We are a for profit business. Yet we also recognize that to whom much is given, much is expected. To that end, every thing WE do has a giving back component. We are proud to offer financial contributions, supply donations, and publicity to Chicago based not for profit organizations each month.

Paying it forward. Designing an eye-catching backdrop for a fundraiser. Hosting a donation drive or community event. WE donate a portion of all of our services to one of our designated charities each month. WE are expert event planners - ensuring that every facet of your unique celebration runs smoothly. WE also are committed to paying this joy forward. 

Spreading joy.

Simply said, it’s all about having fun while doing good. 

Working towards a more compassionate Chicago.

about us

Hi! I'm Jessie! I am a life long Chicagoan who lives with my partner, newly teenage daughter and 3 rescue dogs in Logan Square. I am  passionate about giving back to others and having a positive impact on our city.

For the last 2 decades, I have focused on planning unique, fun and engaging large group activities, corporate gatherings, fundraisers, personal celebrations and more. I would consider myself incredibly creative and a bit type A which allows my attention to detail shine through every event I am a part of. I love bringing events to life with creative design and unique details that are personal to each client and couple.

I also have a deep history of active involvement with many Chicago nonprofit organizations. I have served as a regular volunteer, director and founder. I created WE EVENTS because I want people to realize that giving back can be fun and easy.

Meet Jessie: The Heart Behind We Events

I take zero salary the first year and instead donate it all to charity. 

I pivot back to full and partial event planning. I finally figure out a work/life balance. Having fun, doing good and living my best creative life with the best clients. 

My business is just starting to take off and then the pandemic hits. I pivot to balloons and backdrops and then I pivot to event activations. I'm working 24/7 and starting to lose my mind. 

Jason, my partner tells me to do something I love that incorporates using my creativity and love of community. So I take a huge risk and start an event planning business with a charitable side. I start with crafts and fundraisers. 

After 5 years of staying home with my daughter I decide it's time for my next adventure. I got a job working at a  startup. 3 months later I leave that toxic job crying and feeling like staying home with a kid ruined my career.
