Courtney Jentzen

Courtney Jentzen is a Detroit-based illustrator and designer. Born in Michigan, she spent the last 10 years living in New York City where she ran her own custom design business. Some of her clients included Warby Parker, Paperless Post, and Martha Stewart Weddings. Her work has a whimsical touch and usually combines some form of watercolor and hand lettering. She recently relocated to Corktown with her husband and young daughter. When she isn’t painting her studio (and listening to podcasts), she’s out exploring the city and indulging in many of the fine craft beers this state has to offer. For this issue, she illustrated the women’s heart health story

  

Emma Klug

From sheet metal shops in St. Louis to youth programs on Detroit’s east side and runway shows in Chicago, Emma Klug has always enjoyed following a story lead, no matter where it takes her. The new associate editor at Hour Detroit magazine plans to bring her love for creative storytelling and grammatically correct sentences to the position. A Ferndale resident and multimedia journalism and fashion business graduate of Columbia College Chicago, Klug was previously an associate editor at Hour Detroit sister publication DBusiness magazine. She enjoys writing about fashion, art, startup businesses, and more. See her “dating quiz” and a little something about lace.

Oakley has gained recognition from international illustration contests, and her paintings have been exhibited in Toronto, L.A., San Francisco, Philadelphia, Montreal, San Diego, and Shanghai.

Aleanna Siacon

Wayne State University junior Aleanna Siacon, who is majoring in journalism and political science, has spent two semesters as an Hour Detroit editorial intern. Siacon has learned two things: 1) Fact checking is integral and invaluable, do it with gusto, and 2) She will miss the free coffee in the break room, dearly. For her intern finale, Siacon has taken us back to Detroit’s historical jazz scene in Paradise Valley with the Club Harlem piano, interviewed WSU President Emeritus Irvin D. Reid after accompanying him on a research trip to Ghana (page 46), and offered up a comprehensive guide to the logistics and implications of the Detroit Police Department’s new installment of synchronized body cameras. “So long, Hour Detroit, ’till I write again,” she says.
