OUR MISSION 

The Jen's "Just Be You" Memorial is established in memory of Jennifer Janiak. Jen passed away suddenly in 2015 at the age of 21 from a pulmonary embolism. She lived in Chester, NH with her parents, Tom and Janet, and her brothers Joe and TJ. Jen had a love of reading and writing and had just achieved a double major in English and Journalism from Boston University (BU). She had many interests and passions, always followed her dreams, and was an inspiration to "Just Be You". We want to help others who have similar dreams and passions by awarding an annual scholarship in Jen's honor to a Pinkerton Academy graduate. We are also interested in opportunities to help children develop a love of reading, writing, and learning as Jen had.

WHO WE ARE

The Jen's "Just Be You" board is a group made up of Jen's family, aunts, cousins and friends. We also have many volunteers who help with our annual 5K event. While we miss her terribly, we think she would be proud of the work we are doing to honor her.
