MEET -- Jessica Creech & Jordan Creech -- Dancing the Cha-Cha to Dat Thang  by Club des Belugas

                                                       Jessica Creech

                                                       Dance Training: Jessica grew up dancing and was a member of the Kinston Dance                                                              Academy. She continued dancing throughout High School by joining the Marching                                                              Band’s Colorguard. She also enjoys breaking out her silly dance moves by dancing                                                              around her home with her husband. However, this will be her first time attempting ballroom dancing.

                                                       Education and Work Experience:  Jessica is the owner and lead photographer of Jessica Creech Photography. She grew up in Greene County and graduated from Greene Central High School in 2007. She moved to Wilmington, NC and studied Paralegal Technology at Cape Fear Community College. She moved to the Kinston area in 2015 and worked at White and Allen, P.A. as a Paralegal for two years before taking on her photography business full time in the summer of 2017.

                                                       Background & Interests:  Jessica enjoys traveling with her husband and photographing their adventures. She loves reading and curling up on the couch with her four fur babies. Jessica is her happiest when she’s on the dance floor of a local bar listening to live bands.

Greatest Accomplishment to Date:  Winning Best of Kinston for Photographing (she is literally still pinching herself), being able to document the most beautiful love stories, and of course marrying her best friend.

What does Jessica like about Lenoir County? Jessica loves the people of Lenoir County. For such a small community, everyone has so much pride and love for the town and it’s people. They all come together to support each other and to support the local arts and businesses. It’s so nice walking into the grocery store or restaurant and 9 times out of 10 you’ll see someone you know who greets you with a warm hello or hug.

What is Jessica looking forward to by participating in this event?  Jessica is looking forward to taking on a new adventure with her husband while raising money for the Lenoir County Community Council for the Arts.

                                                          Jordan Creech

                                                          Dance Training:  Jordan was enrolled in the local cotillion during his 6th and 7th                                                                 Grade years where he learned basic dance and etiquette under the instruction of                                                               Mrs. Ann Cherry.

                                                          Education and Work Experience:  Jordan graduated from North Lenoir High                                                                       School in 2007 and attended East Carolina University where he graduated in 2011                                                           with a degree in Business Management. Jordan works as the Commercial and                                                                       Industrial Estimator of Creech’s Painting, Inc. and also occasionally second shoots weddings at Jessica Creech Photography, his wife’s photography company.

Background & Interests:  Jordan is a Kinston native who recently moved back to the community in 2017. He enjoys traveling with his wife to new places, biking, reading, and cuddling up on the couch with his wife Jessica and their two dogs and two cats.

Greatest Accomplishment to Date:  Jordan says his greatest accomplishments to date include earning the rank of Eagle Scout, graduating from East Carolina University, helping Creech’s Painting continue to grow in the community, and marrying his beautiful wife who helps him balance it all.

What does Jordan like about Lenoir County? Jordan’s favorite thing about Lenoir County is that it always feels like home. There are friendly faces everywhere and you’ll always see a familiar face whenever you are out on the town. He is excited for the progress that Kinston has made in recent years and can’t wait to see the town continue to expand and develop.

What is Jordan looking forward to by participating in this event? Jordan is looking forward to a new adventure together with his wife and adding a bit of personal flare to his dance while raising money for a great cause.
