Jaime Lee Simmons, Tragedy to Comedy
Hailing from Mull, Massachusetts Jaime Lee Simmons is a stand up comedian, podcast host, content creator and survivor.
She had to mature and grow up at an early age as she watched her father, Eric M. Simmons, a well known Boston Stone Mason, get addicted to his back painkiller medication which spiraled into him becoming a prescription /opiate drug lord on the south shore. She had to spend her high school years with both her sister, Jessica Ann Simmons, and her father in jail.
Her sister and father passed away from drug overdoses, and her family fell apart. She had to help raise her siblings while maintaining a 4.39 high school GPA and she turned to marketing & social media as her way out of poverty and pain. Jamie wrote a poem about her father as a class assignment to write about someone in the news.
She wrote in part: Your words, too fast off your tongue and onto the newspaper website, your convictions fly, the ignorant townspeople’s comments along with them.
Jamie graduated at 18 with high honors from Hull High School in June and was ranked 6th in a class of 74 students.
This experience was extremely traumatic but made Jaime the strong woman she is today. From being severely bullied not only students, but she received it from people in her hometown and was faced with her family’s situation constantly on the front page of every local newspaper.
Jaime didn’t let this stop her and she went on to graduate from the University of Vermont and has now graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.), Marketing, Entrepreneurship, and Computer Science.
After college, she worked as a bartender & started her career at Thrive Hive, the top digital marketing agency in Boston, Massachusetts.
