Jeni Wallace Inspires the Community

At the March 6th Board of Legislators meeting, Legislator David Tubiolo (Yonkers & Mount Vernon) honored Jeni Wallace for Women’s History Month.


March is Women’s History Month and highlights the contributions of women in history and contemporary society. This year is exceptional because it’s the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York State,  three years before the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920.


Jeni Wallace graduated from St. Francis of Assisi School, St. Barnabas High School and New York Institute of Technology. While attending NYIT she met the love of her life, Lynwood.  They married and while raising their beautiful family, moved to the City of Yonkers over 15 years ago.


Jeni is and has been involved in St. Barnabas Church, Boys Scouts of America (BSA), Eastchester Blue Devils Football and the Parent Teachers Association.


Legislator David Tubiolo said “Jeni is not only a friend, not only a neighbor, but she’s a strong and independent woman. She is one of the strongest people I know, much more determined and resilient than so many of us. I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of being honored for Women’s History Month than Jeni Wallace. She is an inspiration to us all.”  


“You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. I hope this recognition will be a symbol to all women that we all have a powerful inner strength” said Jeni Wallace.


She is currently the Vice-President of Operations at a New York Health Care company and is the Executive-Director of the Matthew Wallace Foundation, which is a not-for-profit, founded in memory of her son, Matthew.
