Jessica Embry’s story is a tale of her father’s lasting impact and realizing as an adolescent the need for people to help other people.
Embry, 40, lives in Carrollton with her husband and two daughters. She said her large family has always been an inspiration to her career and personal life, especially after watching her father, Jackie Hughes, and working with her cousin who has Down syndrome.
