JES­SICA MAZZA Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, In­ter­nal

Au­dit, Chicago, IL Mom to Rachel, 19, Ha­ley, 15, and Pierre and Rosena, 9 Af­ter vis­it­ing an or­phan­age in Haiti as part of a church vol­un­teer group in 2012, Jes­sica and her hus­band, Shawn, fell in love with two of the chil­dren, Pierre and Rosena. They set out to adopt them. But de­lays in the process were hard on the cou­ple and their two older kids. Jes­sica had the for­ti­tude to re­main fo­cused on her fam­ily and work through­out years of pa­tiently wait­ing. This past March, they re­ceived news that they had suc­cess­fully com­pleted the adop­tion of both chil­dren. TIAA says: “Jes­sica has had an ex­tra­or­di­nary ca­reer thus far, and is rec­og­nized across the or­ga­ni­za­tion as a con­fi­dent, com­pas­sion­ate and de­lib­er­ate de­vel­oper of ta­lent.”
