The Hill published it's 4th annual "50 Most Beautiful People on Capitol Hill" issue and Redskins Ambassador Jessica made the list:
Hometown: Denver, Colo.
She’s got spirit, yes she does.
Jessica Andrews is a cheerleader, and not just in the traditional sense.
As a member of the Washington Redskins ambassador cheerleading squad, Andrews attends promotional events and brings cheer to those who need it.
In her day job, Andrews works as public relations manager for the Fleet Reserve association, which, according to its website, works to “preserve and enhance benefits and quality-of-life programs for members of the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard.”
So on the Hill, Andrews is cheering for servicemen and -women.
When in Redskinette uniform, Andrews said her squad, which does more with military issues than any other squad in the National Football League, often can be found at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
“I’m in the military myself, so it’s nice to kind of bring some good morale to some of the wounded over there,” she said.
Andrews has been in the Air Force Reserves for two and a half years, doing her time at Andrews Air Force Base.
“It seems like all of my activities kind of cross over,” she said. “I love politics and the military, so [Washington] is the perfect place to be.”
