Though Jazzmine Espitia was born in Eureka, she has called Gridley home since the age of three. Graduating from Gridley High in 2013 she received her Associates Degree in Social/Behavioral Sciences at Butte College.

Though nursing is her first choice in a future career, she enjoys public safety and may find herself sticking with this after spending a lot of time at the Gridley-Biggs Police Department as their newest Dispatcher.

She is the daughter of Chris and Christi Vieira and enjoys spending time with her family and boyfriend Mason, hunting and hiking.

Lt. Scott Smallwood told the audience at the January 16, 2018 Council meeting that he recruited Jazzmine from Starbucks when he noticed how hard a worker she was and able to take on many tasks at once.
