Jessica Kidd

Founder of Gracie's Gowns, Inc.

Jessica Kidd founded the nonprofit Gracie’s Gowns to donate personalized hospital gowns to children battling life-threatening conditions. With years spent working in pediatric emergency services, Jessica realized that children would often go without clothing due to the limited sizing and harsh texture of hospital gowns. Inspired by Grace, a friend’s child battling pediatric cancer, Jessica began creating and donating customized gowns in kid-friendly sizes and materials. Jessica was recognized among the L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth in 2016 for bringing joy to parents and children in some of their darkest moments.
