Jessica Sobie Henderhan

National Sales Manager
aka Human Golden Retriever

Jessica spends her days identifying and pursuing groups and organizations that hold meetings or conventions, and then convincing them that Grand Rapids/Kent County is the perfect host destination for producing a memorable event. She knows what it takes to stage a successful event from her tenures with three of the area’s finest hospitality establishments: the Amway Grand Plaza, Curio Collection by Hilton (where she was a sales coordinator), Delta Hotels by Marriot Grand Rapids Airport (catering sales manager) and Reserve Wine & Food (private events manager).

Brimming with warm, friendly, positive energy – she likes to refer to herself as a “human golden retriever” – Jessica is thrilled to show off our city and county to potential clients. And if you need any dining suggestions while you’re here, she’s an expert – she graduated from GR’s Secchia Institute for Culinary Education and is a Level 1 Wine Sommelier.

Bio Bits:

  • A big fan of the West Village Double Cheeseburger from Butcher’s Union – “the best cheesy, greasy, messy burger you could ever want.”
  • Recommends the New York Sour from Reserve Wine & Food. “Perfectly balanced and hits the spot!”
  • Her favorite local concert venue is The Intersection – “they bring in a lot of really great bands and are always reasonably priced.”

Jessica’s favorite travel companions are her husband, Steve, and their dog, Annie, whether for a long drive to Munising in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula or a short jaunt to our own Belknap Park Lookout to enjoy “the best sunset view in the city.”
