Jill Fellman has always been involved in the Jefferson County school system. She grew up in Lakewood and attended Jefferson County schools. Professionally, she was an educator in the Jefferson County public schools for over 30 years.

Fellman's extensive career began as a secondary school math teacher. For 18 years, she worked to help her students discover themselves as a classroom teacher. From there, she became an Assessment Resource Specialist, interpreting standardized test data to better the school system and improve student achievement results, before working as the Math Curriculum Coordinator for the district.

Subsequently, Fellman became a Director of Curriculum and Instruction for Jeffco Schools. In addition to supporting curriculum development in several course areas, she oversaw the Secondary Instructional Coaches — striving to ensure all students have meaningful educational experiences. After retiring from the school district, Fellman served as a site professor for the University of Colorado at Denver's Teacher Preparation program and a supervisor of student teachers for Colorado State University.

After retiring from her career as an educator, Fellman served as an elected member of the Jefferson County School Board of Education from November 2011 to November 2015. In her Board service, she served two years as the Board's secretary and two years as treasurer.

Fellman has also served on the Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB), advocating public education issues with legislators, and serving on CASB's Executive Committee and Federal Relations Network. She also attended the Colorado School Finance Project meetings and served on the Jefferson County Business Education Alliance.
