About Jessica Hernandez
Jess first started working for the City of El Paso over 10 years ago, but beginning her career with Parks and Recreation. But during the pandemic, many Parks and Recreation employees were able to shift over to work at the El Paso Animal Services shelter since recreational facilities were closed down. Jess began working with EPAS walking dogs, really filling the hole that volunteers left during that trying time. She started officially with the volunteer program in 2021 and became our Volunteer Coordinator in 2022.
