While i am sorry for Bryce, part of me thinks that competing singles again might be what Jess needs to improve her confidence in her jumps. She's been very hit or miss for the last few seasons.
Quite frankly, she hasn't looked like she's been enjoying herself out there.
Too bad about Bryce. That really sucks that he is out for the entire season. I think that it takes a lot of courage for Jessica to jump back into singles. Maybe she isn't looking to get to Worlds, maybe she just wants to skate because she loves it. I agree that its a great idea to get back some confidence in her jumping ability.

Sigh... Best of luck to Bryce in his recovery and Jessica in her singles skating.
Really sad for them. Wish a speed recovery to Bryce and can't wait to watch Jessica in singles, because she's great in singles from what I remember(2006-2008 Nationals).
What devastating news for an athlete. That sounds like a long recovery. Good luck to him on a strong recovery, and to her on a new endeavor.

I hope he recovers soon, they are still young. I hope she stays in shape and likes skating alone until he can join her again.
From Jessica Dubé's wiki page:
Trivia question: Does anyone remember which two JGPs?In addition to pair skating, she also competed in singles until 2008. Her highest finish in the senior ladies' event at the Canadian Championships was 6th in 2008; internationally, she was a medalist at two junior Grand Prix events.
Do Cody Hay and Jessica Dube live and train near each other?
Because maybe it would make sense for both of them to do some skating together, whilst he's looking for a partner and she's waiting for Davison to heal, to keep their pair skills in shape.
IIRC, Jessica's best jump his her 3 lutz.
Skate Canada passed a rule the year after, banning skater from skating only the SP.

She had a car accident in December before Canadians, thus the taping.
Jessica did win the Coupe de Nice in juniors in 2002.
