Jennifer Messer from "Biggest Loser 2013" is one of the contestants in Season 15 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. She is a clerk and a bookkeeper from Abingdon, Viriginia.

Jennifer Messer attributes her weight gain to the "mindless and emotional eating that comes with a busy life." She says, "I lost sight of me and focused on my other titles instead — wife, mom, volunteer, etc." Jennifer was the youngest of three growing up in Abingdon, Virginia, and played volleyball in high school. She got her degree in accounting from Virginia Highlands Community College. The weight gain began after high school, but she has struggled the most with her weight in the past five years.

Now the married mother of two daughters, ages 10 and 13, 42-year-old Jennifer weighs 266 pounds and has high blood pressure. She decided she had to change her life while attending a memorial service for the athletic director of their local high school, who died at the age of 44. Jennifer says she wants to lose the weight so she can "live a more fulfilling life where my weight will no longer hold me back from doing anything that I want to do." She looks forward to swimming, biking, hiking, running and being a healthy role model for her daughters.
