Jasmine Espinosa

Jasmine Espinosa

Campus Staff

Jasmine was born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida. She graduated from Florida Atlantic University in August 2020 with a Bachelors in General Business Studies and a minor is Hospitality Management with two certificates, one in Club Management and the other in Meetings and Events. During her time at FAU, Jasmine was heavily involved in RUF and it quickly became her home and place of fellowship and community for her three years there. She grew immensely in her faith through the counseling and teaching of her campus minister and interns at FAU. She hopes that God will use her ministry at FAU to help students grow in their faith and be an easily accessible friend in Christ to them.

In her free time, Jasmine enjoys being around people, whether that’s hanging out with her friends and family or getting to know someone new. She also loves to read, go to the beach and watch Netflix. Jasmine is thrilled to spend her time getting to know students and growing in their faith together!
