Jessica

Hi everyone! My name is Jessica and I am the wife of a combat veteran diagnosed with PTSD.

I am originally from New Jersey but lived overseas in Guayaquil, Ecuador during my high school years. That’s actually where I met my husband. His father was a special agent for the DEA so he grew up living all over Latin America. After high school, I took the college route and graduated from the University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Affairs.

My husband followed in the footsteps of his father and brother and enlisted in the Army where he served with 1st Ranger Battalion from April 2004 – July 2006. He deployed a total of three times – twice to Iraq and once to Afghanistan. After the Army, he decided to go back to school full time and graduated from George Mason University with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. We now live in Alexandria, Virginia with our cat, Tigre. I am a defense contractor and he is a case manager for offenders with a violent/serious charge.

My husband was diagnosed with PTSD in September 2007, a year after being honorably discharged from active duty. The symptoms of PTSD have been a huge part of our marriage and I’m here to tell you all about the good, the bad, and the ugly. We have come a long way since his initial diagnosis in 2007 but as many of you know, PTSD will forever be a part of our lives.
