“I love the light. We all have cracks, and without the cracks we wouldn’t be able to see the light come through, nobody’s perfect.”


Hello and welcome,
I am Jessica Word. As the CEO of the award-winning Word & Brown Agency, my journey has been fueled by passion, tenacity, and an unwavering mission aimed at empowering and uplifting those around me.
I deeply believe in the power of community and the role each of us plays in shaping it. Serving on the California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber) Board of Directors and engaging with initiatives like the Center for Leadership at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF), I’ve actively worked to make a positive impact both within the business realm and beyond.
It’s been an honor to be recognized with awards like the Excellence in Leadership Development from CSUF’s College of Business and Economics. My heart lies in mentorship, and with platforms like the CSUF Titan Women’s Collective, I’m privileged to guide emerging leaders. This passion is further showcased in events I’ve joined, such as the “Connected Women of Influence” in 2019.
Outside of the professional sphere, my family is my anchor. Their continuous love and support have been my strength throughout—from my humble beginnings in the mailroom to the leadership positions I’ve been honored to hold. Accolades from organizations like the Orange County Business Journal and the National Association of Benefits and Insurance Professionals drive me to set even higher standards for myself.
With a degree in Business Administration from California State University, Fullerton, and as a Registered Health Underwriter, I’ve built a solid foundation. But more than accolades and titles, it’s my dedication to people, my enthusiasm for innovation, and my genuine desire to help others thrive that define who I am.
Having been honored with the Monaco 40 under 40 accolade, I see myself as more than just a business leader. I strive to be a steward of resilience and transformative leadership in all that I do. If you ever feel the need for guidance, inspiration, or simply a conversation, I’m here.
Looking to know more or considering collaboration? Let’s explore the possibilities together. Connecting with you is truly a pleasure.
Warm Regards,
Jessica Word

“You only have one life to live, and if you’re a leader, your people are actually living their lives to support you and reverse. So, show up for them and show up for yourself. Remember, as human beings, we are not here to feel better. We’re here to be better feelers.”
