Community Engagement Officers


Hi Everyone! I’m Jazzy Edwards, a Community Engagement Officer in Student Life and I am super excited to get y’all super excited about some super exciting things!


This is my first year at Cascadia and my first time being a part of student life. I am working toward a degree in biology, with an end goal of getting into (UW) medical school and work in pediatrics. Other than that, I grew up in Snohomish and have lived there my whole life. I love talking to people, so feel free to come up to me anytime, we can talk about super random things or not so random things! I also love traveling, hot chocolate, and super bad/cheesy movies! So where ever or whenever please don’t be shy, come on up and we can talk about whatever!


I can’t wait to see you all at Cascadia’s events!



I’m Luz Mangaser but you can call me Bong.


I’m currently working in the student life department at Cascadia College as Graphic Coordinator. I am also a student at Everett Community College taking graphic design classes to reinforce my trade. If you need creative help with posters, flyers and web banners, come see me.
