"I was gobsmacked and delighted. I never ever thought that from 120 women that it would be me.
"I like my task and the people I work with, but I would like this to be my career and I'm simply attempting to keep my feet on the ground. I'm now checking out doing more modeling however it's still early days.
"To see my face all over the site and marketing, it will be so surreal and wonderful."
Jessica included that winning the title has actually been a genuine boost to her self-confidence and she is pleased that the company has been brave enough to select a size 32 woman to be the face of the whole brand.
She stated: "I really praise them for having the guts to choose someone on top end of their clothing sizes.
"My confidence has skyrocketed. I have constantly been positive being plus-size, however there is a bit of a niggle in the back of your mind.
"In the media and in the plus-size world there are not many individuals who are my size, so I hope I will help ladies understand they don't simply need to wear unshapely black tents, they can be stylish too."
Following the news of her success, Jessica has actually released a blog site about life as a plus-size woman and what she wears, and hair and beauty pointers.
A spokesperson from Scarlett and Jo said that Jessica had been chosen as the face of the brand because she stood apart from the crowd.
He said: "Jessica stood out because she had a great smile and a great mindset. She's a stunning person usually and she's comfortable in herself and that's the most important thing. She looks like a goddess.
"She is going to be the best-dressed individual in Burton as she will have a substantial wardrobe to draw on and we will specifically design some gowns for her. She will be involved in a few of our projects, and will make some personal appearances in shopping centers.
"We are everything about developing women's confidence up. It would be an extremely boring world if everyone looked the very same and we are committed to showing women the method they are."
