She received her Associate of Arts from Oxford College of Emory University and went on to receive her bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a major in Computer Information Systems from Georgia State University, while also starting her professional career with Coca-Cola.

Now living in Jacksonville, Dorothy has worked in many businesses including the Federal Reserve Bank and several small, privately-owned companies. Jacksonville is also the place where she and her husband of over 30 years, Jim, have their family with three children. Carlisle, their oldest, is a mechanical engineer who works on F-18s at NAS Jacksonville. Emily, the middle child, works as a kindergarten teacher in Tallahassee. Sarah, her youngest, is a full time student at Florida State University and an alumni of the JCC Touring Choir. Once her children were all in school, Dorothy became a teacher in Duval County Public Schools at Dinsmore Elementary, where she taught second through fourth grade students for 15 years.

It was through Sarah, her youngest, that Dorothy began to volunteer with The Jacksonville Children’s Chorus. Through her personal experience, Dorothy developed a love and an appreciation for the JCC. As the Program Manager for the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus, Dorothy feels that her new role serves everything she loves – children, music, and working in a business-related position. Dorothy is excited to be a part of the JCC family.

  


 

JORDAN WETHERELL

Development Associate
353-1636, ext. 7 | Email

Jordan is originally from a small town outside of Flint, Michigan, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Research Psychology with a minor in Theater. She went on to move to San Diego to work in the Film & Television industry, where she coordinated travel for a wide variety of productions with hotel vendors across the country. With her love of fostering meaningful relationships and passion for the Choral Arts, she has since become the Development Associate with high aspirations to help bring the joy of singing to as many children in Jacksonville as possible.

Jordan has always had an affinity for the creative arts, but her love for choir has always come above all else. Her best memories of growing up come from the many years she spent in different choirs within her school district. When she relocated to Jacksonville from California, she never would have guessed an organization like the JCC existed. Now she is living out her dream of having music at the forefront of her day-to-day life, while taking pride in knowing she gets to help the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus maximize its impact in giving children the ability to flourish with a strong musical education in the same way that she did.

Advertising & Marketing Intern

Savannah Rooney was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. She is attending The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City but is currently studying remotely in Jacksonville. She is in her third and final year of her bachelor's degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications.

As an avid member of band, chorus, and drama growing up, a singer and music creator herself, a position at the JCC was the perfect place for her. She is so happy not only be growing her professional skills but to be serving the children of the Jacksonville community as well. She is a Christian and in her free time loves to cook, create music, and videos. She hopes to serve the JCC the best that she can in her time here! 

“It is gratifying the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus program covers so much of what is not available to children in the Duval Public Schools. The children who have an opportunity to participate in your Chorus are very fortunate to have this outstanding musical training available to them. The entire community benefits from your talent and that of the children.”

Dr. Frances B. Kinne , Former Chancellor Emeritus and Past President, Jacksonville University

“Music plays a major role in the full development of a child. Not only does it enrich lives, it also serves as a pathway for students to express themselves and explore new ways to communicate with others. For 20 years, kudos to the JCC for molding the lives of young artists, and I look forward to the next 20 years.”

Tim Cost, President, Jacksonville University

“Being a part of the JCC has not only allowed Christian to experience the fun, excitement and pleasure of singing with friends, it has also helped him to develop a sense of confidence that comes from life skills of hard work and perseverance.”

Elaine Bourne, JCC Parent

“Music is such a valuable part of life. The way it enriches one’s life and encourages creativity, I do not believe anything else can do as much. We in Jacksonville are certainly blessed to have the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus.”

Scott C. Snyder, President, Compass Consulting Group

“I was in the Jacksonville Children's Chorus in 1999-2002. It helped me to build long lasting friendships and a greater love for music. To this day I still remember the fun times and great concerts we did in the JCC. I think this organization is great for children of all ages, it helps build confidence and friendships.”

Bethany, Former Member
