Say hi to Crissy Knox

Through the planning process, I learned the purpose of Crossing the Jordan, saw the beautiful hearts of the team giving guidance, the perseverance of the program members, and ultimately, the lives that have been saved through this amazing recovery program.

I am an event planner and I love my job!

I have been planning private events for over 25 years and business events for over 18 years. From the very beginning of my event planning years, my friends and family members have always encouraged me to pursue a career in it. I could not imagine it was possible to have a job where I have so much fun, doing exactly what I love to do. But as fate would have it, that is precisely what I am doing today!

Before starting my own business, I was the supervisor of Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens. My position allowed me to develop and create hundreds of events using any creative resource I desired (within reason of course) any location, vendor, food or wine to achieve the desired theme or outcome. Even with the variety of responsibilities within my position, I was always drawn to the events.

In 2015, I decided to start Jelsie Events and began my career as a professional event planner. After I received an event planning certificate through the Special Events Institute, I attended some workshops to prepare for the start of my business. I met Dana Bryant, the Founder of Crossing the Jordan, during one of these workshops.  Later that year Dana called to ask me to help plan the 2016 Not Forgotten Ball, Crossing the Jordan’s fundraising Gala. I was so thrilled! Not only to plan the fundraiser but to have Crossing the Jordan be my very first client as Jelsie Events. Through the planning process I discovered the purpose of Crossing the Jordan. I got to see the beautiful hearts of the staff and the perseverance of the program members, and ultimately, some of the lives that have been saved through this amazing recovery program. Some of these men and women helped me in the planning and execution of the event. It warms my heart to see their eagerness to learn and help. There are so many truly talented individuals within Crossing the Jordan.

It is an honor for me to work with Crossing the Jordan. These are beautiful people. I am proud to share with my community and friends that Crossing the Jordan is my client! I am eager to spread the word of the tremendously powerful transformations that happen with this organization.
I thank Dana & Michael Bryant for giving me this opportunity.

I would like to see more of your work
