Meet our Founder

Jessica Nori Johnson, DES, founded Nori Event Co. LLC in May 2020. The company was created to serve small businesses, nonprofits and solopreneurs in their journey to provide memorable experiences for their clients through events and programs. Thanks to her valuable past experience, Jessica is able to help clients bring their vision to life and host innovative events and programs within their communities and various industries.

 

Throughout her education and early career, Jessica has been the go-to 

person to seamlessly plan and execute. Her keen attention to detail and emphasis on quality and timeliness ensures success in her endeavors, whether that’s planning and executing an event or putting a process in place to ensure future triumphs. Think of her as the “doer” to your “dreamer”, the person who loves all the details, researching new and better ways to execute and organizing your ideas into an actionable plan. Her expertise is in event planning, partnership activation, programming and project management. She honed these skills during stops at Hillerich & Bradsby, Disney Sports and ESPN Wide World of Sports and most recently, Minor League Baseball headquarters. At Minor League Baseball, Jessica focused on the development and execution of the MiLB Innovators Summit, Baseball Winter Meetings, MiLB Partner Summit and MiLB FIELD program. In addition, she coordinated the MiLB Special Events partnership process by creating new corporate partnership concepts, partnership sales and partnership activation; she also worked on the strategic planning and activation of annual charity initiatives as part of MiLB’s community engagement efforts.

 

Jessica received both her Master of Business Administration and Master of Sports Business Management from the University of Central Florida's DeVos Sport Business Management Program. She also has a Bachelor of Science with a triple major in entrepreneurship, marketing and professional sales from Florida State University, where she was a softball student-athlete. In 2020, she earned a Digital Event Strategist certification from the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) and a Virtual Fundraising Event Management Certificate from the Event Leadership Institute.

 

Jessica loves seeing the details and a great plan come to fruition, where others get to reap the benefits of an incredible experience regardless of the format.
