My name is Jessica Hoss and I live in Kearney with my husband, Jim, and our four amazing children: Lydia, Nathan, Christopher, and Bennett. Nathan was born profoundly deaf and uses bi-lateral cochlear implants. He uses spoken language with limited ASL support. Helping him to navigate his unique identity as a deaf person who "hears" has been and continues to be the most wonderful journey. I am a homeschooling mom to our two younger boys, as well as a Parent Guide, Outreach Coordinator, and board member for Nebraska Hands and Voices. I am passionate about literacy and social skills for D/HOH children and empowering parents to support these skills at home. I love working with families and helping them to find the resources that they need to help their children achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
