Biography

Marion JESSUP

After being eliminated in the first round of the ladies'doubles and the quarter-finals of the singles, Marion Jessup reached the finals of the 1924 Olympic mixed doubles with Vinnie Richards as her partner. They lost the final to another U.S. pair, Hazel Wightman and Dick Williams, 2 and 3. Jessup reached the finals of the U.S. singles in 1919 and 1920 and won the ladies' doubles in 1918, 1919, and 1920 (as Miss Zinderstein) and again in 1922 (as Mrs. Jessup). She also won the mixed doubles in 1919 with her future Olympic partner, Vinnie Richards. Marion Jessup was coached by Hazel Wightman and together they won four national indoor doubles championships between 1919 and 1927. More than two decades later they teamed up again and won the national veterans' doubles in 1948.
