Born and raised in Douglas for most of her life, Jennie has been a member of Fred Hilburn Unit 11 for 18 years. Her Auxiliary eligibility is through her brother, a Navy veteran from the Korean Conflict and her brother, an Army Vietnam veteran (deceased). She is very proud of her eligibility through the current service of her Army son, LTC Macedonio Molina. Jennie has held numerous leadership positions at the Unit, District and Department levels. After more than 36 years of working in Behavioral Health she decided to retire. This lasted 2 weeks, and she is now working part time. She has been an active member of her community and has been given many awards and recognitions. For the first time in 19 years she will no longer be volunteering with Special Olympics. Jennie has a strong sense of commitment to our veterans, children and communities. Her theme for the 2021-2022 year is "Making a Brighter World for our Veterans" and her special project is PTSD Education and Awareness.
