With more than 20 years of non-profit fundraising experience, Jess Regan works hard for the dogs as Agape’s Development Director. Jess has raised millions of dollars for some pretty amazing organizations through major gifts, planned giving, annual appeals, special events, and grant writing. Jess has always had a passion for all animals, and that passion exploded during her 6 years as the Development Director at the Humane Society at Lollypop Farm in Fairport New York where she was also a foster care volunteer for more than 15 years.
Jess earned her bachelor’s degree in English/Communications from Le Moyne College in Syracuse, NY. Born in NY, Jess has also lived in Vermont, Connecticut, and Boston before relocating to Nashville in 2021.
Jess’ family includes her husband Tom, two sons (both in college) and her latest foster turned forever family member Patrick – a Plott Hound/Pitbull mix who has so much energy that he doesn’t know what to do with it!
