Jessica Roshek, SBA '10
Vice President of Lending, Genisys Credit Union
Best memory from OU:
Meeting one of my best friends, Laura, in stats class during my first year in the program.
One of my favorite accomplishments was walking across the stage in the O’rena to accept my MBA degree. With my family in the audience for support, it was such a rewarding feeling after many years of challenges and hard work.
Finish this sentence: "After OU, I..."
didn't realize how much I would miss going to class and working on assignments and projects!
A word of wisdom for graduating seniors:
To achieve true success, you cannot take short cuts or be dishonest - those things will always catch up to you. "Integrity is doing the right thing when you don't have to - when no one else is looking or will ever know - when there will be no congratulations or recognition for having done so." - Charles Marshall
Who is your hero and why?
My grandmother, Charlotte, because of her sense of charity, her spirituality, and her strong work ethic that I realized from a very young age.
Who was your favorite musical group during your time at OU?
Although not a group, Lady Gaga and her amazingly energetic first album
What was your favorite activity during recess in elementary school?
Trying to be first in line to go back inside, since I enjoyed learning in school more than recess.
What are you going to do when you retire?
Aside from traveling, I will hopefully have worked my way up to running a full marathon. I will also spend much of my time volunteering to help others in the community, whether at Leader Dogs for the Blind, a community food bank, my Church, and/or a local animal shelter.
