Jenny Garcia Sharon was born and raised in Houston, Texas. A daughter of a Marine and a loving mother she grew up in a very modest home. She learned at an early age what matters most in life are not those of material possessions but that of love and family. Jenny grew up as a Catholic and has relied heavily on her Christian faith to help guide her through the difficult times.
At an early age Jenny learned that she was blessed with a servant’s heart. From the time she was a small child she would fight for those who were not able to fight for themselves. As she listened and learned she grew confident in knowing that it was possible for one person, even a quiet reserved person, to make a difference. Jenny as a teenager took on the responsibility to care for her mother and experienced firsthand the disfunction of our government run agencies. Despite the many hurdles she has encountered her perseverance and resilience has never faltered. Through adversity Jenny has grown stronger.
A fighter is who Jenny has always been. A survivor is who Jenny has become. Jenny is all too familiar with what it is like to be without, to deal with Government agencies, to deal with healthcare, to deal with a life-threatening illness and has overcome it all. She was born with a servant’s heart and even when she was dealing with her own illness, she never stopped fighting for those who could not fight for themselves.
Jenny proudly graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word with a bachelor’s degree in Administration, Minor in Psychology becoming the first-generation college graduate of her immediate family. Over the years she has volunteered her time to help those in her community through her work with various organizations such as Meals on Wheels, Elf Louise, local Food Banks, and the United Way. Jenny also has volunteered her time as the Treasurer of a local Republican group and is a member of Emmaus Catholic Parish.
Jenny has the tenacity it takes to make a difference and the strength to fight for what is right and just.
