Jorji Jett grew up in Beaverton and has lived in Oregon all her life. From the age of 8 years old her best friends were her horses. She has enjoyed many years of trail-riding, barrel racing and other equestrian activities. She graduated from Sunset High School and went directly to work at Xerox Corporation. There she remained for almost 30 years as a Marketing Executive. In the first 20 years she had great experiences and learned incredible skills from the trainings they provided that she would not have received from a college degree. It also allowed her to meet incredible people along the way!
In the midst of a thriving career with Xerox her life was altered with the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. This diagnosis led her down a road of learning to thrive one decision at a time, as she was spending almost 70% of her day in bed and on a number of pharmaceuticals.
Jorji is a very proud single mom of two adult children! Her daughter, Morgan, is a nursing and biology major at George Fox University and has a huge heart for children. She has been all over the globe on various mission trips already. Her son, Chase, 34, lives in Lake Oswego and just got married this past year to her beautiful daughter-in-law, Lisa! She feels truly blessed!
Why did you select the business you are in?
I was introduced to Market America over 18 years ago, which is the parent company of the business I have. A neighbor, who knew how much I was struggling with her MS, introduced her to a very powerful antioxidant, Isotonic OPC3. I was skeptical, to say the least, but after several months I became symptom and prescription-free, and this began my journey to help others as I was helped. I began to also learn the importance of food choices, daily exercise and proper nutritional supplements.
With our company, four years ago I became a Certified Corporate TLS Weight Loss Trainer and Coach. TLS is a lifestyle system customized individually to give results for a lifetime by helping you reach your optimal weight and health goals. I personally have lost 36 pounds and over 20 inches. I get VERY excited about helping others feel great about themselves, when in many cases, they may have given up.
What do you like most about what you do?
The hope it gives to people and to see them start believing in themselves again! This is a journey I have had to take, so they are able to go down a road of learning with someone who has walked in their shoes.
Why did you join WOW and what is the most rewarding or valuable aspect of being a WOW member?
My dear friend, Karen Barnhart, knew that I was looking to connect with other women who were inspiring and had an idea of where they wanted to go, but have fun along the way.... and boy, was she right with the ladies of WOW!!!!! I love the friendships I have already made and the ones yet to make! Every time we have an event I am blessed by associating with powerful women who give me encouragement as a business owner and I always walk away with golden nuggets that inspire me with ideas. And needless to say, I am becoming much more knowledgeable in my selections of good food and wine!!!!
Who could be an ideal potential client for you?
A good potential client for me is someone looking to learn about living a healthy lifestyle, or improving a lifestyle that has gotten slightly off track. They may have a health challenge that by making a few changes about what they put, or don't put into their bodies can affect their health, their energy, and also their weight.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love the outdoors, gardening and getting in long walks with my faithful four-legged friend, Diesel. I love to golf at various courses all over the state, and hanging out having coffee or wine with friends. One of the biggest things I want back in my life that brings me huge joy- horses!! That is definitely on my dream board!!
What are five things you cannot live without?
WOW, that makes you think! The top five things that I cannot live without would be my relationship with God, my relationship with family (kids, mom and brothers), friendships I have, the feeling that I am making a difference in other people's lives and that I am fulfilling my purpose for being here.
Where is your favorite place to vacation?
Anywhere the people that I love are!
