Surely you’ve heard of Shana Jacobs––she’s the JCC’s Camp Registration & Office Manager (we’re also convinced that she is, in fact, Wonder Woman, but she has yet to confirm our suspicions).

Shana started working at the J in January of 2017, but don’t let that fool you. The JCC has always been a huge part of her life, having graduated high school in the Phillips Social Hall and regularly attending J programming for years. The Denver native has been married to her husband, David Jacobs, for 10 years and together they have two beautiful sons, Maxwell (6) and Joshua (4).

Shana is an integral part of our J family, so who better to highlight this month?

How long have you and your family taken part in J programs?

Shana Jacobs: I was a Ranch Camp camper from the ages 8-15. My husband was a trainer here over 10 years ago (this is where we met) and we started as a JBU family seven years ago when we were pregnant with our first son Maxwell.

What programs do your kids partake in here at the JCC?

SJ: Joshua is in the preschool (ELS) and Maxwell attends Camp Shai and School’s Out Camps.

What’s your favorite thing about having your kids in camp at the J?

SJ: I get to be there for the special moments like Shabbat sing, or watching them pass the swim test for the first time.
