Calla Marie Medig (August 8, 1989 - October 1, 2017) was a Canadian woman and a victim of the Route 91 Harvest music festival shooting.
Growing up in the small Canadian town of Jasper, Alberta, Calla loved her country music. She loved it so much she put a job promotion on hold so she could attend the concert in Las Vegas with her roommate.
"It certainly is senseless and random," said Scott Collingwood, acting general manager at Moxie’s Grill and Bar in the West Edmonton Mall, where Medig worked.
Collingwood said Medig was scheduled to become a manager Oct. 5.
"She was promoted the day before she left for Vegas," Collingwood said. "She was well respected and well loved. When we announced she was to become a manager, people were hooting and hollering."
He said she moved to Edmonton a few years ago, and quickly worked her way up at the restaurant after being a server and supervisor the past two years. Outside of work, she liked to make wine.
Collingwood said Medig enjoyed hanging out with her co-workers and was well respected. He said she was compassionate, and never spoke inappropriately of her colleagues.
"She was valuable and had wisdom. She could pick up on personalities, and she could read people really well. That is what made her so good at her job," Collingwood said. "Within three weeks, I knew she was going to be a manager."
