(DOUG JESSOPJESSOP’S JOURNAL) What is the difference between “autism awareness” and “autism acceptance?” In this Sundays Jessop’s Journal episode we visit with people that have 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 featuring “Music, Motors & Autism Acceptance”

Our first guest has a powerful voice and positive story.. so yes, he’s going to be our musical guest as well.

Cheyenne Stevens has an inspirational story of autism acceptance through her custom Ford Mustang named “Cookie Monster”

Alexis Cruz explains her autism acceptance connection with the hit ABC TV show “The Good Doctors.”

Everyone has a story. Objects with stories are Treasures Remembered.

But first, Will Baxter.


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.

With another entry into Jessop’s Journal, I’m Doug Jessop.
