Jessica Murrer has been a member of the Lutheran church since chapel school. She attended Bronxville High School and was captain of both the field hockey and track & field team. This past May she graduated from Rhodes College located in Memphis, Tennessee with a bachelor of arts in Anthropology and Sociology and a minor in Religious Studies. Jessica has been passionate about health and fitness her whole life and would like to implement it into her future career. Pastor Hartwell has always been a role model to her because of his ability to weave humor into his sermons and genuine character. He has inspired her to run the marathon because of his physical transformation in 2007. She is extremely excited to run her first marathon and to raise money for the Lutheran church!
