Jessica obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design from Mount Mary University, leading to a 13-year career in commercial design. After a friend's advice, she opened an Etsy shop selling vintage decor and furnishings called SoLoMarket. She purchased a broken antique agate clock and restored it. After a year, it was featured on Etsy's front page, selling almost immediately. With over 4000 hits and many inquiries, she had an idea: to create a modern agate desk clock. The listing for the modern clock soon went live.
In 2017, Jessica rebranded as Mod North & Co., adding clocks and garlands. Two years later, she designed dreamcatchers and wall art, becoming an LLC with a design patent and trademarks. In 2019, Anthropologie started selling her clocks. 2020 brought new website and marketing efforts; by March 2023, her products had found 10,000 homes.
Jessica is a homeschooling, patriotic mother living with her marine veteran husband and five young children in the lake country area of Oconomowoc, WI.
