(DOUG JESSOPJESSOP’S JOURNAL) Everyone comes from somewhere. In this Sundays Jessop’s Journal episode we visit with a chef for Eastern European royalty and a doctor that escaped prison in South America for powerful, positive and inspirational stories.

Here is a quick preview of the next 30-minute collection of “Powerful, Positive & Inspirational Stories” called Jessop’s Journal that airs Sunday morning at 10 on ABC4 Utah.

In this Sunday’s episode of Jessop’s Journal we are talking about “The Immigrants”—

Our first guest talks about the powerful influence his grandmother had on his life’s work.

In between, Our Musical Guest, Mac & The Messenger entertains us with a positive song “summertime”

Chef Imi about inspirational story of how food transcends language.

Everyone has a story. I love the fact that “Objects with stories are Treasures Remembered (TM).” Brandon Fugal shares the story behind one of his prized possessions.

But first, Dr. Gustavo Ferrer


Everyone has a story. I strongly feel that “stories have power”. Chances are that if you are going through something, that someone else probably has as well. The shared experiences we humans have can help each other. That my friend makes the point that stories “help us understand each other.”

You don’t have to agree with everyone, but in my opinion, if people would take more time getting to knowing more about others and where they are coming from, we just might find out that we have more similarities than differences.

Jessop’s Journal is something special when it comes to broadcast news. I have the honor of being able to do longer in-depth interviews that you don’t normally see with people from all walks of life. A big shout out goes to my collaborator, Ed Wilets, who does a great job as my videographer/editor for all my stories. Your feedback is always welcome at DJessop@abc4.com

It’s my honor to be able to share, Jessop’s Journal, a 30-minute collection of Powerful, Positive and Inspirational Stories every Sunday morning at 10 a.m. on ABC4 to all of Utah along with parts of Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and Arizona. Jessop’s Journal is also available worldwide at JessopsJournal.com.
