Jess Wilhite, Trainer

Jess has always stayed close to the game of basketball and has several years of experience, playing as well as coaching. She spent 4 years as an assistant coach/recruiting coordinator for Wisconsin-Milwaukee from 2011 - 2015. Now that she's returned to Chicagoland, she's joined a company that provides software to basketball coaches. As a college coach, Jess found one of the aspects she enjoyed most was helping develop players' skills. Having grown up in Glen Ellyn, IL and graduating from Glenbard West, she's excited to be back working with kids to help build their all-around game and teach the fun experiences basketball can bring. Jess spent 4 years playing collegiately at Wisconsin-Milwaukee and was a part of their first team to make it to the NCAA tournament. In 2011, she was inducted into the Milwaukee Athletics Hall of Fame. After college, she went on to play professionally in The Netherlands.
