Jenn Weaver's husband Staff Sergeant Jesse Weaver has gone through two deployments to Iraq during their marriage. Jenn says before Jesse's second tour of duty, she was searching online for a military support network. That's when she found militaryparents.com, fell in love with the idea of Marine families helping Marine families, and not long after, started volunteering her time as an online counselor herself. Weaver is one of 50 or so volunteers across the US that volunteers time to marineparents.com.
