JESS3 earns notice for being one of five of DC’s hottest startups with the “Best Startup Swag.” InTheCapital gives a shout-out to JESS3 swag calling the t-shirts, “absurdly awesome and well designed to the point where you feel guilty for accepting it for free.” Along with the swag applaud, InTheCapital states JESS3 founder and CEO, Jesse Thomas as, “easily one of the coolest people you will ever meet in D.C.
