her to better grasp another angle of the industry.   Jessica later moved into a new role in Marketing and Business  Development for a company who had several departments including FBO fuel  sales, Charter, Management, Maintenance and Avionics.  This allowed her  to work closely with affluent clients, department managers, and  vendors.  She has worked for an aircraft charter broker, and continues  to do contract work for various companies in the industry. 

Jessica  finds much joy in volunteerism.  Throughout her life she has always  volunteered in some capacity in her community.  Most recently she has  been a Compliance Monitor for Escondido Education COMPACT, 2d Lt in the  Civil Air Patrol Oceanside Squadron 87 as a Public Affairs Officer and  Recruiting and Retention Officer, various opportunities at Palomar  Airport, and opportunities with WAISD since joining the chapter in  2015.  She considers herself a student for life and loves helping others  and volunteering where there is a need in her community. 

One of  her favorite quotes is by General Douglas MacArthur is “A true leader  has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions,  and the compassion to listen to the needs of others.  He does not set  out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and  integrity of his intent.”
