Current to Retire from Visit Jackson Sep. 30

August 14, 2020

Visit Jackson has announced the retirement of longtime employee, Welcome Center Specialist, Mary Current.

For over three decades, Mary has served as a fixture and an irreplaceable resource for Jackson tourism and the entire state of Mississippi.

As a Northern transplant to the south, Mary fell in love with our capital city. She quickly learned the ways of Southern hospitality and the art of storytelling.

“Her passion for the hospitality industry and the City With Soul will be impossible to duplicate,” said Rickey Thigpen, President & CEO of Visit Jackson.

We wish her well in her retirement and hope that she will now take time to enjoy the state she loves as a tourist.
