Jessie Joubert (ZAG Academy) has had a long association with Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA).
Having started as a player while at Rondebosch High School in Cape Town, Jessie moved seemingly effortlessly up the ranks t0 be inducted into the 2016 Protea Team that participated in IESF's 8th World Championships that was held in Jakarta.
Being ever mindful of the importance to give back in order to further promote the sport, Jessie became an accredited umpire in 2018. Further pursuing his interests in umpiring, Jessie went on to successfully complete IESF's International Referee Certification.
Today, 29 May 2021, MSSA is indeed fortunate to have Jessie umpire its annual Gauteng Online Championships.
Under Jessie's careful watch, the championship is inn good hands.
