Kankakee native, Jasmyne Humble, has played an intricate part in local government for a handful of years now. Humble worked for former City of Kankakee Mayor Chasity Wells-Armstrong as the Marketing and Communications Coordinator. When Mayor Wells-Armstrong did not win re-election in early 2021, Jasmyne was presented with the opportunity to apply for the Communications Director position for the Kankakee County Board. Humble landed the role and has been working hard since then on getting the word out about how the American Rescue Plan Funds are being distributed in Kankakee County. It also turns out that Jasmyne worked in television news before working for the City of Kankakee and the Kankakee County Board. I’m grateful that someone as positive and hard working as Jasmyne is diligently working behind the scenes to make Kankakee County a better place to live.
Thank you for all you do, Jasmyne!
