Jill Staaby

Director of Communications and Marketing

Born and raised in the greater St. Louis area, Jill is a Midwesterner at heart. She earned her Bachelor’s degree at the University of Missouri, graduating from the Missouri School of Journalism with an emphasis in Strategic Communication and minor in Business. Jill was introduced to the reality of human trafficking and modern-day slavery while in college. Her passion for fighting injustice was sparked while attending the Passion Conference in Atlanta, GA.

Just weeks after graduating, Jill moved to Washington, D.C. to begin an internship with International Justice Mission (IJM), a global organization that protects the poor from violence in the developing world. Shortly after her internship with their marketing team, she joined the staff full-time within the Global Advancement division to work with individual donors and fundraisers. Most recently, she served as a project manager with the Church Mobilization team, helping to set strategy and execute projects for engaging the Church across the U.S. in the fight against slavery and into a deeper relationship with the work of IJM.

Jill is thrilled to join Freedom 4/24 as the newest Director of Communications and Marketing. She has a heart for telling others about the reality of human trafficking and rallying others to get involved. She and her husband Svein live in Lynchburg, VA. Outside of work, she enjoys being outside, baseball, warm weather, playing lawn sports with her husband (and winning), and spending time with friends.
