Jessie Short

Assistant Account Executive

Jessie Short joined Strauss Media Strategies as an Assistant Account Executive in January of 2019 after completing Strauss Media Strategies’ 2018 Fall Internship program.

Jessie graduated from University of Georgia in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Interdisciplinary Writing. While at UGA, she co-hosted “Film Thing,” a talk show discussing various weekly film topics on the university’s radio station, WUGA. Her background studies in various media, journalism, and writing led Jessie to ultimately pursue the field of Public Relations in her professional ventures.

Prior to joining Strauss Media Strategies, Jessie worked on film production sets while living in Atlanta. Her participation in these often-independent ventures provided her with hands-on experience to fully understand how to effectively coordinate and run projects from conception to finality and managing all the vital minutiae in between.

When not working, Jessie enjoys going to concerts, traveling, watching movies, reading, going to museums, and watching football and hockey. She is a diehard fan of UGA football (go Dawgs!). Her favorite author is Kurt Vonnegut and her favorite movies are anything made by Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, Damien Chazelle, and Christopher Nolan.

Communications Coordinator, National Geographic Society
"I just got back from a meeting with our vice president of sales for National Geographic Society books and he let us know that a Barnes & Noble in Salt Lake City recently purchased 201 copies of Life in Color to sell in their stores. He specifically cited the radio tour for what caused this increase in sales so I wanted to let you know what a great job your team at Strauss Media Strategies did and how much we appreciate the help from your team. A purchase like that in a time when books are dying (especially during the holiday season when they are overrun with gift books) is amazing!"
