Jessica “Jump-Start” Klocek- Project Designer

Jess is another proud Lehigh University grad where she got her BA in Architecture and Urban Studies. After joining MKSD and working with us for a year, Jess enrolled in the Architecture program at Drexel University where she received her BArch after four long years of commuting to Philly. Those four years of her life were pretty busy because she also fell in love, bought a house and got married!

Outside of work Jess enjoys spending time with her husband, Joe, and their six- year old Yorkie, TJ. They love the outdoors and Jess can often be found in her garden or bike riding and camping with Joe. It is a good thing that she enjoys all things outdoorsy because her yard often looks like conservation land with all the wildlife visitors. The most entertaining of the group is a rambunctious squirrel who likes to attack the grill.

Another thing that has influenced Jess’ hobbies is that when she was 11 years old she found out that she was allergic to pepper after a visit to Mr. Bill’s in Allentown where she sampled some turkey London broil. Her allergy forced her to be creative in her cooking and now she loves it!

A few things you may not know about Jess:

Favorite TV show: All of the Real Housewives shows but NY is my favorite because of Bethenny

What’s in your fridge? A huge bucket of bread dough, pickles and the normal stuff. OH, and Skinny Girl Margarita.

A little OCD: She cleans out her closet once a month and donates her wardrobe surplus items to Purple Heart.
