DHS is the state’s largest agency, serving well over one million people with an annual budget of $11 billion and more than 6,500 employees throughout the state. The department provides or administers a broad range of services, including health care, economic assistance, child welfare services, and services for the elderly and people with disabilities.

Prior to joining DHS, Jesson was an associate professor of law at the Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul where she also founded and served as director of the Health Law Institute. She also taught at William Mitchell College of Law and at the University of St. Thomas Business School.

Jesson served in government at both the state and county levels. As chief deputy Hennepin County attorney, she worked on mental health, child support, child protection, and juvenile justice issues. She served as Minnesota deputy attorney general, representing DHS and other health-related agencies on a broad range of issues.

In addition, Jesson has extensive private sector experience, both as a partner in the law firm of Oppenheimer Wolff & Donnelly LLP, and in her own private practice, Jesson & Pust P.A. She earned a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Arkansas and a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

She is married to Peter Knapp and has four sons.
