Back Story: Just as some are thinkers, and others are doers, people like Jessica Springer are born to be makers. Trig’s very own Dr. J glides through life, making things work—and work very well at that—whether it’s precision aircraft, heavy equipment, or lean manufacturing. From her time at companies like Milliken, Moen, Caterpillar, and Honda Aircraft, Jessica has gained a real appreciation for shaping products from multiple perspectives—she appreciates form, function, and versatile application, and sees each “making opportunity” as a chance to learn a new market space and shape it as well. And while her days at Trig may stop when the work is done, that doesn’t mean all the making is complete. This arts and craft devotee just can’t turn off her creative engineering abilities, finding a never-ending stream of outlets, from painting to drawing, to match her creative flow.
