Jennifer Irene Walentowski was born on December 5, 1966, at St. Francis Hospital in Milwaukee WI, the daughter of James and Kathleen (Gesinski) Walentowski. Her most treasured memories where of the family trips to Disney World and Las Vegas.

She graduated in 1985, and then attended Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) and Milwaukee Business Technical Institute (MBTI). One of Jennifer’s favorite things to do was to take trips and vacations to a cabin up north on Post Lake. She was an avid gardener, fisherwoman and cook, and she loved The Beatles.
