Jackie Hernandez

Lead Hazard Control Program Coordinator

Jackie is no stranger to grit. She grew up in Alice, Texas and came to Michigan as part of a migrant camp with her family at the age of 10. Her family decided to stay in Grand Rapids after they saw booming opportunity in the manufacturing industry.

As an adult, Jackie became inspired to live a life of service. Her nonprofit experience includes Well House, The Hispanic Chamber, and LINC. In addition to her work in the community, she is the second ever Latina to sit on the Board of Education for the Godfrey-Lee School District. “I want to be an agent of change where I can see the change.”

Jackie’s hobbies include going to the beach, reading, art, and spending time with her five sons. She describes herself as a “genuine, caring rebel” and the label suits her well. She’s a rebel with a cause: to serve and to be a strong voice in her community.
