In this capacity, she assisted the creators of several top-rated TV programs, such as Entourage, The Office, Heroes, 24, and Law and Order. Jessica has since joined forces with her father, Tim Hawthorne, as the next generation of Hawthorne Direct, a Fairfield-based full-service television advertising agency.
