40 UNDER FORTY CONT’D from page 10
 Jes Charette-Fallon
Director of Business Systems,
Clinical & Support Options Inc.; Age 32
Jes Charette-Fallon’s path to her current ca- reer has been a winding one; she originally studied political science and thought about becoming an attorney, and eventually earned a degree in art therapy.
But she then enrolled in a graduate
program for mental-health counseling at
Springfield College, which she called “a
natural fit.” As part of her master’s program,
she interned at Clinical & Support Options
(CSO) in 2012, then came on board as an
employee in 2013. “I loved working with the
Springfield population; to be able to work
with such a diverse population was incredibly meaningful.”
Charette-Fallon moved up quickly in the organization, first as a clinical supervisor and most recently as director of Business Systems, a senior leadership position created out of a need to have someone with a clinical background handling the administration of electronic health records.
“People questioned my transition from the clinical area, because I have such a strong calling, but it really is the best of both worlds,” she said. “I’m able to have an impact on a larger scale, helping clients across all services, and also making the lives of our staff easier.”
At the same time, she keeps her hand in the clinical world at CSO, leading a support group for parents who have experienced trauma, and carrying
a small caseload as well. “That keeps me connected to our very, very important mission.”
Jessye Deane
Director of Communications & Development, Community Action Pioneer Valley; Co-owner, F45 Training Hampshire Meadows,
F45 Training Riverdale; Age 33
She lives out her own answer in her dual careers, with the anti-poverty agency Community Action Pioneer Valley and two F45 Training franchises. “We strengthen our communities in different ways, but both are impactful.”
Deane has worked at Community Action for 11 years, wearing a number of hats over that time. Currently responsible for all communications and private fundraising efforts for six departments and 40 programs, she has increased private funding more than 16-fold.
Meanwhile, she and her husband, Danny, despite both
having other careers and three children under age 4,
launched F45 Training Hampshire Meadows in Hadley in 2018, and doubled down in 2020 — yes, during the heart of the pandemic — by opening a second location in West Springfield. Jessye oversees all aspects of member relations; recruitment, hiring, and supervision of 18 employees; and marketing and social-media campaigns.
“I’m so lucky to be in a position to help people and see the life-changing impacts of our work,” she said. “At F45, we’ve had people lose more than 100 pounds. At Community Action, we have single moms who are no longer homeless. I’m given opportunities where I’m able to help, which is the reason I wake up every morning.”

 essye Deane often asks her kids a simple question: “how
are you going to make the world a better place?”
