She was born in New York City to Mary and Patrick Jennings. Mary Jane spent her early childhood years in the Inwood section of Manhattan. She then moved to the Bronx where she attended St. Frances of Rome School and the Academy of the Sacred Heart of Mary.
 
Upon graduation she proudly held a position at the FBI’s New York Office as a support employee.
 
After raising her two children, she spent nearly 20 years working for CBS in their International Publishing Division. Upon her retirement, she became a classroom aide for Southern Westchester BOCES. She was a diligent and valued member to any team she served upon.

Mary Jane was a loving mother to Richard and Kathleen. She was a devoted grandmother to Lauren, Brian, and Georgina and was blessed with her great grandson Logan. She also leaves behind her dear sister Kate, niece Coleen, and nephew Bill and grand nephew Michael.
