"Bill" Jennaro was a highly-regarded Judge, mediator, arbitrator and attorney. He started his career with Rita at his side as an Assistant DA, leading him to the position of Children's Court Public Defender and then presided on the bench as a County and Circuit Court Judge until 1984 when he felt it best suited to serve his community as an exceptional attorney. Not only were his legal accomplishments countless, but the devotion and pride in his family and heritage engaged him in roles with the Italian Community Center and many leadership roles in Festa Italiana. He truly has touched everyone who knew him and will be undoubtedly a gentleman tremdously missed by all.
