Jennifer was with Jones Soda Co. from 1995 to 2005 and from the launch of our flagship brand, Jones Soda. Over this 10 year period, she was CFO, COO and a member of the Board of Directors. In late 2005, she left to live abroad and then pursued other business interests, and in June 2012 has rejoined as the CEO of Jones Soda.
Outside of Jones, Jennifer loves to run, learn new languages, eat carbonara and spend time with her family.
I love my job, and feel so fortunate to be working with such an amazing brand - it really is by the people and for the people. Please keep sending in your photos, quotes, and flavor ideas!
When I’m not at the office, my other passions include family, cooking, music, and craft beer. So, coming home on a Friday night after a productive week of selling Jones, putting on an old Willie Nelson record on the turntable, slathering some homemade barbecue sauce on a rack of ribs, and pouring a cold draft beer into a chilled glass pretty much sums up the perfect day for me!
EVP US Sales
Steve is a powerhouse brand-builder! Previously President and CEO of Exclusive Distribution (2006-2015) he built Vita Coco in five New York City boroughs before the brand moved to Dr. Pepper Snapple Group. He also was instrumental in building Vitamin Water and several other brands during his time with Big Geyser. He is thrilled to be Jones + Lemoncocco!
Short story... I'm your friendly numbers nerd. Longer story... Passion is contagious. I'm driven by relationships and results. Jones Soda is the perfect place for me. Family & friends, running, skiing, Stephen King novels, anything written by Michael Lewis, Fantasy Baseball, cheesy pre-2004 pop-punk music, Husky football, IPA.
I am part of a hard working team. We do work. We do it for the feeling we obtain & because we’re in search of something. We want to relive some great moment we had in the past. Moreover, it’s also to create some other incredible moment like the last one but more intense. As long as we reach our limits... but who knows where those are? Our realm is when we are together against a new dare. It can be anywhere, on snowboards, at the ballpark, in water, in the air... or at the office doing work.

When I'm not out selling Jones Soda and Lemomcocco, you can usually catch me performing improv comedy in New York City or Long Island. I love my family, my dog, making people laugh, being the center of attention, and challenges. And yes, I'm down to chill. Put on some good tunes and fire up the grill. I'll bring the brews (Jones).

Area Manager - Illinois
I’m very proud to be an American. My parents were both born in Italy, and Italy was close to being my native country. I Love Love Italy to visit, but only to visit. America is the greatest country on earth! I’ve been in the food business my entire working career, and am loving being part of The Jones family. There is a happy, enthusiastic and fun vibe coming from the staff, that I haven’t felt in a work environment in a very long time. I especially love the idea of being on the ground floor of something so incredible - Lemoncocco. I look forward to being part of crafting it into a household name! Off time, I love spending time with my son, cooking, trying new restaurants, exercising so I can try new restaurants!
Having worked closely with Jennifer and Eric at Jones Soda Company in my previous life as a VP Business Development, N. America, I’m super excited to be part of the Jones Soda Business Development Dream Team.
I’m helping to expand both the Jones Soda brand and Lemoncocco brand throughout N.American strategic accounts and having so much fun working with such a dynamic team of brand building gurus.
When I’m not helping to build new business, I am a curious learner of new things such as neuro-marketing and social impact consumerism. I love spending time and traveling to new places with my family, baking up bundles of comfort food for my loved ones and zoning out with yoga. OM Shanti. Namaste
