Every month, Dixon Schwabl + Company honors an outstanding employee with the coveted Jaz Janie Award, created to commemorate Public Relations Vice President Jane ​“Janie” Argenta, who passed away in September 2009. Jane was a fun-loving, compassionate and hardworking professional who touched the lives of many.

The February Jaz Janie recipient is Director of Insights & Analytics Melissa Jusianiec.

Melissa brings an aura of calmness like no other, and those who work closest with her describe her as “unflappable,” “fantastic” and a gem to work with. She makes you feel like you have a partner, and when she’s working with clients, she’s the consummate professional.

At the end of the day, Melissa connects the dots between research findings and actionable marketing insights while overseeing a super-smart group of people immersed in data and analytics.

We couldn’t think of a more deserving Jaz Janie this month, Melissa. Congratulations!
