“A Day in the Life” with performer, Jessica Jones Deroche

Although Jessica Jones does many things in her life, like planning parties, working at her job as an office manager, or spending time with her family, her passion in life is for performance. She has been performing for most of her life, most recently in shows like Disney’s Descendants as Maleficent, or in Sister Act as Deloris Van Cartier, with Storybook Theatre. She has also graced the stage with several other companies, including Front Row Centre Players, as well as performing with the acapella group HOJA for several years.

Jess has always been a performer. Her passion for the arts started at a very young age and has been an integral part of her life ever since. From countless concerts and dancing performances and even to university where she got a BFA in Theatre from U of C, performing is what lights up her world.

Jessica Jones cares deeply for her family, and we adore her and love to cheer her on from the audience. We are so incredibly proud of the amazing person that she is.
