Calla Medig, 28, who was among those who died in the mass shooting, grew up in Jasper, a town in Canada’s Alberta province.
She had taken time off from her job at Moxie’s restaurant in west Edmonton to attend the Route 91 Music Festival in Las Vegas, said her boss, Scott Collingwood.
“This had started to become an annual thing for her. I believe it was her third trip,” Collingwood said.
When news broke about the shooting Sunday, Collingwood said he immediately called Medig, It went right to voice mail, and she didn’t answer texts or Facebook messages.
“She was kind of a rock and, as of Thursday, she would have been our newest manager,” Collingwood said. “A lot of us around here have super heavy hearts and we already miss her.”
