JE Management was founded by Jessica Elliott in 2010. From conception it has always been a family! A family of real talented young people with a desire to succeed. The agency was founded in response to requests for students of sister company J’s Dance Factory to perform professionally. Back then we found that there was a distinct lack of diversity on stage and screen, we champion diversity in all we do and always have. All these years later we are proud of the eclectic mix of races, religions and backgrounds of our clients who continue to work with some of the biggest brands and the most prolific directors and producers in the world.
