It is Jennifer’s artist’s spirit, perfectionist’s mind, and servant’s heart that makes her a wonderful addition to the Speers family. She truly appreciates the chance to use all of those qualities together to help families honour their loved ones. Her creativity, attention to detail and her immense love of helping others shows through in the work she does each and every day as she creates meaningful and beautiful memories for all the families she works with.
Jennifer grew up in the farming town of Yellow Grass, Saskatchewan, the eldest daughter of a farmer and a nurse. From an early age, she loved working with people. Teaching Sunday school, babysitting and working at a seniors’ care home as a teenager she learned quickly that everyone has a story, and that part of life is learning those stories and how they interact with your own. Her years working as the Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries at First Lutheran Church in Kelowna, BC., receiving a BA in Religious Studies from Luther College at the University of Regina kept her very busy but not too busy to work on her passion for music. Jennifer is a talented musician and has released two independent albums, winning a Saskatchewan Country Music Award for her first and being nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for her second.
Among the time spent in school and work she has managed to make some time for travelling to many places for music tours. She does have a few places she would like to visit in the future, maybe without her guitar in hand, that include seeing the Egyptian pyramids first hand! Jennifer and her husband Rocky can often can be found eating exquisite Asian cuisine and having fun in the punniest sort of way! She is very close with her friends and family and believes they have been a great influence to the person she has become. Jennifer can often be found with her faith family at New Beginnings Lutheran Church, serving in their ministry as a guitar player and vocalist.
Jennifer’s good friend once told her that “Everyone should have a feisty redhead in their lives” and she was glad Jennifer was hers. She certainly brings that feisty redhead mindset with her in a great way to work. She is a beautiful part of the Speers team, bringing with her a feisty amount of kindness, caring and compassion for people.
