Susan Jeske representing Colorado was crowned the first MS AMERICA® on December 4, 1997 at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jeske won a valuable package of cash and prizes totaling $75,000. The pageant was based on evening gown, interview, fitness and on-stage question. She impressed the judges and audience when asked by the emcee about a World Record that she set. Susan holds the World Record, published in the Guinness Book Of Records for singing the National Anthem at the most events in a 24-hour period.

During her reign, Susan created the “Students Against Violence" assembly program where she received more than 30 awards and Proclamations for her presentation. 
 

A professional Image and Beauty Consultant, Susan donated “Makeovers By Ms. America® to charity events throughout Southern California for live and silent auctions raising thousands of dollars for various non-profit organizations. A professional makeup artist, Susan has been the makeup artist for several magazines and weddings and is in demand as a featured instructor at workshops where she has taught hundreds of women skin care and step-by-step Advance Glamour Makeup application.

In 1997, the founder and owner of the Ms America ® Pageant was Richard Simon from Houston, Texas. Two years later in 1999, Ms. Jeske was given ownership and in 2000 received a registered federal trademark for the pageant from the USPTO in Washington DC.
