Meet Jessie

Jessie Overstreet, age 9, is a 4th grader from Atlanta who enjoys tumbling and gymnastics, running, dancing, and playing the Wii. She also craves the limelight and wants to be in a commercial or music video one day. Her favorite TV shows are "American Idol," "America’s Got Talent," "American Ninja Warrior," and Disney shows including "Jessie." She loves the music of Scotty McCreery and Garth Brooks. Jessie doesn’t hesitate to tell others about her experience with cystic fibrosis and the treatments she receives at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, where we’ve established a Child Life Zone that she regularly enjoys. In July 2012, Jessie was our guest at the Teammates Appreciation Party in Las Vegas, where she received an award for her courage and her willingness to educate others about cystic fibrosis.
