Jessica “Jess” Cash pursued a career in law out of a strong desire to help people. First as a prosecutor and now as a personal injury lawyer, she has helped hundreds of clients seek justice and fair treatment during some of their most trying times.
Cash joined Fuicelli & Lee in November 2011 and earned the title of Partner in February 2018 after a stellar track record representing clients throughout the northern Colorado region. She leads the staff of our Longmont office and also assists clients at the Denver office.
Prior to joining the firm, she served as a Deputy District Attorney for Jefferson County, Colorado, prosecuting individuals for misdemeanor and felony crimes. She enjoyed her six years as a prosecutor and took more than 50 cases to trial during that time.
Along with Keith Fuicelli, Jess Cash also brings a unique and personal perspective to her personal injury cases. A couple of years after the birth of her first child, doctors determined through a brain MRI that her son was born with a mild case of a rare metabolic disorder. While still struggling to understand this diagnosis, Jess’ mom unexpectedly and tragically died at the young age of 50.
Soon after that, Jess resigned from the DA’s office to focus her attention on her son’s needs and therapy. While there is no cure for her son’s brain condition, he is now 18 and doing well thanks to many hours of hard work, early intervention and great therapists. Along with her son, Jess also has a young daughter who is 16. This experience with her family gave Jess a first-hand view on how an unexpected medical issue of any kind can take its toll not only on the individual but also all family members.
Jess states, “I would say that the one thing people most take for granted is their good health and that of their loved ones.”
She can also strongly empathize with anyone who has unexpectedly lost a loved one, saying, “You wake up one day and they are here and healthy. The next day, they are gone, and you never got to say goodbye. It is one of the hardest and most painful things I have ever dealt with.”
