Ann Marie Jennison
Board Member

Ann Marie has been married to her college sweetheart, Jeff, for 30 years. They have four children, two of whom have flown the nest and live in Dallas, while the younger two are in high school. She and Jeff have made it a priority to pray and serve the community together as a family on a regular basis since their children were very young. She is proud of their close-knit relationships and feels thankful that all four children continue to grow as Catholics as they live out their faith in words and actions. Ann Marie’s Catholic roots come from being raised in a Catholic family and by attending mass and CCD at St. Hedwig Catholic Church in Los Alamitos, CA where she grew up, though she admits that becoming a wife and mother were turning points that drew her into a deeper understanding of our faith. In 2005, her family was blessed to become founding members of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Ladera Ranch, CA and currently they attend San Francisco Solano Catholic Church in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA. As a long-time believer in the importance of faith first being formed at home where children are most influenced, Ann Marie is excited about the potential that the Pathways programs have of transforming the lives and hearts of families no matter what stage they are in.
