Assistant Director, Alumni Relations
An Army brat, Nikole Jessie was born in Germany and lived in 6 different cities before settling in Louisiana. She graduated with a B.S. in Marketing from Louisiana State University in Shreveport where she pledged Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, and has a background in marketing, public relations, sales and project management. While working in recruiting for LSU Football Operations, Nikole discovered her love for event management and is excited to be part of the Alumni Relations team at Rice Business. Nikole will be responsible for facilitating all alumni events for Houston and the surrounding areas.
In Nikole’s spare time, you can find her attempting to keep up with her energetic 4-year-old son, yelling “Geaux Tigers!” at a football game, riding on a Krewe of Cleopatra float during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, or getting acclimated with her new city – Houston.
