Meet Jess Wygle
Hello! My name is Jess Wygle and I am thrilled to find an outlet for two of my biggest passions; family and writing. I grew up in the Cedar Rapids area and attended Linn-Mar high school. I studied at Kirkwood and UNI.
I met my husband, AJ, right out of high school and we got married shortly after. We’ve been married for 10 years now! In those 10 years, we have welcomed two wonderful children. Our son, Landon, is 8-years-old and a total boy, through and through. He’s very active in sports and is a great student. Our daughter, Fynnlee, is 3-years-old and keeps us all on our toes. She’s an independent spit-fire with lots of sass. We also have a 6-year-old red fox lab named Titan. The five of us live in Vinton.
I currently operate an in-home daycare where I watch a handful of boys from our community and get to spend quality time with my daughter as well as be home when my son is out of school. Being a mother is my calling and my joy. My husband and I feel so lucky to have them in our lives. We enjoy getting out and about in our town and in neighboring communities. AJ coaches Landon in many sports so Fynnlee and I have become full-time spectators and fans. We love to go to the movies, to local restaurants, and community events. Both mine and my husband’s families are local to the area so we are blessed to get to spend so much time with both families.
In my “mommy time”, I love to write. I have written a number of stories, both short and long, and have self-published a few of my stories as eBooks. I also love to read thrillers, mysteries, and crime novels as well as indulge in TV and movies. And I’m not ashamed to say I have a few adult coloring books on my shelves!
