Marcu, Jennifer CROP“Everyone has times when they are down and out, and I try to encourage others that things get better, and that you can get through it. We’ve gone from very little to where we are now, and it’s been a hard road to get here but it was worth it.”

From her husband, Nicolae: A little over a year after Jenny started driving she was diagnosed with uterine cancer through an unfortunate series of events. She never looked back, held her head high, and kept on trucking. She is a great inspiration to never give up the fight for anything.

She has also been a great inspiration to me. Since she came out on the road with me she has helped me to lose over 100 pounds, as well as losing nearly that much herself. She likes to cook for me, and any of our driver friends that are around. Every year at Christmas we have adopted a family and donated gifts to those who are having a hard time, as well as donating clothes to local shelters. She truly is beautiful, inside and out, and would be a perfect candidate for this honor.
