We present a study of the relative energy loss of quark and gluon jets that traverse a weakly-coupled medium. The study is carried out with the jet quenching Monte-Carlo event generator JEWEL which has been validated for a large set of jet observables. We find that the relative energy loss of quark and gluon jets approaches a constant value at large jet energy and that value is significantly larger (closer to 1) than the single parton expectation of $C_F/C_A$. Within JEWEL quark and gluon jets lose energy similarly.
