Jess McIntosh has enjoyed watching EMILY’s List double in size…twice…since she started here as Deputy Communications Director in 2010, becoming Communications Director early in 2013. Before joining EMILY’s List, she had the honor of working for some really fantastic feminists who happened to be men (a fact she does not hold against them). Most recently she served as spokesperson for Sen. Al Franken through his campaign, recount, subsequent election contest(s), and first year in the Senate. Jess has also worked in research and communications for the successful campaigns of Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, as well as serving as Communications Director for the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party.
Jess is a graduate of New York University, where she earned a MA she has never found occasion to use in English Literature. She lives in DC with her husband, dog, one small cat and one enormous one, who are ranked here in order of preference.
