Mankato's Best Music

Middays with Jess

  • Monday-Friday 10:00am-2:00pm

Hey it’s Jess from middays on the River! I’m originally from Iowa, but I’ve spent the last 8 years here and now call Mankato home. I love spending time with my husband and kids, running, working out, reading and cooking. I’m a self-described Pinterest addict (I have the Pinterest fails to prove it!) and I hope you enjoy my daily ‘Pin of the Day’ during your lunch hour. I also love wine and long walks on the beach — wait, this isn’t that kind of website… Anyway, thanks for listening to the River at work!
