Jill Gossett joins CEA as Director of Corporate Acquisition, focusing on growing Corporate Partnerships. She will work on building relationships with S-Corp and C-Corp business leaders, educating them about how easy it is to participate, and asking them to redirect their Arizona tax liability to support student scholarships.

Jill grew up in Burr Ridge, Illinois (a southwest suburb of Chicago), and spent summers in Scotland at her ancestral home (5 miles south of St. Andrews, the Home of Golf). Her family occasionally escaped to Phoenix for a break from the harsh Chicago winters. Later, Jill attended and graduated from Arizona State University with a B.A. in Political Science and studied Broadcast Journalism.

Before joining CEA, Jill’s career was in broadcast media sales management, advertising, and marketing, working in major media markets including Chicago, Washington DC, Jacksonville, Grand Rapids, and Phoenix for the past 18 years. She’s worked at CBS Radio, Clear Channel Radio & Outdoor, Univision Radio & TV, NBC 12NEWS, and others.

Jill is an adult converted Catholic, as is her husband, Kevin Gossett. Both entered the Catholic faith on the same day and year, but in separate states, before they met! They learned this while working together at WGRD AM/FM in Grand Rapids, Michigan where Kevin was the Program Director / Morning Show Host and Jill was in Radio Sales & Management. Together, their broadcast careers blossomed, taking them to larger and larger markets until they finally returned to Arizona, as both are ASU grads, having attended the University several years apart from each other. The Gossett family resides in Ahwatukee and attends St. Benedict’s Catholic Church. Son, James, is in his third year at the University of Arizona.
