About Donia Jessop
Donia Jessop was born and raised in Colorado City. She lived, worked, and raised a family there for most of her life. Five years ago, she made the decision, along with her husband Joe to relocate their family to the St George area. The move was motivated by the changing dynamics of the community, which caused many people to relocate. She has worked in a variety of different capacities including in-home care for the elderly, as a victim’s rights advocate, and has lobbied government on the state and national level for a variety of issues over the years. She also has experience as an entrepreneur, starting a company, JTech, with her husband 17 years ago. Their latest business venture is The Hub, where they are reopening the old convenience store, gas station, and fast food drive through, in the middle of town.
Fostering community is a big item on her agenda. She wants to find ways to bring more economic growth into the city to provide job opportunities and prosperity. Many citizens would like to see the city get a much-needed facelift, incentivizing citizens to build up and beautify the city is important for the overall sense of community. Donia believes that the city works projects should be geared toward building a positive environment that will draw tourism and promote a sense of pride.
