About Chico & Jordyn: Chico Eastridge (he/him) is known as our Professional Plugger-Inner. Chico is a professional formula-1 race car driver, with a sexy accent, and a devil may care attitude. From humble roots, amongst the vineyards of Burgundy, Chico Eastridge tinkered with the emerging e-commerce market and became disgustingly rich. After graduating from his nautical high school, which traveled the world via outrigger canoe, Chico attended Brown University where he majored in sword fighting, minored in back flips, and had more fun than just about anybody. You can find him nowadays staring listlessly into space with a smug expression on his face. Jordyn Fitch (they/them) is JAM’s Community Engagement producer. They grew up in Miramar, Fl, but if you ever ask, they’ll say Miami because who really knows where Miramar, Florida is? They attended Dartmouth College and pursued a Film and Media Studies major,  planning on declaring a minor at some point in something that would assuage parental fears of having a child that is a Film and Media Studies major. It never happened.
