Jess has been receiving support from Crosslinks for over 10 years. Jess lives with his Mum (Rose) and Dad (Mark) and their two dogs Charlie and Wallace. Jess is fun-loving, kind, and is always willing to help out whenever he can. He has a great sense of humour and really likes laughing with his friends.
Jess is active and enjoys various sports especially basketball, football and swimming. He has a passion for music and you often hear Jess humming along during the day, playing air guitar, or singing his heart out at karaoke. He always has CDs on hand to play his favourite tunes in the car. He also loves hip hop dancing and busting out breakdancing moves.
Jess attends the Crosslinks RAP Social Club and enjoys activities such as playing pool, going out for dinner, mini-golf, pizza nights, movies, karaoke and community events. He especially enjoys dressing up and attending the RAP Social Club discos. The Halloween Disco is a particular favourite. Jess works two days a week but always stores his energy for a RAP night out.
Jess is a massive fan of AC/DC and attended The Australian AC/DC Tribute Show at the Grand Hotel in Midland. Jess explained how much he loved the concert and at karaoke the following week, he was able to sing the songs like a rockstar.
The RAP Social Club is really important to Jess as he gets to see his friends and engage in the community. Jess also receives support from Crosslinks’ Community Inclusion services.
