Jessica Lemmon

Founder/President,
Lemmon Entertainment
Toronto, ON, Canada
@jessicalemmon
Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Jessica Lemmon was first and foremost a music fan, who frequented local community punk shows and traveled to see artists like Bif Naked, The Distillers and No Doubt. Jessica started her career in the entertainment industry working at an event security company and managing independent artists.

After wanting to seek new adventures and challenges in the entertainment industry, Jessica packed up all her belongings and drove across the country to Toronto in 2011, and has never looked back.

Upon coming to Toronto, Jessica quickly attracted the likes of companies like Eggplant Entertainment, Wax Records and Bernie Breen Management. Jessica found herself on the road across North America with Our Lady Peace, Matthew Good, and Kathleen Edwards in a variety of different roles. Jessica further grew her relationship and knowledge base by working with Live Nation to oversee a number of tours, events, and large outdoor festival properties. While at Live Nation, Jessica also founded and programmed the “Lemmon Stage” at Toronto Warped Tour that featured home grown artists like Courage My Love, The Beaches, Seaway and Sumo Psycho.

From there, Jessica moved to New York, where she began working with SFX Entertainment to oversee a brand new experiential festival property, “Corona SunSets”. Corona Sunsets took Jessica around the world for many years producing beach festivals in far-flung locales such as Colombia, China, Australia, Italy, UK, Uruguay, and many more. During this process, Jessica became a specialist in strategically structuring teams to ensure sold out events in the most challenging locations… (Ask Jessica what it’s like to move a festival location with 6 days’ notice, or what it’s like to build an event at the top of the Andes Mountains in Chile.)

Jessica, always an independent, free-spirited, entrepreneur, knew she had a different way of doing things that had struck a chord with many of her partners. In 2015 Jessica formed Lemmon Entertainment, a full-service entertainment firm that specializes in producing large-scale events, unique production projects and music/brand partnerships. Jessica is often called upon to structure experiential programs in a sustainable format for her clients. Some of Jessica’s favorite projects were Rihanna’s 777 Tour, CMT Music Festival and the Invictus Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies where she
worked with some of her favorite artists, Kelly Clarkson, Bryan Adams and Bruce Springsteen.

When Jessica isn’t consulting or producing an event, she can often be found on the west coast, hiking, eating great food, or traveling the world to any number of concerts.
