Jissella just may be our biggest sports fan! You can find her and the kids in the stands cheering on dad at his softball games. She enjoys attending baseball games when her favorite team, the Atlanta Braves, is in town to take on the Washington Nationals. She is a DC United soccer fan, as well as a Baltimore Ravens football fan. Yes, she wears purple on Fridays! Jissella learned to love the game of football thanks to her son and fiancé. When the Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2012 they attended Pride in Baltimore, an experience she will never forget. GO Ravens!
