Jennifer Smith

Agriculture, the outdoors, and families are part of Jennifer Smith’s personal tapestry. As a part of the Advancement team, she is responsible for securing private support for the Illinois 4-H program, Department of Human Development and Family Studies, and Agricultural Education program. Jennifer earned both her undergraduate and master’s degrees in the College of ACES.

Jennifer is also busy keeping up with her husband, Shane, and two kids, Delaney and Austin. When she’s not chauffeuring kids to soccer, 4-H meetings, horse shows, band and a plethora of other opportunities, she is likely caring for one of their many critters on the farm.
