Where Tragedy Meets Strength


Jessica Janzen and her family have endured losing their child this past year and have proven that resilience, vulnerability, and grace are key to overcoming life's greatest challenges.



"Hey, I am Jessica – a wife to Hot Ronnie, a mama to Swayzie Grace & Lewiston James (who is happily dancing in heaven) and simply a girl going after her dreams. My aim is to inspire others to bring the joy everyday dang day even when it seems so dark no joy can be found. Together, my husband and I are the Co-Founders of the Love for Lewiston Foundation – a organization raising funds to find a cure for SMA and support the Alberta Children's Hospital and Rotary Flames Hospice - all in honour of our little Lion Lewiston."

Jessica is a Consultant & Instructor at One Cycle Spin Studio, Hot Yoga & Spin Crowfoot and Lagree YYC. She is most passionate about living as fully and boldly as possible. We feel so fortunate to have Jessica share her story and strength with us at our next Babes Who Brunch event this Saturday, May 27th as our resident girl boss. The resiliency Jessica and her family have endured in the past year is truly remarkable and is a strong reflection of Jessica's goal to inspire others to bring the joy out of every day, even on the darkest of days. 

This resiliency is exactly what Babes Who Brunch, our girl boss series celebrates. It's about taking life's most complicated challenges and having the ability to turn it into action and knowing the power of your own voice. In midst of such hardship, Jessica and her husband created Love for Lewiston in honour of little Lewiston to raise awareness for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), help find a cure, and encourage other families to never suffer in silence. Combining a network of inspiring women who have a similar desire to empower other women with a tasteful brunch is exactly how we want to spend our Saturday mornings - isn't that what you want too?

Come join us as we welcome Jessica to MARKET Calgary for our May Downtown edition by purchasing your tickets here. We can't wait to connect with you there!
