I’m excited to welcome back to the podcast Jennisue Jessen! Today it’s all about the power of faith in work!
In this episode of the She Impacts Culture Podcast, Jennisue shares her personal journey of combining her faith and work. She reflects on how her faith provides her with hope and comfort while she works towards impacting culture. Jennisue also shares her experiences in growing and strengthening her faith during tough times and trials. She discusses her difficulties in incorporating her faith into her work and offers advice to those looking to use their faith to bring about impactful change in the world. Jennisue tells the moving story of a generous donor who offered her a million dollars to focus her marketing efforts for Compass 31 solely on humanitarian efforts. Her response? “Without Jesus, there is no story.”
Jennisue’s story is a testament to faith’s transformative power in our personal and professional lives. Her unwavering commitment to her faith and mission reminds us of the importance of staying true to our values and beliefs, no matter the challenges.

With more than 25 years of experience in the field of human trafficking, Jennisue Jessen knows intimately the depths of trauma a body can endure. She was sold into the sex trade at age 4 by her grandfather, but God provided for her rescue and escape after a failed suicide attempt at age 17. Through the years of brutality, justice was woven into her DNA. Rather than being defined by her traumatic childhood, Jennisue uses her lived experience to inform and ignite cultural and systemic impact in the counter-trafficking movement. She is passionate about inspiring others to transform their own trauma into triumphant joy.
Jennisue is the Founder & CEO of Compass 31, an international counter-trafficking organization, and the creator of Echoes of Eden Collective, a social enterprise that funds her charitable work through a luxury, vegan skincare line.
On January 5, 2021, Jennisue was appointed by President Trump to serve a 2-year term on the U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking, where she utilizes her experience to help inform federal counter-trafficking policy.
