2020 FAIR SUPPORTERS OF THE YEAR
John and LouAnn Jess
The Miami County Agricultural Society has the pleasure of introducing Mr. and Mrs. John (LouAnn) Jess.
John and LouAnn have been lifelong residents of Miami County involved with our fair since their childhoods while being involved with 4-H and going on to raise their two children Mike and Jane with the same love of community and the Miami County Fair. Even now they enjoy attending fair 4-H shows watching their two grandchildren Colin and Casey compete. Their children and grandchildren taking part in the Junior and Senior Fair Boards as well. The Jess family continues to be a part of the Miami County Fair, LouAnn working in the fair office,art and craft hall, judging and also volunteering in the Cove Springs Grange kitchen. John can be found driving shuttle during fair week for patrons that need assistance moving about the fair and can also be found picking up loose trash to keep the grounds clean. Both LouAnn and John are eager to help wherever they are needed. They have spent their lives giving to our community and the Miami County Fair and in turn we believe they deserve recognition as our Outstanding Fair Supporters of the Year.
