Jessica Delos Reyes is the Media and Public Relations Manager for USA Shooting, the national governing body for the Olympic shooting sports, based in Colorado Springs, Colo. A relative newbie on the job—she started on April 1, 2013—Delos Reyes is discovering the finer aspects of the sport of shooting from the finest shooters in the world.
Before coming to USA Shooting, this Montana native worked in media and marketing for USA Cycling and for a sports arena and performing arts venue. She also did a stint on the college hockey beat for a Colorado Springs newspaper.
“I originally wanted to learn how to shoot when I got here to really get a better understanding of the sport and what my athletes do. I never could have dreamed how much I’d learn,” said Delos Reyes. She recalled her fourth day on the job. “I was out on the line here at the Olympic Training Center with 2012 Olympian Frank Thompson, who showed me how to shoot an air rifle, and later that night with our Junior Club learning how to shoot an air pistol. Who gets an Olympian to teach them a new sport? How could I pass up an opportunity like that?”
