Jessica LeClerc ’04 Off to the Winter Olympics

Margaret Temesvari – December 19, 2017

Congratulations to Jessica LeClerc’04, who was one of nineteen women selected worldwide to officiate women’s hockey in the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea this February. Jessica had a passion for skating from the young age of 8, and started officiating youth games at the age of 12 in her home state of Maine. These days she officiates North American Hockey League and NCAA Division III men’s games as she continues to challenge herself, which is certainly paying off! She was the only American among the nine linesmen selected to officiate the eight-team women’s tournament in South Korea.
