When her oldest son, Rhys, passed away in 2013 Jenn and her family wanted to explore ways to keep his memory and spirit alive. Jenn was aware of the important need SWADDLE provided in her local community and through SWADDLE she found a willing and compassionate partner.
After organizing multiple drives in her son’s memory, Jenn was honored to join the board in 2018. Jenn and her family are proud of the impact that Rhys is still making through Jenn's work with this wonderful organization.
