Member Spotlight

Each month, the Junior League of Tucson strives to recognize a member (or members) for their dedication and outstanding contribution!

September 2017:  Jessica Depugh, Community Impact Committee Member

Jessica is consistently involved in her committee work, going above and beyond what is asked of her. She attacks every task with sweetness and a smile. She lent her professional skills to create an entire one hour long presentation for the Junior League to present to the community. THEN she faced her discomfort of speaking in public to present this topic not only once but twice! After speaking for nearly two hours straight, she stayed late at the Community Impact event to pitch in and help fill volunteer shifts so the event could finish seamlessly. Jessica DePugh is a shining example of the volunteerism, leadership, and personal/professional development that this League strives to promote.

August 2017: Anita Chapin McGuire, Development Committee Chair

Nominated by her entire committee because “She is extraordinary because she is not ordinary, She is the epitome of integrity and honesty. She exudes beauty in her confidence, yet a humility that keeps her grounded. She is someone who is extremely gentle yet strong in her convictions. She will never judge based on popularity- instead, she leads with her own wisdom and discernment. She is someone to believe in, lean on and learn from. She is genuine and compassionate on a level that makes me feel safe in her space. She is a loyal friend, my daughter loves her and ………. she makes amazing carrot cake muffins- with the cheesecake frosting!” – Maria Strazulla Katz
