Jess Quinn

Jess Quinn is a fitness advocate and social media influencer with over 160,000 followers on her Instagram @jessicaemilyquinn. A battle with cancer in her childhood saw her lose a leg, but her determination to overcome all adversity will no doubt see her inspire the nation on Dancing With The Stars 2018.

“Taking part in DWTS is a once in a lifetime experience,” says Jess.

“At first I thought no, there’s no way I can physically do this, but whenever I tell myself I can’t do something then I have to find a way!”

Jess grew up in Auckland, and enjoys cooking, being active, and travelling. She is currently using her expertise from her fashion and product design degree to launch her own clothing label called “BE. Your Label”.

Two years ago Jess came to the realisation that overcoming her body image struggles as an amputee put her in a unique position to help others see their potential.
