Global Community Lead & TCO Queen

Jessie D’Amato Ford


Jessie has been part of the Topcoder community since 2005. She leads the community team and manages the Topcoder Open as the TCO Queen (a title she reluctantly accepted a long time ago…!). Working remotely from a small beachside town in Connecticut,USA, Jessie is working mom to two amazing kiddos who definitely keep her busy. A family girl at heart, she truly loves the community as her extended family and does her best to always keep their best interests top of mind.

Fun fact: Jessie may be an adult but is far from it as she loves doing handstands in her living room, having dance parties in her kitchen, and knows all the lyrics to pretty much every Disney song by heart.
