founder, positively oaks
Jess here. Your main gal and creator of Positively Oakes. I am a wife to a handsome man named Marcus, Mama to a baby girl named Blake and pup Mama to 2 furry guys who go by Howie and Doc. I love Dr. Pepper–seriously am obsessed, laugh at myself often and love writing every chance I get. I have literally kept a journal since I was 5 years old and my first journal entry read something like this, “Last night I slept over at Grandma’s house and it was fun”. Clearly, I have a way with words. I am generally somewhere between a happy dance and a nervous breakdown, but that’s what makes this all the more fun! I am pretty much an open book and like to keep things as real as possible.
You can follow my family’s journey, read more about us, here or follow me on IG @#1. Positively Oakes
Why am i a part of this campaign?
"I am a strong believer in fighting for childhood cancer. I have watched close family and friends go through it and I want to do everything in my power to work towards curing it so that others don't have to face that same challenge. My Uncle, who was like a Dad to me, had terminal cancer and I watched him fight strong for over 12 years. I want to show my daughter, my family and those around me the love I have for this community and that doing everything you can to show support can make a huge difference. It's an ugly disease and I want to see us stand up to it."
