Jessica Lea Risco
Jessica’s free-spirited gravitas is the result of years of exploration, escape, and discovery.
Dignified and shy, quirky and loving—she’s a deep well of life experience and emotion.
A shiny goddess of vulnerability, her acting channels fragile strength into playful, curious creativity.
Jessica’s skills and ethos have made her a new-works warrior—she keeps getting hired to create roles in film and on stage. She cherishes her calling as an open-hearted, community-minded actor and filmmaker.
In pursuit of a synthesis of service, creativity, and community, Jessica is currently helming the development of an artists’ studio where creatives can grow and make dreams come true.
P.S. She speaks Arabic and French. Ask her about the Peace Corps, becoming a doula, and yogis in the Sahara Desert.
