Jamasee M. Simms


Even as a child, Jay Simms found something she loved in planning events and a passion for helping others. With her eye on the future, she earned a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice before going on to earn her master’s in Communication. Combining both passions, she founded J. Simms Events and Marketing and has over 10 years of professional event planning and communication experience. Jay also has a dedication to philanthropic work. While crafting brand stories with a masterful use of PR and executing unique events, Jay has also mentored youth and speaks to groups about entrepreneurship and the criminal justice system, particularly life after incarceration and how to use communication techniques to build a personal brand.

Jay has executed campaigns and events in various industries, from beauty to finance to nonprofits. Her work has been featured on Fox 5 DC, Let's Talk Live DC, Wake Up Washington, Great Day Washington, and more! Jay’s hope is to continue to elevate brands across the DMV area and use her connections to positively impact the lives of those in her community and beyond.
