Name: Jennifer Deforest

Company: Team San Jose

Jennifer has worked for Team San Jose for ten years and has held various positions on the events, sales and marketing teams.

As the marketing manager she is responsible for developing new marketing initiatives and implementing new strategies to support meetings and leisure travel to San Jose. She oversee the execution of all advertising, promotions, and asset development to highlight the best attributes of our destination. 

Jennifer is currently leading the design and rebuild of sanjose.org which will feature an event calendar on the home page. The site will feature themed itineraries curated for convention attendees and visitors alike to encourage them to break routine and explore all the wonderful places our city and the surrounding valley has to offer. 

 Jennifer receives the most satisfaction when spending time with her six year old son. Jennifer says, ‚ÄúAs a single mom, it can feel at times like a struggle to juggle a career and home life but my son always keeps life entertaining and forever reminds me that I can do it all.‚Äù 

 In the little bit of free time that she has, Jennifer is either attending a class working toward a certificate in program marketing at U.C. Berkeley Extension, attending a kick boxing class or enjoying a hike. 

 She is looking forward to breaking routine and is eager to meet the LSJ class. As a San Jose native, Jennifer is excited about giving back to an organization in the city she loves.

Wondering how you can help during this time? Social distancing doesn't mean social isolation. We still need to support the nonprofits in our region who are continuing to provide critical services to the people of our community day and night—ensuring our most vulnerable populations are being housed, fed and cared for. However, they could really use our help in a number of ways: donating extra supplies, offering your time as a volunteer or through any generous donations in order to sustain themselves.
