Congratulations to our December Volunteer of the Month Glenn Jenner! Glenn first connected with our chapter after joining the Parrot Head Club of Tidewater about 15 years ago. While learning more about the club’s activities, he heard about a volunteer opportunity to help run the annual Charity Beach Ball to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association Southeastern Virginia Chapter. The opportunity connected with Glenn as he had seen the effects of Alzheimer’s disease firsthand after losing his grandmother to Alzheimer’s and later his father to a related dementia. For the past 13 years, Glenn has volunteered on the Beach Ball committee and helped raise over $600,000 for our chapter since the event’s inception, last year alone brought in close to $76,000. About 6 years ago, Glenn was asked by our executive director Gino Colombara to join our Chapter’s Board of Directors and to this day is still an active member.
Glenn Jenner is originally from Northern Virginia and moved to Virginia Beach in 1982 for school. After graduating in 1986, he started Brothers Printing and has served as the business’s president since then. Brothers initially supplied local customers with vital business forms and office paperwork before adding key promotional items to the mix in 1992. Brothers Printing now serves customers nationwide with a variety of different printing services. Glenn says his favorite part of the job is interacting with his longtime customers, many of whom have stayed with Brothers since the print shop opened! While they usually work on business printing projects, unique requests are made too. For example, one of Glenn’s favorite projects was manufacturing 500 pairs of custom flip flops that left logo impressions in the sand when worn.
When Glenn is not working, he likes to spend time with his wife Denyse Jenner and their rescue dog Ginger, who the couple saved from a high kill animal shelter after Denyse saw the dog’s picture on social media. The couple also loves to cook and entertain small groups of friends at their home in Virginia Beach. When they have the time, Glenn and Denyse love to travel. Glenn’s favorite travel spots include Florence, Italy and Cyprus, Greece where he says he had the best food in his life.
Our Chapter is so grateful to Glenn for being part of the legacy that will help us achieve a world without Alzheimer’s! To learn more about how you can volunteer for our Chapter please visit our website at https://www.alz.org/seva/in_my_community_104988.asp
