I am Jessie Evans, the Executive Director of the Marlboro Chamber of Commerce. I am 26 years old. I was born and raised here in Marlboro County. I graduated from MCHS class of 2014 and then from Francis Marion University with a Bachelor’s in Political Science in 2018. I grew up in a small business household; both of my parents run businesses here in Marlboro County. So, I have witnessed firsthand the stress, and the rewards, of running a business, while also benefitting from it. Without them and their hard work, I would not have been afforded the privileges I had growing up. I have always known that I wanted to stay here, and raise a family here; I am personally invested. I am excited to grow my knowledge of commerce so I can potentially better the way of life for myself and for everyone else in this community, specifically business owners. I hope that I will be able to help people like my parents and every member of this Chamber while in this position, and I look forward to that opportunity. If you're curious about the Chamber or interested in joining, please don't hesitate to give me a call!
