40 Under Forty: Jessica Tisch, 32
Re: Jessica Tisch (MBA 2008)
Despite a law degree and an M.B.A. from Harvard, the Tisch heiress was never drawn to the family business (her father, James Tisch, is CEO of Loews Corp.). She preferred public service and now spends her days thinking about infrastructure protection and explosive-trace detection devices while tending to projects from federal funding allocation through purchase and implementation.
