Marisa Jacques is a proud Troy native and Union College graduate. Marisa has been telling stories and covering sports for Spectrum News 1 since 2002.

Beginning her career as an associate producer in the Capital Region, Marisa’s hard work and passion has led her to her current position as anchor, where she tells community stories from the Hudson Valley all the way to Buffalo. 

When it comes to her most meaningful story, Marisa explains that she could never pick just one. For her, every story she covers is important, as it is a part of someone else’s life that she gets to share with the world. "There is nothing as humbling, intimidating, overwhelming, and exciting in the business as someone willing to share their story with you and allowing you to tell it," she says.

When Marisa isn’t at the news desk, you can find her spending her time with her loved ones and getting out in the community to meet and connect with her neighbors.
