I think you have to choose a train, as abalada has told you, there is no shuttle service to Essen.

There is a RE train from Dusseldorf hbf that can go to Essen hbf, its a relatively short trip. I also believe there is an S-Bahn train to Essen from Dusseldorf.

Yes, S1 is running from Dusseldorf Hbf to Essen Hbf. And there are some regional trains too. It takes about 30 min.
