COLUMNIST

Jennifer Zurko Managing Editor

Managing Editor of GrowerTalks magazine. Before Jen joined the Ball Publishing team, she worked in the Marketing Department for Ball Horticultural Company. But her first love (and what she actually went to school for) is journalism, so she’s been happy to be doing the two things she loves: writing, reporting and talking to people in the industry. When she’s not handling the day-to-day business of cranking out a magazine (and keeping Beytes in check), she can be found hanging out at home with her husband, Doug, and daughter, Olivia. They spend a lot of time with friends and family and can often be seen attending concerts and sporting events—especially to cheer on the Chicago Bears (for better or worse), Cubs and Blackhawks. She's a huge music lover and has been known to sing a karoke tune or two.
