Jessi O’Daniel started her career at Kentucky Kingdom as a ticket scanner at the age of 19. Today, at the age of 26, she is the Vice President of Guest Experience and oversees 1,000 team members and the day-to-day park operations. Jessi’s goal is to provide family fun for everyone in our community to come together, with the larger big-picture goal to make Kentucky Kingdom a regional destination as well as a staple in this community that will stand strong for decades to come. In addition to serving guests who come through the gates, Jessi helps plan Kentucky Kingdom’s charitable partnerships and oversees all ticket donations. Outside of work, Jessi is a Certified Tourism Ambassador for the city of Louisville. We really felt in Jessi’s application her pride and commitment to her work, and she made us feel like kids again recalling all of our happy memories at Kentucky Kingdom.
