With her passion for results and creative business sense, Jessica Cohen has proven to be a strong leader in the entertainment community.
A graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara, Jessica spent most of her college career interning with the hottest television shows including E! News Daily, EXTRA and The Rosie O’Donnell Show among others.
Jessica’s first big break into PR came from Warren Cowan & Associates where she served as an assistant working on the campaigns of such celebrities as Elizabeth Taylor, Sidney Sheldon, Aaron Spelling, CCH Pounder and corporate clients like Jenny Craig and STARZ!, among others.
After over two years at WC&A, Jessica moved to PMK/HBH where she worked on a variety of A-list celebrity campaigns including Tom Cruise, Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Tommy Lee Jones, Neve Campbell, Chris Kattan, Zooey Deschanel and Lisa Kudrow. She was promoted to publicist and worked on Carmen Electra, Courtney Love, the Hollywood History Museum, the Diamond Information Center, James Garner and Andre Braugher as well as numerous events and product launches.
Her work as a full-fledged publicist at PMK did not go unnoticed as she was quickly recruited by the Talent Department at Bragman Nyman Cafarelli (BNC) to develop their Personalities Division. Jessica represented actors such as Angela Bassett, Melissa Joan Hart, Catherine Bell, Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross before realizing that her true passion was to build and develop the careers of young, emerging talent in both film and music as well as events. It was this drive and motivation that prompted her to leave the big, corporate agency life and create her own company, JCPR.
JCPR was founded in October 2005 and prides itself on its attention to detail and individual PR strategies which are custom designed for each client. Past campaigns include Macy Gray, Paul van Dyk, Ultra Music Festival, Beautyblender and a plethora of special events. Current client roster includes Mark Ballas, Michael Ealy, Maria Kanellis, Boris Kodjoe, Nicole Ari Parker and Diana Maria Riva among others. JCPR is also partnered with ACE PR, PR Alliance, SBPR and Hired Gun Publicity all of which have offices in New York, Miami, Chicago and Nashville.
