Jenna deJong

Jenna deJong is a business, real estate, county government and health reporter for the Summit Daily News.

She’s originally from St. Louis, Missouri, but is formerly a resident of Springfield, where she attended Missouri State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a minor in general business. While there, she was a reporter for the student-led publication, The Standard, before landing an internship with 417 Magazine. For one summer, she was also an intern for St. Louis Magazine. Six months before graduating, she became the editor of Biz 417 Magazine, a business lifestyle publication produced by 417 Magazine.

Though she’s from the Midwest, Jenna’s heart was always in the Rockies. In spring 2021, she jumped a few states over and began working for the Summit Daily News. When she’s not reporting, she’s likely fangirling over the local scenery and taking advantage of everything the region has to offer.
