Our September 2013 ISLE heroine is Mercedes Jennings!
“Mercy” recently achieved a dream of securing her own home and moving in with her beau, Jimmy Pezzone. Mercy also has some physical maladies that she battles day to day. She confronts her medical issues with courage and determination. Mercy also works the reception area of the Purple Cat at the Pearl Street Mission. She rarely misses work and is always festooned with a smile.
Mercy is also a very instrumental member of the Hope Club, a group of adults with disabilities that meets at Easter Seals. She is shown here with one of her biggest fans, Kevin.
Keep truckin’ Mercy!
