Meet Jessica Buckman

The North Texas Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is thrilled to introduce its newest addition to the Special Events department.  Meet Jessica Buckman.  She is joining LLS as a campaign specialist and will be working out of the Dallas office.  Jessica will be working on the Big D Climb event as well as the Man Woman of the Year Campaign. Read below as this dynamic woman introduces herself.

"I am so excited to be a new member of the LLS North Texas family! It has always been my dream to work for a cancer research non- profit in their special events department and I can’t believe my dream has finally come true!

As a native of Dallas, I first fell in love with serving others during a semester long service project for a local elementary school my senior year at Bishop Lynch High School.  I continued this experience by dedicating my college spring breaks to week long service trips. These trips allowed me to impact lives in Louisiana, by helping with Hurricane Katrina relief, and in Mississippi, where I volunteered at an early Head Start Program.

I graduated from Texas A&M University back in 2014 where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Communications. After I graduated, I moved to Austin, TX where I worked for a non-profit named Phoenix Arising, that taught after school and summer STEM classes to underprivileged youth in Travis County.

Two years later I am back in Dallas and I am so excited to see what lies ahead with LLS!”

We are happy to have Jessica as part of the North Texas LLS family.  Reach out and introduce yourself.  She can be contacted at or (972) 996-5929.
