Jennifer Howe is the mother of six children—three boys and three girls—with the oldest a proud High School South graduate (Class of 2018) and the rest currently students in the district. She feels extremely fortunate to be able to raise her children from home, and admits it’s a full-time job.
But motherhood has not halted her educational journey. Jennifer is currently a student at Kean University studying education and history, the latter a lifelong passion; she plans to teach high school history when she attains her degree. Born and raised in Freehold, NJ, Jennifer graduated from high school in Ohio, and then went to work in travel before landing “the coolest job” working for the renowned sports agency IMG.
New Jersey called her back, however, and when she returned she worked for Outback as a server and a manager. Jennifer is married to Christopher Howe—a High School North graduate, lineman for First Energy, and reservist in the USAF—and they raise their family in Toms River. Jennifer is very passionate about the community; she has served as a member of the PTA in Seaside Park (TRRS has been a receiving district for their students for more than a decade), and she volunteers at district schools, within her local church, and at Ocean County College.
Jennifer’s hobbies include running—she has completed three half-marathons—reading, driving around the country with her family, spending time at the beach, playing competitive volleyball, and being an avid (or, as she describes it, “crazy”) sports fan.
Jennifer is excited about her position on the board, and looks forward to serving the community for the next three years.
