Founder @ Memphis Coalition for Life
Jessie Wade is the Founder and former Executive Director of Memphis Coalition for Life. She was called to pro-life work in 2015 after seeing the undercover Center for Medical Progress videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s horrendous sale of fetal body parts. Inspired by the success of the Southwest Coalition for Life in shutting down the abortion facility in Las Cruces, NM—in 2018, Jessie founded the Coalition and designed a highly successful sidewalk advocacy and community outreach program in Memphis which resulted in over 300 abortion turnaways in just two years. By God’s grace, the Coalition unified a previously splintered pro-life community.
These days you can find Jessie using her organization and management skills to homeschool her 3 living children and run her household as a full-time wife and mom. She serves on the board of Memphis Coalition for Life and consults for other pro-life communities. In her “free time” she lifts heavy things, spends time with her husband, and reads everything she can get her hands on.
