C H E F - Jessica Dillow

Jessica believes that true happiness is a mindset promoted by surrounding yourself with good people, beautiful scenery, and delicious food. Raised in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains in a family full of phenomenal chefs, Jessica has been cooking since she was tall enough to see over the stove. She is passionate about using locally sourced, fresh ingredients, and bold flavors to create mouth watering dishes tailored to guests’ preferences. Jessica pours herself into the creation of each dish she serves and shares “the most important ingredient in anything that leaves my galley is the joy I feel when cooking and the genuine care and love I have for the person about to experience my craft.”

Jessica often refers to herself as a professional student with an insurmountable hunger to learn. In addition to her culinary training, Jessica has received bachelor’s degrees in Premedical Biology and Psychology, attended medical school, and received her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. As a licensed therapist, Jessica works with families, couples, and children to realize their overall mental wellness goals. She is also an adjunct faculty member at a Florida State College and teaches several online counseling and psychology courses. When asked about her diverse background, Jessica says “I made a decision long ago to do what I love. I love food, being on the ocean, helping people, and teaching – so that’s what I do!”

F I R S T M A T E - Kyle Foglesong

For as long as Kyle can remember, he has longed to live on the sea. To answer the call of the ocean, he and Chef Jessica decided to move to Florida about 8 years ago. Eager to learn about all things boating, he spent every free moment on the nearest available vessel including sailboats, charter yachts, fishing boats, pontoons, and jet skis. During this time, Kyle earned his USCG Master Captain 100 GT license and became an expert in boat maintenance and guest safety. While Kyle has enjoyed every aspect of his many years of boating experience and training, he will tell you that the best part by far is the quality time that he has gotten to spend with his instructor, mentor, and brother, Captain Ben.

Kyle’s fun-loving spirit and easy-going personality are contagious onboard Excess. He prides himself on keeping the boat in tip-top shape while ensuring that guests are enjoying the vacation of their dreams. As the first mate on Excess, Kyle is truly a jack of all trades. You may find him in the engine room keeping everything running smoothly, at the bar crafting up a delicious round of homemade cocktails, or overseeing the many fun activities and water toys available on Excess.
