I remember the first call I got from my wife about Jessica Starr. It was in 2012. She called to tell me that the new meteorologist on one of the local stations had been a good friend of hers from high school. They’d lost touch after high school, but reconnected on Facebook. Jessica always wanted to be a meteorologist, so how cool was it that she was doing it right back in her hometown? I remember asking my wife if Starr was her real name or if she changed it for TV. Turns out it was her real name. That’s a name meant for TV, if you ask me!
Over The Years
Over the years, it was fun to watch her on TV. She did the weather in the mornings. The TV in our work break room is usually tuned to this channel, so I saw her quite regularly. Over the years, she twice got bigger and bigger, and then was gone for several months. Yep, she had two kids. Just like our kids, it was a boy and a girl, just about two years apart. They were a bit younger than ours, but it was fun to see her family grow as ours had.
