Our Own Hometown Hollywood Star...
Jessica's mother Tina Simpson is originally from McGregor, where Jess' grandparents and other family still reside. Jessica
and her husband and "Newlyweds" costar Nick Lachey visit Central Texas regularly and have featured some of their visits including
dining at The Coffee Shop Cafe in McGregor on their MTV reality show.
Jessica has sang for the first family in Washington DC several times. She and her Nick performed at President Bush's
Inauguration at the request of the Bush girls, Barbara and Jenna. When they met the first family, Jess told President Bush
where her aunt lived and described the house to him. He told her he knew the house and just might stop by and say 'Hello'
|Just like the tourists....

Jessica also mentioned on Jay Leno's show about she and Nick having breakfast with her grandparents at The Coffee Shop
in nearby McGregor that President Bush had stopped in to have lunch at several times. Jessica talked to Leno
about her family prompting her into having her photo taken beside a George W. Bush cutout on display at the restaurant just
like the tourists do, despite having had performed for him.
About the only other autographed photo, besides those of the President, you see around Crawford and McGregor is that
of Jessica Simpson.
It has been a truly unique experience having had watched Jessica Simpson become a beautiful and talented young woman with
the voice of an angel. Her Grandmother Dorothy's stories about her have become an inspiration for those lucky enough
to have heard them over the years...since her Jr High School days. If you have a goal, work hard and never give up, you too
can follow your dream.
Jessica is Central Texas' own true Hollywood movie and "Pop" singing star!
