In addition to her Dublin Chamber role, Amorose has served as a member of the Dublin City Schools Business Advisory Council, Dublin City Schools Alumni Association and the first chairperson of the Dublin City Schools Alumni Hall of Fame Committee. As Chamber COO, she is an advocate for the business community and helps coordinate resources and services when businesses consider moving to Dublin.

“Dublin has been a part of who I am for my entire life,” said Amorose, a Dublin City Schools alumna. “I am extremely grateful for this recognition and can’t think of a higher honor than being selected as grand marshal for one of Dublin’s most treasured events.”
Amorose was nominated for the honor by former Grand Marshals Page and Cheryl Vornbrock and was confirmed by the Grand Marshal Selection Committee.
“Cheryl and I are extremely proud of Jenny Amorose for what she has contributed to our Dublin business community, to our schools and to the citizens of Dublin,” said Page Vornbrock, a Dublin resident. “We can’t think of anyone more deserving of this honor.”
Amorose is the proud mother of two adult daughters, Julie and Jillian Jakse.
