Jennifer Kessy, born July 31, 1977 in San Clemente, California is an American professional beach volleyball player on the Nivea AVP Tour. Growing up in Southern California, Jennifer excelled at multiple sports. In high school, she was the MVP of the swim team her junior year and the Captain and MVP of the volleyball team her senior year, earning honors as an All-California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) second team. In 1994, she graduated from Dana Hills High School at Dana Point, California. Kessy continued her athletic excellence while attending the University of Southern California (USC) where she was a member of the volleyball team for all four years from 1995 through 1998 and was named All-American during her senior year. She was also a member of the U.S. Junior National Team. Jennifer graduated from USC with a bachelor's degree in history.

Signing a six month contract for about $25,000, Jennifer played indoors professionally under head coach Gido Vermeulen from the Netherlands and assistant coach Christine Masel of DePaul University and the University of Illinois for the Chicago Thunder who finished runner-up (10-8) in the USPV in 2002. In November 2002 with the collapse of the USPV, she signed with Pinkin de Corozal at Humacao, Puerto Rico for the 2003 season and finished 6th overall for points in the LVSF. Kessy competed with Olympian Barbara Fontana in 2004 and Olympic Bronze Medalist and three-time Olympian Holly McPeak in 2005. Teaming up with fellow USC Trojan April Ross in 2007, the tandem has become one of the winningest duos in the world. On July 4, 2009, Kessy and Ross won the FIVB World Championships in Stavanger, Norway defeating Brazilians Juliana Felisberta Silva and Larissa Franca. As of April 2012, Kessy has ten AVP and nine FIVB 1st place finishes overall, as well as over $1,223,635 in total prize money. In the spring of 2012, Jennifer signed as a CoverGirl for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
