Lora Jess

Senior Revenue Manager

Since 2020



I was born and raised in Bay City Michigan. My hospitality journey began in 1993 as a Front Desk Associate on the overnight shift at a Marriott Conference Center in Midland Michigan. I then worked as Reservation Sales Agent, Group Coordinator and Event Coordinator in Dallas, TX before moving to St. Louis, MO to become the Group Housing Team Leader for the Renaissance Grand and Suites hotels. I moved into Revenue Management in 2004. I worked with Marriott for 27 years before joining RMC.

My husband and I are almost empty nesters with a daughter pursuing a degree in Veterinarian Medicine and a son about to graduate from high school. We also have two beautiful rescue dogs. In my spare time I enjoy baking, cake decorating and traveling with my family and remaining faithful to the Detroit Redwings.
