JEFF JENKINS / Kansas
>>> DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT
My wife, Kelley and I have been married since 2003. My #1 passion is being Dad to my amazing kids! Every day, I get to fill dual roles, where I am blessed to be both my daughter’s Prince Charming and son’s Superhero.
I am currently serving as the Director of Development for 21st Century Dads Foundation and am the former Chief Operating Officer for the National Center for Fathering. Currently, I also serve as a member of the Fatherless Catalyst Team for Elevate KC and as an advisory board member for Caring for Kids KC.
I am riding in this year’s Dads Honor Ride (DHR) to help raise needed awareness and resources for fatherhood charities. My hope is that by participating in the DHR we will be able to accomplish three goals:
- Honor fathering successes by highlighting the importance of dads in their children’s lives.
- Create greater awareness of the father absence crisis; the #1 socio-economic issues our nation faces and how it adversely affects our communities, families and most importantly our children.
- Raise needed funds for fatherhood organizations to support the ongoing efforts to combat fatherlessness.
I invite you and anyone you may know that is passionate about children or desires to participate in a purposeful way to; ride, contribute monetarily or volunteer. Help us impact future generations by honoring, inspiring and encouraging dads to create a positive fathering and family legacy for their children.
