It is with great excitement that USA Curling welcomes Jessica Schultz as Director, Women’s National Team & Juniors.

 

USA Curling CEO Jeff Plush is confident that Schultz will help take these programs to new heights. “I’m thrilled to welcome Jessica to USA Curling’s Leadership,” Plush said. “Not only has she competed at the highest level on the ice for USA Curling, but she has also tirelessly devoted herself to the grassroots level of the sport.”

 

Among a lengthy list of accolades, Jessica Schultz is a two-time Olympian and three-time national champion. Schultz is also the founder of curlAK, a non-profit organization committed to growing the sport of curling throughout the state of Alaska. 

In her role with USA Curling, Schultz will work to develop junior programs throughout the country, as well as oversee the Junior High Performance Program and the three High Performance women’s teams.

“I’m over the moon excited to play a role in the continued strengthening of our organization,” Schultz said. “We have a talented group of athletes, and I look forward to being a consistent resource from the grassroots to the podium.” 

 

USA Curling would like to thank Dave Jensen for his years of service and countless contributions, as he created a developmental pathway to set junior curlers up for long-term success. Additionally, USA Curling thanks Pete Fenson for his lasting impact on the sport of curling in the United States.
