Jurick, who serves as director of client development at Chicago-based agency rEvolution, works with clients on media buys and placement in national and regional outlets. She previously worked at the National Sports Forum following an internship during her undergraduate tenure.
“I remember hearing speakers talk about the SBJ in classes at Mount Union, so it is pretty surreal to be recognized in a listing like this,” Jurick said.
Jurick continues to give back to Mount Union, including speaking with an Introduction to Sport Business class on campus about her industry experience just two days after the SBJ recognition was announced.
SBJ and a panel of 26 outside judges selected Jurick and the other 29 honorees out of a pool of more than 200 nominees. A celebratory event will be held in New York City in November, alongside a special section in the print and digital versions of the SBJ.
