Jessica Otte

Executive Editor, D Home, D Weddings

Jessica Otte is the executive editor of D Home and D Weddings. In 2006, she helped launch D CEO as its founding managing editor, and in the years since, she’s written about celebrities (ask her about her life-changing breakfast with Jon Hamm), travel, and too many fascinating locals to count. She has absolutely no willpower when it comes to unnecessary housewares, which is a hazard of her job. She lives in Lake Highlands with her husband, Charlie, and their three children.
