Jessica Smith is Mrs. Greater Norman, 2015.  She will be competing in the Mrs. Oklahoma competition March 27-28, 2015.  She has chosen the OKBTF as her platform.

“As Mrs. Greater Norman and hopefully Mrs. Oklahoma I would love the opportunity to tell people about the OKBTF and make them aware of this terrible disease and let them know they are not alone in this fight.  A life altering Brain tumor that my father had was the thing that brought my family closer together and I would love the opportunity to tell people and give them hope and support so they can do the same in there time of need,” said Smith.

Smith’s father is a survivor of a glioblastoma. Her family was told he had 6 months to a year to live, but after 3 surgeries and chemo and radiation he is now 10 years in remission.

Jessica Smith was born and raised in Oklahoma.  She has been married for almost 4 years now with 2 beautiful children.  They live in Norman, Oklahoma.  She is a full time homemaker,  part time hair stylist and skincare professional.
