Chris Jasper's Profile

I am a Journalism and Economics dual-major at the University of Missouri. I grew up in the great state of Iowa before heading south to pursue my literary dreams. I believe in both the power of the written word and the ability of numbers to shed light on the world.

I covered the Public Life beat for the Missourian in the spring of 2013. I am currently a copy editor and an advanced reporter for the summer of 2014, and I primarily cover state news.
