About Jessye

Jessye is a Louisville transplant from Northeast Missouri so she didn’t have much experience with soccer before she moved to Louisville other than some years of youth soccer. She’ll be graduating this May and beginning her masters in the fall for data analytics, all while running her own business selling bath and self care products. 

Along with her love of all things technical, she adores all things nerdy. She even has a Lord of the Rings tattoo with a full sleeve planned. She’s an extreme homebody, but also loves taking her goldendoodle on hikes.

Her husband has played soccer forever and convinced her to start going with him to games. (If you sit near section 112, you’ve probably heard him.) They have three boys, all ready to be Louisville City players themselves, and have recruited her brother-in-law and his fiance to come to the games with us.

About Kelly

Kelly was born and raised in Louisville. Her interest in soccer came from her son Jack, now 13, who began playing at age 3. She and her husband Kyle took Jack to his first Louisville City FC game in May of 2015, and the whole family was hooked after that (though her younger son Nicholas’ interest in the game is mostly centered around the food served)! 

Not satisfied with only being season ticket holders themselves, the Dettlingers also recruited their best friends and Kelly’s parents to the madness of soccer.

Kelly loves her dog Jonesie, Halloween, Harry Potter, jigsaw puzzles, and the beach. She’s a self-proclaimed nerd with social anxiety, so you’ll often find her in the corner of a party with a book or silently analyzing everyone else.

Kelly currently holds the position of Secretary for the LouCity Ladies, with a focus on the Welcome Bag and Charity committees. While she works in the technology field, charity and community relations are her volunteer focus.


 

  • Favorite LouCity Player: tie between Brian Ownby & Niall McCabe. Early in the club they went bowling with Brian and he’s just so nice. She loves that he will always stop to take photos and when he was injured was mingling with fans in the stands. Niall is a riot- and will always speak his mind!
  • Favorite EPL Team: what’s that?- She’s watched a few games at Saints and would to catch a live game in their future travels to Europe.
  • Favorite NWSL Player: Jorian Baucom and energy she brings to the game!

About Ashley

Ashley’s interest in soccer is all because of her husband- he is a huge soccer fan and couldn’t wait for a team. He signed up for season tickets as soon as they were available. He got her a season ticket and she wondered how often I would go.

The rest is history as they’ve never had another discussion about season tickets. She never would have dreamed she would enjoy a live game as much as she does – the energy of the stadium is amazing on game day!  They hardly miss a game planning around vacations, even catching the second half after a wedding!

About Jen

Jen grew up in Louisville and graduated from Male High School. Her and her husband, Brandon, have three children; Mikayla (16), Natalie (15), and Austin (13). 

She was first introduced to soccer when her youngest began playing in a recreational league nearly 7 years ago. Her husband was the Assistant Coach and still coaches various games. 

Jen’s youngest two children play in competitive clubs here locally, as well as for their school teams. Her son holds the position of goalie for both his club and school teams and Jen will be the first to tell you that this is the most stressful position for any parent. It’s also why her favorite LouCity and Racing players are keepers. 

 

Her and her family are season ticket holders for both LouCity and Racing, although her kids tend to hog them so they can take their friends to the games. 
Jen works in Donor Relations for a large non-profit and also currently holds one of the Member At Large positions for LouCity Ladies, chairing the Charity committee. 

 

  • Favorite LouCity Player:  So many of them! She admires Sean Tostch and his reliability and leadership in the back. She likes the ability of JoGo as an attacking defender and the opportunities he creates. She is entertained most by Brian Ownby and is inspired by his determination and grit.
  • Favorite NWSL Player: Nadia Nadeem… she is inspirational and someone she would be honored to speak to in person. Her life experience combined with her soccer talent and determination on the pitch, make her totally unique.

About Krista

Has been a supporter since the start. She is an inaugural season ticket holder for both Lou City and Racing. 

Soccer is life. Their lives revolve around soccer. Former players that can’t get enough of the game. LouCity and Racing games. University of Louisville games. Adult league indoor and outdoor games. MVP soccer practice and travel games. Vacations based around seeing games (all over the world). The list goes on. They are strong supporters of their city and their various sports teams, and just enjoy playing sports, being outdoors, and watching local comedy and theater.
