Legal Assistant

Jess is our firm’s legal assistant.  Jess grew up in Minnesota and moved to “balmy” Idaho (as she describes it) with her husband and three boys in 2012.  Jess has an Associates of Arts degree in liberal arts from Inver Hills Community College, in Inver Grover Heights, Minnesota. Jess is a classically trained legal assistant, where she obtained significant legal experience working for a large firm in Moorhead, Minnesota.  After working as a paraprofessional for years in the Vallivue School District, Jess returned to the legal field by joining Ketlinski Law Office in January 2020.

Jess is involved in all areas of our work at Ketlinski Law Office, and specializes in assisting in the probate and trust administration area of our practice.

Jess loves photography, camping, horseback riding, fishing and spending time with her family.  Her youngest son started high school this year, and her two oldest sons are currently attending college.  She is excited to soon have a daughter, as her oldest son is getting married this fall.  Jess’ 160-pound great dane Emmett also keeps her busy.
