About JACC
Jennifer Ashleigh Children’s Charity is a charitable organization born out of a personal journey and struggle of living a nightmare no family should endure.

Jennifer Ashleigh Clements was born in 1989 and passed away from an inherited degenerative muscular disease when she was 6 months old. During those 6 months, Jennifer’s family experienced not only an emotional journey, but the financial reality of caring for a seriously-ill child. They talked with other families who struggled to make ends meet and observed the effect the stress of the financial aspects had on a family’s relationship and time with their children and each other. Tragically, a mere two years later, the Clements family was in the all too familiar situation with their second daughter Danica. Danica also succumbed to the same illness and during her time here, her family, again, witnessed and experienced the stress, frustration, and challenges that only a family of a seriously-ill child can understand.

Not one to stand by and do nothing, Norman Clements, Jennifer and Danica’s grandfather, founded the Jennifer Ashleigh Children’s Charity in 1990 shortly after Jennifer passed away. Gathering with family and friends on a cold, blustery February night, the Jennifer Ashleigh Children’s Charity was established and several of the people in the room on that night are actively involved in the charity to this day.
