Jess Caze considers herself a Corvallis native being that she moved here at the age of ten. From here life has taken her to Montana for college, to Brazil post college and back again to Corvallis at the end of 2010.

She grew up playing soccer, basketball, softball, track and field and even from high school found herself desiring to coach and teach within the fitness and sport world. Over the years she has coached mostly soccer, but also softball, surfing and some basketball. She has expertise in fitness training with an educational background in Exercise Sports Science (B.S. from Oregon State University) as well as being a certified personal trainer. She began teaching group fitness when hired to teach Faculty Staff Fitness here at OSU.

Jess has always enjoyed teaching and coaching and found that there was as much or more joy in watching her students and players succeed than having her own personal success on the field.

Jess’ personal coaching and teaching philosophy is to inspire growth in others through  holistic physical and mental skill building by simultaneously pushing herself to become a better coach, role model and leader.    

Jess is married to Brazilian national Claudio CazĂ© and has two children, Zeph, 14 and Keelie, 12. They lived in Brazil from 2004-2010 where both kids were born.  In her spare time she likes to spend time at the beach, surfing, playing and coaching soccer, and being with friends and family.
