Jessica Armstrong (Jess)

Jess wants to live in a world where kids can focus on being kids, and not have to worry about being sick. 

As the Family Zone Director, I am so excited to connect with the families who make the BBQ such an impactful event. I’m so honoured to be part of such a dedicated team, and I’m looking forward to many years of CHEO BBQ.

When he’s/she’s not working as a Manager for The Body Shop, you can find her outside with her dog Luna and partner Matt. They love to cook, go for hikes and spend time at the beach. Jess is a lover of tea and a good book, and she is always looking for interesting plants to fill the house.

This is Jess’ first year working with the CHEO BBQ, but in previous years Jess has worked with Ontario Parks. Her role as Natural Heritage Educator and Park Ranger has definitely prepared her for her role in the Family Zone.

Jess always says to live your best life, strive for what’s important to you and always be ready for adventure.
