Jenn, as she is known among friends and neighbors, is no stranger to facing challenges head on. The granddaughter of immigrants, Jenn experienced the loss of her father at an early age and watched her mother work hard to support her family. She has taken those lessons of perseverance and commitment to use in her own life and in her efforts to assist and support others.
“I am so excited that Jenn decided to run for the Boston City Councilor seat. It’s refreshing that someone with her talents and experience is willing to serve as a public servant,” says TK [Terence] Ankner, Nassour’s campaign finance chair. “Being a homeowner and raising her children in the district gives Jenn a perspective of the needs of our community that is essential for the job.”
Jenn lives in the Back Bay with her three daughters and two dogs. She is an attorney and currently serves as the CEO of ReflectUS – a nonpartisan coalition of the nation’s leading women’s representation organizations working to increase the number of women in public office. Jenn sits on the Boards of MassINC, Massachusetts General Hospital for Children, the UMass Women Into Leadership program and the Union Club of Boston. Jenn previously served on the boards of Suffolk University, the Dorchester YMCA, Bridgewater State University and the Massachusetts Public Health Council.
