Growing up in a small town in Northeast Ohio, I was raised a diehard Cleveland sports fan with a love for the outdoors.
I’m Jocelyn Pearce, a senior at Otterbein University, pursuing a degree in finance, with minors in sports communication and mathematics. Currently, I am the co-chair of Otterbein’s Colleges Against Cancer/Relay for Life Committee, a volunteer with Otterbein service programs such as Sports Pals and Best of Both Worlds, a member of Otterbein’s honors fraternity Alpha Lambda Delta/Phi Eta Sigma, a member of Otterbein’s honors society Torch and Key, and I am also a part of Otterbein’s Sisters in Leadership organization.
My love for Cleveland sports can actually be traced back to 1985, long before I was born. My parents began going on dates to Browns games after Bernie Kosar was drafted, and the rest is history. I guess you could say if the Browns hadn’t drafted Bernie, I would not be here today. With that being said, to this day, Cleveland sports remain one of my family’s shared loves.
In the future I hope to find a job combining sports and finance, but for now I am following my passion for sports and my dream to visit every major league baseball stadium. Check out my blog about baseball stadiums Jocelyn’s Field Of Dreams or learn more about me: Resume.
