With more than 20 years of experience in the field of human trafficking, Jenni Jessen knows the depths of trauma a body can endure. She was sold into the commercial sex trade at age four by her grandfather but God provided for her rescue and escape at age 17.
Jenni and her husband, KJ founded Compass 31 in 2011 in response to the unfolding of redemption in their own lives. Compass 31 provides a holistic model of restoration that includes safe housing, educational scholarships and discipleship for young women who have been rescued from exploitation. For more than 8 years, they provided foster care to teenage mothers and babies rescued from the sex trade.
In cooperation with Compassion International, e3 Partners and International Justice Mission, Jenni and KJ created Priceless Cube in 2012. Since that time, they have equipped national leaders from more than 40 different countries to effectively combat human trafficking through education. To date, tens of thousands of people globally have heard this high-impact prevention message.
Their beautiful and crazy family includes 6 different people groups and a dog named Ransom.
