It is our pleasure to welcome as the 2017 Jackson Day banquet keynote speaker, Oscar-Nominated Actress,

Tess Harper!



She is an outstanding actor with a long-held connection to Southwest Missouri. She attended Missouri State University (then SMSU) and was active in Tent Theatre.  She would go on to appear in many films and TV shows including Crimes of the Heart, Tender Mercies, Breaking Bad, and No Country for Old Men. With 102 acting credits, she has a deep understanding of the entertainment industry. An active union member of SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors’ Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artist), Tess knows how attacks on union workers weaken the landscape for all workers.

The Greene County Democrats are excited to welcome Ms. Harper back to the Ozarks.
