Meet Miss Illinois 2023

Jessica Tilton

Local Title: Miss Quad Cities

Hometown: Washington, IL

Social Impact Initiative: Donate Life - Advocating for Organ Donation

Social Impact Initiative
Donate Life

Donate Life America is a nonprofit organization leading its national partners and Donate Life State Teams to increase the number of donated organs, eyes and tissues available to save and heal lives through transplantation while developing a culture where donation is embraced as a fundamental human responsibility.

"As Miss Illinois, I will continue my seminar series tour, reaching all 184 higher education institutions in our state with my four national partners and the Secretary of State’s office. While starting my tour this past year, I saw the value in bringing education on organ donation into classrooms and communities as I helped add 2,000+ individuals to the national donor registry."

As a fashion designer I spend most of my free time creating and designing outfits for my various appearances. I even sewed my entire talent wardrobe and my green non-competition evening gown worn during the Miss Illinois competition week.

I am lactose intolerant and I love cheese.
