Meet Our Client - David Jennings

David Jennings was born in Houston, Texas on January 25, 1981. He lives with his parents Ken
and Shirley and dog Bobbi, in Conroe. David has been a Special Needs client since he was six
years old when he was in an auto-pedestrian accident which left him with a TBI. When he was
seven his father was transferred to California where he lived the next twelve years of his life.
While in high school at Corona High School, he had a part time job at Rite Aid and was on a
Challenger Baseball team for five years. At nineteen his family returned to Texas and he finished
his education at Magnolia High School. David has one older brother, two nieces and two

David has traveled quite a bit with his family from Texas, California, Florida, Maine and many
states in between. With his parents, he has also toured the United Kingdom, France, Italy,
Germany, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands. David likes to be on the go, even if

it is only to go shopping. His most favorite thing is summer
camp. He has camped at Camp Joan Mier in the San
Bernardino Mountains and Camp Paivika along the Pacific
coastline while living in California. Since moving back to Texas,
he has enjoyed Camp for All and Camp Blessing in the Texas
Hill Country. He also enjoys eating out, computer games and
watching the Animal Channel.

David is a Christian and a member of the Wildwood United
Methodist Church in Magnolia. He has been a volunteer in
their Family Assistance Programs for the last four plus years.
David started at Bridgewood Farms after leaving Magnolia High
School and wouldn’t miss a Bridgewood Farm’s Dance unless
absolutely necessary. He also likes to join in on their monthly visits to Incredible Pizza.
