Senator Jessica Scarcella-Spanton represents New York's 23rd District covering the North and East Shores of Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn.

Jessica Scarcella-Spanton was born and raised on Staten Island, New York. She is the daughter of two school teachers. In 2012, she moved to Colorado Springs, where her now husband Josh was serving in the United States Army, their daughter Emily was born just two weeks before he deployed to Afghanistan for the second time. They now reside in West Brighton with their two children, Emily and Jack. In 2009, Jessica began her career in government as an intern with the NYS Assembly. She was quickly hired as Legislative Director before even completing her Bachelors degree. One point of pride for her is when she was awarded by an advocacy group for her legislative efforts to help families that experienced the tragedy of stillbirth. She worked with the group to organize families from each district to speak to their own Assemblymembers and garnered 148 sponsors for the legislation; that bill is now law today.

After her husband completed his military service, Jessica went to work for Senator Diane Savino in 2017 as her Director of Operations, where she worked for 4.5 years. Some of her major accomplishments were getting over 1000 families across Staten Island and Brooklyn their vaccines when there were no appointments available and successfully fighting to get an Executive Order passed which would require hospitals to allow women in labor a support person when hospitals prevented this during COVID. Jessica briefly worked at the MTA as the Assistant Director of Government and Community Relations.
