Jenny Woodall has worked as a grief specialist with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation since 1998. She plays a key role in development and implementation of the Foundation’s family programs, including the Peer Support Program, Wellness Conference, Young Adult Retreat, Hal Bruno Camps, and retreats for spouses, parents, and siblings. She recruits and works closely with presenters and facilitators to create dynamic programming that fosters growth, healing, and overall wellness within the Fire Hero Family community. Jenny helps survivors share their stories through the bimonthly publication The Journey and assists people in finding grief support, both through the Foundation’s Peer Support Network and by identifying resources in their local communities.
Jenny holds a master’s degree in Human Sciences, with a certificate in Thanatology, from Hood College and a bachelor’s degree in Special Education from James Madison University.
I am honored to work on behalf of the survivors of America’s fallen firefighters and to support and witness their strength, grace, resilience, and healing connections with one another.
