Brian Fessler, CJE *
Serving the Tri-State area
Brian enjoys the day-to-day interaction with advisers and staffs to help create a publication that the students, staff and their community can be proud of. He knows the demands on students and advisers and also know they work on their yearbook any hour they get a chance. He believes it is his job to be there for them.
In 2015 he earned his CJE certification and he continues to learn in order to keep up to date on the ever changing landscape of journalism and design.
Brian is a single father of two awesome children and he enjoys spending as much time with them as possible.

This sort of service is unheard of!
Brian immediately volunteered to come in each day and assist in teaching my new staffers. This sort of service is unheard of in this industry!

Brian is more than a rep, he’s a friend
Brian is not only our yearbook representative, but I consider him a friend. I can call, email or text him at night, on the weekends, whenever, and I can expect a response with 24-48 hours. He is a most dependable representative with good judgment and an optimistic outlook, which helps me to take a logical and practical approach to our yearbook experience.
