Supervisor Jessica Pyska
Jessica Pyska comes from a family with Lake County roots dating back more than eight decades. She was raised on Cobb Mountain and graduated from Middletown High School in 1994.
Pyska attended the University of California Santa Cruz, graduated in 1998, and moved to San Francisco, to work in commercial real estate in the financial district, where she met her husband, Joel.
In 2005, the Pyskas moved to Lake County to build their family. Together, they continued to invest in real estate and founded JP Consulting, a home-based web and mobile app consulting business. Jessica Pyska also worked in the wine industry prior to serving as Garden Coordinator at Cobb Elementary. The Pyska’s two children, Camille and Asher, greatly enjoy the rural childhood their mother cherished on Cobb Mountain.
2015’s Valley Fire destroyed the Pyskas’ family home, and they immediately set to work rebuilding not only their home but their beloved community. Jessica Pyska has spent the years since working as a volunteer on long-term recovery, disaster preparedness, and strategic planning through the Cobb Area Council, which she co-founded in 2016, and served as Vice Chair through 2020.
Pyska is committed to using her many years of hands-on experience, energy, and vision to accelerate Lake County’s pivot to an authentic, prosperous, inclusive, and dynamic community, built for the future.
