2023 SDAA Banquet Speaker

Explore Moon to Mars: Humanity's Grand Plan

NASA Solar System Ambassador Jessica Rzeszut will present an overview and update on NASA's Mars 2020 mission and the Artemis program, and discuss how we'll use what we're learning to take the next giant leap in our space exploration journey.

Jessica is a lifelong space enthusiast with over a decade of professional marketing and communications experience. Born and raised in the Midwest, she has resided in the San Diego area for many years and now considers it home. Her fascination, appreciation and enthusiasm for space spans education, entertainment, art, literature and fashion, and was ignited when, as a child, she was encouraged to consider the consequences of whether we are alone in the Universe, or not. 

In 2021, Jessica joined the NASA Solar System Ambassador program - a public engagement effort that works with volunteers to communicate the science and excitement of space exploration and discoveries in order to continue the conversation about space exploration with her neighbors and her community.
