Jessie is a senior Honors student at Westminster College studying communication. She came to Utah from the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. While she spends much of her time reading and writing, she enjoys being outdoors with her husband and dog. An adamant believer in printed books, she grudgingly admits to loving her Kindle.
While at Westminster, she has held several communications internships, contributed to a variety of campus publications and decided upon her favorite tree on campus (the Dawn Redwood south of Dick Science Building).
She has several goals for her time with The Forum, ranging from an increased web presence to a coffee maker in the office. Be warned: She will try to wrangle you into writing for the paper if you express the slightest interest in anything.

Jackson is a sophomore psychology major at Westminster College. Having been raised locally, Jack takes for granted the fact that the “greatest snow on earth” is not more than 30 minutes away and spends much of his time slaying dragons and embarking on galactic adventures via internet. He is very excited for the day when lavish capes become the cornerstone of everyday fashion.
Jack has however been known to dabble in activities that are in direct sunlight. He enjoys the solitude of being outdoors with hobbies such as skiing or photography. Sometimes the introvert will attend a concert or festival, it is not genre based, he just appreciates the atmosphere.
He has held interest in graphic design for some time now and is looking forward to being responsible for the image of the Forum.
