About the Illustrator

Jessica Haley is a recent graduate of Florida A&M University where she obtained her Master’s Degree  in Business Administration at the Sybil Mobley School of Business and Industry. Jessica, also, holds  a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Florida State University. Back in 2016, Jessica created the  original character of Ice Quebe when her mother told her about a book concept where an ice cube  starts melting when he gets upset.  

During her time at FAMU, Jessica was exposed to several opportunities to sharpen her skills in  graphic design and illustration. This experience ultimately helped shape each character for the book.  Jessica finds the story and her illustrations as a creative guide that helps young girls and boys  manage their feelings by showing them how to do Ice Quebe’s cool-down count.
