Judi Kessler is in her 34th year at the University of Arizona, her eighth as Associate Athletics Director for Major Gifts and Development. She is responsible for identifying, cultivating and securing major gifts for the Capital Campaign. With over 14 years of development experience, she played a key role in five major capital campaigns undertaken by Arizona Athletics including the state-of-art $72 million Lowell-Stevens Football Facility, the $30 million Phase 1 of the McKale Center Renovation Project and the recent $7.5 million Ginny L. Clements Academic Center. Kessler is one of only a few staff to secure multiple million-dollar gifts for these campaigns and over $33 million overall to benefit Arizona Athletics. 

Kessler joined the staff in April 1984 as a bookkeeper/gift processor in the Wildcat Club. In October 1985, she was promoted to Coordinator of the Wildcat Club. From 1991-1997, Judi was the Director of Priority Seating. In December 1997, as Director of Donor Relations and Priority Seating, her responsibilities were expanded to include overseeing the Wildcat Club priority-seating program, the parking benefit program, and coordinating the post-season ticket allocation for UA Athletics. In October 2002, Kessler became an Assistant Athletics Director for Wildcat Club and Annual Giving. She oversaw the annual giving program, the gift club level benefit program and served as a development officer in helping to raise funds for Campaign Arizona.

She was named an "Honorary Bobcat" by The University of Arizona in 1999, and has been a UA Presidents Club Member since 1988.

Kessler, a native of Tucson, received her B.A. in business economics, from University of California, Santa Barbara. Judi has a son, Mitch and a daughter, Melissa who are both recent graduates of the University of Arizona.
