LOS ANGELES, CA – May 7, 2012: Pittsburgh’s Jessica Wynkoop has been selected as the winner of the “UNDERCOVER BOSS STAR EMPLOYEE BONUS CONTEST” after being nominated by her boss, Travis Seidel, for her exemplary actions both at work and at home. 

In January, CBS launched the promotion that allowed bosses across the country to visit www.cbs.com to nominate one employee who they considered to be exemplary. 

Wynkoop, who works for Prime Communications in Kittanning, Pa., outside of Pittsburgh, has been awarded a $10,000 prize.  Additionally, a $10,000 donation will be given to Seidel’s charity of choice, the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Inc. 

“Jessica works a full-time job and cares for her disabled husband and her 4-year-old son,” stated Seidel.  “Her spirit has never been broken… she loves her husband unconditionally and she’s a dedicated employee.”

UNDERCOVER BOSS is a two-time Emmy Award-nominated reality series that follows high-level corporate executives as they slip anonymously into the rank-and-file of their own companies.  Each week, a different executive will leave the comfort of their corner office for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their corporation.

UNDERCOVER BOSS airs Fridays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
