Jon Williams
Jon Williams is an advocate for breaking the stigma around mental illness, abuse, and the power of community. Jon is the midday announcer for The Zone @ 91 -3, a radio station in Victoria, British Columbia, and can be heard educating listeners to be more aware of the challenges faced by people with mental health issues.

He has helped and inspired those with mental health issues by sharing his own personal stories and showing that they are not alone in their struggles. Not that the show is purely based on such, his passion for music, science and having fun shines through too.

Jon has been on Vancouver Island for nearly six years and is very excited about sharing his energy and passion to The Jellyfish Project. Music is absolutely key to Jon, the power its voice has and the joy it brings is why his life revolves around it.

Jessica Lansfield, PhD | Advisor
Born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Jessica’s life and learning have been highly influenced by the north, the beauty of nature, and the exploration of the earth’s wide range of cultures, climates and conditions.  Understanding various aspects of health and the human condition have spurred both her academic and professional careers. With undergraduate degrees in Applied Human Nutrition from the University of Guelph and Therapeutic Recreation from the University of Waterloo, along with a master’s degree in Therapeutic Relationships from the University of Waterloo in partnership with Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, and a doctorate degree from the University of Victoria’s innovative and research-intensive Social Dimensions of Health program, Jessica’s understanding of health has become increasingly holistic and ecological. Her transdisciplinary doctoral research filled gaps in the literature concerning the interconnections between social engagement, the social determinants of health, and the ecosystems perspective.  Outside of academia, over the past 15 years, Jessica as worked as a consultant for various not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations, and government departments. Her work has spanned from educational, art-based and environmental initiatives, to long-term care and age-friendly strategies, to therapeutic recreation and hospital settings, to music programs, film projects and festivals, to bio-acoustics research, conservation, and social justice societies. Jessica is the past executive director of The Jellyfish Project and has been held an advisory role to the project since December 2013. She currently splits her time between the Yukon Territory’s stunning mountain ranges and British Columbia’s beautiful coastlines, as time in nature grounds and inspires her life’s work.
