Meet Janine Jensen
Janine grew up in Fort St. John and has generations of family and friends nearby. “I love Fort St. John because I get to know people so well,” said Janine, “town events feel so personal and intimate.” The small town atmosphere means Janine seems to know everyone and there is comfort in always feeling a connection.
Janine likes to read, play with her kids, cook and draw. Fort St. John is ideally located with great wilderness access. Janine enjoys being active in the great outdoors because, “it’s just that, GREAT!”
Janine feels that Fort St. John will have it’s ups and downs but small businesses are always the places that residents like to visit and make efforts to support. “I think we will continue to invest in the community by buying, selling, and creating locally,” said Janine.
