Jaclyn Stapp

Raised in a close-knit family by her widowed mother, Jaclyn Nesheiwat Stapp is one of five children who learned early in life the value of hard work. Born in New York and raised in Florida, Jaclyn is a southern girl at heart who overall enjoys life especially acting and competing in pageants since age 13. With a great passion for TV and modeling, Jaclyn had an unbridled energy to set goals and attain them. She graduated from Stetson University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and communication. Throughout her college years, she worked several jobs including part time at Disney World, portraying Aladdin’s character Jasmine, modeling, and working on a mobile marketing tour. She traveled extensively across the country and across the globe, hosting events, serving as a spokesmodel, managing marketing sports tours, judging pageants and promoting philanthropy.

Jaclyn also dedicates time to humanitarian projects, presenting motivational addresses to high school students in New York City and working with inner-city youth through Stetson University’s “Into the Streets Program” for at-risk students. During her reign as Miss New York USA, Jaclyn’s most memorable experience was visiting the U.S. troops in Iraq at the invitation of the White House Provisional Coalition. Jaclyn traveled to Baghdad spending time with our soldiers, visiting an Iraqi orphanage and meeting with brave female members of Iraq’s Governing Council to discuss human rights. She has described her journey as “a humbling and profound experience that I will never forget.”

Jaclyn was recently crowned Mrs. Florida America 2008, and placed 1st runner up in Mrs. America. Jaclyn keeps busy traveling to different locations for fashion photo shoots, working on her favorite charity, and traveling on the road with her Grammy-winning rocker husband.

Her life’s motto is to inspire and be inspired. She adds, “I am blessed with an amazing family. I believe in leading by example and hope I can inspire others to have the confidence to believe in themselves, set their goals of life, and above all never give up.”
