Jes Gordon’s namesake company jesGORDON/properFUN provides high end, personal event design and management with loads of signature style. Her first book, Party Like A Rock Star…The Celebrity Party Planner’s Tips and Tricks For Throwing An Unforgettable Bash provides everyone, regardless of their budget, with the tools to throw the party of their dreams.
Jes stumbled into the industry at only 13 years old as an assistant to a floral designer. She went on to open a contemporary art gallery and flower shop in Taos, New Mexico, and then moved to New Orleans to work on set designs for films, including Interview with a Vampire and Dead Man Walking. In 1992, Jes accepted an offer to become the Events and Décor Director for New York City’s famous Tavern on the Green. Her work there led to private commissions for celebrities including Madonna, Barbara Streisand, and Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Jes has since applied her eye for design and passion for the unexpected to building her own event design and production firm. She has created captivating corporate events for Target, Tommy Hilfiger, Nissan, Budweiser, Rowenta, Swatch, King World Media, Lifetime Channel, among many others. She also continues to dazzle brides and socialites alike with dream-like weddings and private affairs.
