Jessica Peters

I began my career in 1999 at the Chilliwack Progress, after completing the journalism program at Kwantlen College University.

Over my career, I have worked at several Black Press Media newspapers in the eastern Fraser Valley, and am currently the editor at the Progress. I raised my children in Chilliwack, and have been a volunteer in many capacities here. In 2023, I was recognized for feature and column writing by the BC and Yukon Community News Media Association.
