Jessica Samko from Shipping Wars

Jessica Samko

Tough as nails and not afraid to tell you why, Jessica Samko is a daredevil trucker always looking for a new adventure. After listening to her ex-boyfriends brag about life on the road, Jessica decided to prove that she had what it takes to drive a big rig. JMS Transport was established and now Jessica is her own boss.

In a job predominantly filled by men, Jessica is constantly fighting for respect on the road. And while she admittedly isn’t the most experienced trucker, she will do whatever it takes to get the job done, no matter how unorthodox the methods. Whether truck loads of cattle, heavy machinery, or thousands of pounds of grain, Jessica is up for the challenge and ready to set out on the open road. What she lacks in experience she makes up for with fighting passion, ready to knock her competitors out of her way.

While she calls Pennsylvania home, you’ll usually find Jessica traveling the country with her two pugs, Wilson and Oogie.
