John JenkinsJohn Jenkins, Prince William County Supervisor, passed away this week, after serving our community for more than 35 years.

Superintendent of Schools Steve Walts has worked with Jenkins for 14 years, and praised his dedication to students and the community.

“This gentle giant of the Dale City community was one of the strongest supporters of public education and specifically, Prince William County Public Schools,” Walts said.

Jenkins represented the Neabsco District on the County Board of Supervisors. He and his wife, Earnestine, frequently attended PWCS events to show their support for our students and schools. They most recently attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for Independence Nontraditional School, which opened at the beginning of this school year. Earnestine attended the ground-breaking for “Parkway” Elementary School, representing John while he was ill.

Walts went on to say, “He was an amazing champion of our students and his legacy of support for children will live on forever. The Neabsco District will always remember a hero in John Jenkins.”
