Jessica Schmidt

LCS Athletic Director

Jessica lived in Washington D.C., Hawaii, Colorado, while finally spending the majority of her youth in the “place of 10,000 lakes”….MinnEsota.  She was born into a military family with her mother serving in the Army and her father in the Marines.  She has an older brother, James, and a younger sister, Lindsay (both still reside in the land of mosquitoes). In high school, Jessica was an athlete competing in competitive softball and volleyball.  She also loved water skiing off the back of their families boat and snow skiing on the hills of Duluth, MN.  Jessica decided to attend Saint Cloud State University (Go, Huskies) after graduating from Anoka High School (Go, Tornadoes!). She got her Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education with an emphasis in technology and social science.  Jessica was campus supervisor of all the computer labs on campus and enjoyed watching the Division 1 hockey!

Jessica is currently pursuing her Master’s of Education in Educational Administration. She has aspirations of being an administrator because she has a true passion to assist children in their growth and assist educators to be the best they can possibly be.  Her great grandmother was a teacher in a one-room schoolhouse, her mother is a teacher of 25 years, and she is a teacher of 12 years. Jessica has been with Life Christian School for the past 6 years as an educator as well as the varsity volleyball coach.  Jessica is married to the one and only, Eric David Schmidt, for the past 10 (almost 11) years!  They have four fantastic children:  Kobe Jay, Gavyn James, Fiona Rae, and last but not least, Milo David.

While sitting in her pre-law class, Jessica got a phone call from the office manager at Life.  She stepped out of class to take the call and little did she know, God had a completely different path for her life.  Jessica was asked to come in for an interview after being recommended by a friend.  She accepted the invitation and the rest is history.  Jessica absolutely loves her LCS and LCC family!  She has grown in her love for others, challenged in her profession, and flourished spiritually. “For I know the plans I have for you, “declared the Lord,” plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
