Success Story - Jessica Gonzalez

Success Stories


As the lead for the Chamber’s Mentoring Program, I have the privilege of collaborating with interns and mentees from Lamar State College Port Arthur, Texas Workforce Solutions, Port Arthur Independent School District, and other workforce experience entities.

One of our greatest success stories here at the chamber has been a young lady named, Ms. Jessica Gonzalez.

Born and raised in Southeast Texas, Jessica was introduced to The Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce by the Texas Workforce Solutions Program.

“Jessica has been one of the most influential parts of our Mentoring and Internship Program. She was instrumental in helping to develop the curriculum that we use throughout the training process with our incoming mentees. She has time and time again, come back in her spare time to help the Port Arthur Education Foundation with projects like processing Innovative Teacher Grants, issuing scholarships, and helping with events. She has helped the Chamber with Internship Training Modules, Program Implementations that are necessary to help the new incoming interns and being an all-around positive role model.

It is truly a fantastic feeling to know that Jessica is about to walk through the door and take charge.”

The chamber is very proud to learn that SETEX Construction, a chamber member, has hired Jessica in their local office. We want to wish Jessica all the best in her future endeavors and express our sincere gratitude for her guidance and help throughout the years.
