This month the DPPC said goodbye to Program Coordinator, Jessica Egan. Jessica joined the DPPC team in the summer of 2017 and instantly became a positive and fun presence in the park and the office. Often the first smiling face that greeted visitors to the park, she and her fellow program coordinator Leah Paladino quickly earned the nickname, The Dream Team.
Jessica had a special knack for making visitors to the park feel welcome in whatever way they wanted to enjoy the park, whether that be joining in one of our family friendly programs, sitting on a bench enjoying a coffee or spending time with their kids in the playground.
All of us at the DPPC wish Jessica the best of luck as she moves on to a new and exciting opportunity at RISD. She will be missed, especially by the colleagues she worked most closely with on the programming team, Program Director Jen Smith and Program Coordinator Leah Paladino.
We hope you’ll enjoy some of our favorite moments with Jessica!
