Creating wonderful weddings could not come more naturally to Jaco van Loggerenberg, a talented organiser who thrives on the exhilarating experience of planning an event. “The enthusiasm from clients is fantastic… it’s such an incredibly exciting thing to be part of.” With a degree in Hospitality Management from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Jaco has worked as a Banquet and Floor Manager at luxury establishments such as the Sandton Hilton and Le Franschhoek Hotel and Spa.  It’s no surprise that he’s so well suited to the hospitality industry – his interests include spending special times with friends and family and enjoying good music and food.
Thrilled to be part of the Just Jack team, he loves that every day at the office is unique; from discovering new trends and ideas to meeting interesting people. “It’s great to get up in the morning knowing that you’re going to do something different. There’s so much diversity!”
Growing up in a very social and family orientated environment, Leana has always enjoyed being the host and everything that goes with it. Who would have guessed that she would find herself living her passion?Leana decided to take a gap year and travel, while working abroad. Whilst working in the United Kingdom, Leana truly realized her passion for the event industry and decided to enroll and study event management. After searching for courses both in South Africa and internationally, she decided to apply to the prestiges Aleit Academy, in association with the Institute of Culinary Arts. Leana excelled in her course and graduated in 2011 with a Higher Diploma from the Institute of Culinary Arts with a specialization in Events Management from the Aleit Academy and ICA, as well as a certificate from City and Guilds in Food Preparation.

Leana chose Just Jack as her final training placement and was permanently welcomed to the Just Jack family in December. It has been an amazing journey thus far and Leana is excited to see what the future holds.
