Jake & Jessie Jane, Mascots
Jake and Jessie Jane are FAN EXPERIENCES’ mascots. They carry many functions for FAN EXPERIENCES. They often greet each staff member with a wagging tail every day when they arrive. They double check during the day to make sure the staff is taking breaks & eating during the day. They often remind the staff they would always accept any of their left overs. Their best feature is that they guard the office and become FAN EXPERIENCES’ security late at night when the staff is burning the midnight oil. But most of the time, you can find them laying under the boss’ desk sleeping at her feet.
