Jess Martínez

UX Designer & Writer


Jess Martínez (she/her) is a Chicago-based user experience (UX) designer, stand-up comedian, and producer. As a chronically single, female, Mexican-American, middle child with dark curly hair who was born a size 16, Jess understands what not being heard feels like, so it’s a personal mission of hers to make sure everyone’s voice is accounted for. Her background in art, fundraising, comedy, and event production makes her an unflappable designer of delightful experiences. Her roles as Associate Producer at Las Locas Comedy and Assistant Producer at The Moth StorySLAM Chicago are proof.
