Jessica Rogan’s Rags to Riches Career
Jessica Rogan had a rough start to her career. However, this wasn’t really bad as she considered this as a normal stage in anyone’s life. As soon as she graduated college at university, she started her career working as a cocktail waitress.
She wanted to make both ends meet as she wants to make a name for herself, and not just be in the shadows of her famous comedian father. Because of this, she was constantly looking for a better job while working hard as a cocktail waitress.
Her interest in TV shows had a huge effect on her. Soon after, she decided that she needs to use her father’s connections to somehow improve her career. This bore fruit, and later, she became one of the assistants on the famous animated comedy show, “The Simpsons.”
Jessica worked as the production assistant of the animated series for 15 episodes. Aside from that, she also took the role as production assistant in the documentary film, “Hollywood and Divine: Beauty Secrets Revealed.”

By May 2010, Jessica became a model for EM Model Management, a Chinese modeling company. Things started out great for her. However, she soon realized that becoming a model wasn’t her calling and swiftly lost interest.

She continued working as a model for different companies soon after. Though she wasn’t really happy with it, it still did a lot of good to her. Well, it’s because it was where she met Joe Rogan.
By 2010, Jessica and Joe married each other. And by 2013, she started working as a product analyst at Volvo Motorsports. She still works on that position up until this day.
