"I think Jess is an outstanding candidate for the position at Loyola," Vanderbilt head coach Cathy Swezey said when Roguski was hired. "She led our team so well and brought such quality to the program here at Vanderbilt and I'm sure she'll do a superb job for Loyola."
Also an active member of the community, Roguski was twice named to the Southeastern Conference Good Works Team (at-large division) for her work with underprivileged children and the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital outreach program.
