Jocelyn Jackson

Jocelyn Jackson’s passion for culturally significant food, social justice, creativity, and community is rooted in a childhood spent on the Kansas plains. Her family would always sing a song before sharing a soulful meal. Jocelyn founded JUSTUS Kitchen to continue to create healing food experiences, including Tender Soul Sessions for Black women and femmes, that inspire folks to reconnect with themselves, the earth, and one another, with the goal of collective liberation. And she still begins every meal with a song. Trained as an artist, attorney, and environmental educator, she enjoys using her role as a cook activist to build beloved community
