Know Your Neighbor ~ Jessop's

The Jessop Family

Camille and Doug Jessop have lived in our neighborhood for almost six years.  They really like living here in Centerville.

Camille grew up in Bountiful as the second of six children and the oldest daughter in her family.  She graduated from Bountiful High School.  She then attended Utah State University and graduated in family and human development.  Camille enjoys reading history,  doing genealogy, traveling, getting to know people, and most recently being a grandma!  Her current calling in the ward is Relief Society chorister and she is enjoying this new challenge.

Doug grew up in Southern California as the oldest of four children and the only son in his family.  He graduated from California High School where he was in the chess club and participated in track and field.  He then attended Utah State University where he was on the debate team.  He was also a disc jockey for the campus radio station and at a local country station.  He graduated in broadcast management and business administration.  Doug works as a Senior Account Manager at Channel 4 Television (which also owns channel 30).  He enjoys gardening and working in the yard (he has an amazing back yard), classic cars, history, aquariums, collecting hats, and being a grandpa.  Doug is currently a financial clerk in the ward.

Camille and Doug met while they were both attending Utah State.  They met at a Relief Society homemaking meeting (not many couples can say that).  They started dating after Camille's roommate sent a Christmas card to Doug and signed her and Camille's names on it.  when Doug returned to school after Christmas break, he called Camille and asked her out.  They were married in the Salt Lake Temple a year and a half later.

Camille and Doug have four children.  Their oldest son, Michael and his wife Allison, live in Roy with their daughter Natalia, who is five months old.  Their daughter, Michelle and her husband Steven, live in Ohio where she is attending pharmacy school.  Their daughter Celise, is currently living in Logan and planning to move home to Centerville in July.  Their son, David and his wife Camas, live in Bountiful and are expecting their first child in November.  Camille and Doug also have a sweet dog named Molly, who is very friendly and wholeheartedly defends her territory.

As a family, the Jessop's like to get together for dinner or a barbecue to celebrate holidays and special occasions.  Camille and Doug love to travel together.  They also make it a point to go on a weekly date together.

We are happy to have the 
Jessop family in our neighborhood!
