Jessica Dean

Advisory Board Member

Jessica Dean is Senior Vice President of the Bradley Impact Fund, a donor-advised fund for conservatives that works closely with the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. She has been in conservative policy since the dawn of time – first as an intern for the American Spectator while a student at Vanderbilt University. After graduation she returned to the magazine as a staff assistant and eventually became its first online editor. Jessica also worked as an associate director of DonorsTrust, then moved on to the Heritage Foundation where she worked in development for over a decade before becoming president of the Bradley Impact Fund for three years. She has served on various boards, including Rotary, TeamCFA, and her son’s school. She is the wife of Will Dean, a USAF fighter pilot, and mom to Griff, who fancies himself to be a monster jam driver one day. In her spare time – all three minutes of it – she is a competitive horseback rider and enjoys traveling and skiing.
