She/Her/Hers

Donor Relations Officer

Metro Portland

Philanthropic Services
(503) 552-3509

Jennesa brings 16 years of nonprofit experience to donor relations. She enjoys supporting multiple generations in their charitable giving and is a certified 21/64 trainer. She finds inspiration and purpose in connecting people to causes they care about. Enticed by the “keep Portland weird” vibe and the verdant landscape of the Pacific Northwest, Jennesa moved to Portland in 2006 in search of community. When not gushing about the joys of philanthropy, you can find her fussing over her garden, spending time with Rio the rescue puppy and chasing the sun. 

"It's not within anyone's power to save the world, but it is within your power to add whatever you can with a loving and caring and peaceful heart."
