Jessica Reesor Rempel

Jessica (Jessie) is passionate about nurturing community, extending radical hospitality and seeking out sacred moments in the midst of the mundane. Through her work with PiE, she is energized by experiencing God at work in new and unexpected ways in the Kitchener-Waterloo community. Jessie’s call to this ministry has been shaped by studies at Conrad Grebel and the Toronto School of Theology as well as time spent serving with Mennonite Central Committee in Ontario and in Laos. In addition to her work with PiE, Jessie is currently serving as Interim Chaplain at Conrad Grebel University College. 

Born and raised on a farm, the outdoors still feels like home to Jessie, and you can often find her wandering the woods in Breithaupt Park or digging in the soil in her back yard vegetable garden. She and her partner Steven Reesor Rempel and their daughters, Anna and Stella, live in Midtown Kitchener. Stirling Avenue Mennonite Church is their spiritual home.
