Jessica Robb
Editorial Assistant

As Global Edmonton’s Editorial Assistant, Jessica Robb works behind the scenes to help make sure your story gets told.

Born and raised in this city, there is no other place she would rather be.

Graduating from MacEwan University with a Bachelor of Communications with a major in journalism in June 2019, Jessica was welcomed to the Global Edmonton team later that month.

Starting her career at Global Edmonton has provided Jessica with unique opportunities and valuable experience. She was part of a national team that worked to identify victims from flight PS752 hours after the crash on January 8, 2020. Jessica was working on the assignment desk the night of the bus rollover at the Columbia Icefields in Jasper in July 2019. She was part of the planning that ensured a team was on scene within hours.

Branching into broadcast, Jessica hopes to provide a safe space for people to share their stories. Her proudest accomplishment is telling the story of 15-year-old Roderica Ribbonleg, a murdered Indigenous girl from Northern Alberta, and the 127-kilometre Walk for Justice held in her honor.

Outside of work, Jessica is an avid runner and soccer player. She will stop to pet every dog and never says no to an oat milk latte.
