Jen Finegan

Hey! My name’s Jennifer. I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

Thank God ahead of time! Blessed Solanus Casey

I currently serve FOCUS in Denver at our national office, leading our donor relations and gift operations (DRGO) team. Our department helps our campus missionaries, staff, and donors by receiving and processing every gift that comes into FOCUS while managing several forms of communication for FOCUS national. We genuinely allow missionaries the beauty to be radically available on campus through our humble and hidden office work.

My Story

Formerly, I was a professional basketball player who came back to my Catholic faith after being evangelized by my college teammate. I heard about FOCUS while living in Slovakia and decided to leave pro-ball to become a missionary. I served at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, working with female athletes and coaches before the opportunity to serve at a national level. I am currently in my eighth year with FOCUS, and I feel honored to serve alongside men and women striving for holiness. I reside in Centennial, Colorado, with my husband, Patrick, and our daughter, Eliana Marie.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I served on campus and at our national office. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
