An avid traveler and founder of her own boutique travel company called Global Jet Black, the Detroit-native is more than halfway through her journey having already visited more than 100 countries and territories on six continents. Once Jessica completes her ambitious goal, she will be the first black woman on record to visit every country in the world.
