Jenna Wilson

Born down the street from the Park Blocks at Good Sam Hospital in Portland, Oregon, Jenna's parents worked hard to guide her and her older sister in the right direction.  Both parents worked 9-5 jobs and were able to all meet at the dinner table after whatever sports practice was on the calendar that afternoon. Jenna's father coached her in softball from a young age until he sent her off to college at MHCC where she played softball and attended Cosmetology school.  Once she completed her Cosmetology degree, Jenna wanted to continue her education and her love for the game of softball. She enrolled at PSU and played for the Portland State Vikings softball team. After a great two years of softball at PSU, Jenna wanted to continue to be part of the team. She decided to get her Master's in Education and became a graduate assistant coach for the PSU softball team in 2010.  Jenna then worked for the athletic department until 2014. She continued to stay in sports when she worked for the Portland Trail Blazers at the Moda Center before finding her way back to Portland State as the General Manager of the Viking Pavilion at the Peter W. Stott Center. In this position, Jenna works with student workers to provide quality events in the arena to outside groups as well as internal and student lead groups.
