40 Under Forty: Jessica Galler

Age: 27

Detective with Marion County Sheriff’s Office

Whether it’s a business or community involvement, what inspires you?

Knowing how much it affects people in a positive way and knowing that even just an ounce of effort can go a long way. People don’t realize that even a simple phone call to check on someone or one single act of kindness can actually make a difference in someone’s life.


What aspirations do you have for yourself? 

I intend to become a supervisor by my 10-year mark at the Sheriff’s Office so I can be a positive example of leadership.


What is your favorite way to give back to the community? 

I love supporting small businesses. Mom and pop restaurants are my main spending source because I love to watch an underdog succeed.


What is your favorite thing about the Ocala area? 

The amount of activities that are available to do with my family.
