Jess King

The First Mate

Jess holds the entire team together. She fixes broken gear and comforts the families of victims. She rallies the troops and helps explain what’s at stake. We see her mobilize the response, then hold down the fort at incident command. This year, her personal life at home stands in stark contrast to her buttoned-down routine at the TCSAR hangar. For Jess, home life feels scattered while TCSAR remains a well-oiled machine. This year, Jess wants to sharpen her crisis leadership skills and get more involved with the hands-on work of rescues.
