GOTG Profile: Jessica Kriegel and In The Sac

By Laura Braden

Every now and then you meet someone who makes you happy and proud to live in Sacramento. My latest lady crush is Jessica Kriegel.

A fellow transplant, Jessica moved to Sacramento in 2008. By day, she serves as the Senior Director of Strategic Planning for the Oracle Cloud group. She gets to WORK FROM HOME in downtown Sacramento, and her boss is the head of Oracle Cloud, reporting directly into the CEO. He’s a new hire to Oracle, and his mission is to help Oracle dominate in the Cloud market. Jessica manages strategic planning to that end.

And by night, she’s all things Sacramento. She serves on the board of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership, the Sacramento Philharmonic and Opera and the Nehemiah Emerging Leaders Alumni Association. She was a Professor at Drexel University, class V graduate from the Nehemiah Emerging Leaders Program and a current member of Leadership Sacramento (LS15).

Woman injured in Elk Grove theater shooting


A woman was shot early Saturday morning by a stray bullet in the parking lot of Century Theaters on Big Horn Blvd. in Elk Grove.

Police said the woman was hit in the torso, suffering a superficial gunshot wound.

The shooting was the result of a fight inside the theater that generated a crowd and made its way outside to the parking lot just after midnight. Police said when the crowd began to disperse, an unknown suspect fired several rounds into the crowd.

Two cars were also damaged in the shooting.

The name of the woman has not been released at this time, and police believe the suspect fled the scene in a red four door car.
