Campus Minister

Hi, I am Rev. Jessica Dayson!

I started as the campus minister at UNC Asheville in July 2015. I attended Duke Divinity School and I am an ordained elder in the Western NC Conference of the United Methodist Church. I love the mountains, coffee, baking, chocolate and binge watching Netflix.  My husband, Darryl,  is also a pastor and we have a son named Malachi.

I would love to get to know you!

Feel free to call or text me at 828-458-8848 or email me at
