Gold Star Wife Jennie Taylor brings her message of resilience and perseverance to 2022 SUMMIT attendees as the keynote speaker following her captivating presentation at the 2022 Veterans Conference.
Jennie is the widow of Army Major Brent Taylor, who was killed in Afghanistan by a member of the Afghan security forces in 2018. The National Guard officer was on his fourth year-long tour at the time of his death. Major Taylor was also the mayor of North Ogden, Utah, and the father of seven children – the youngest less than a year old.
Jennie has since started the Major Brent Taylor Foundation and was appointed a civilian aide to the Secretary of the Army in Utah. She is raising their seven children and shares her story of living through tragedy, moving forward, and creating a legacy of patriotism by being relentlessly resilient.
