Janet DeJonge is a Phoenix native graduating from Washington High School and the University of Arizona. She has been married for 26 years to Dave and has 2 adult children, Sarah 24 and Tim 22 who live in Plymouth, MN.
Janet and Dave spent the last 20 years in Plymouth, MN raising their children and recently moved back to Phoenix. Janet was very involved with the children’s schools serving on PTO and volunteering. She was also a leader for Community Bible Study for 10 years.
Since being back in Phoenix her goal has been to “Make a difference”. She is a wish granter for Make A Wish, an Oasis tutor and Sunshine Reader at Camelview Elementary and volunteers at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church.
Just days before moving to Phoenix, her 17 year old nephew committed suicide. The SunShine Foundation fits in with her goal to “Make A Difference” so others do not consider suicide an option and families do not have to face the devastation of suicide.
