Jessica Burt - Founder
Jessica Burt founded rePURPOSE in March of 2014, because of an overwhelming desire to do her part in the battle against human trafficking. She fell in love with The Exodus Road and Make Way Partners and created a way to raise money to support both of them. Jessica lives in northern NY with her husband and two young daughters. She also owns a full-time photography business and is extremely involved with her church and friends. She lives at the thrift store, loves making costumes and looks for any excuse to throw a party.
