Meet your neighbors: The Quinn family

Both Jesslyn and Jerry Quinn grew up a stones throw away from Helena in Hoover, Alabama with Jerry riding his childhood four-wheeler from the Hoover Metropolitan Complex down to Helena in what is now the Riverwoods neighborhood.

The couple met when Jerry was attending Auburn University at the same time as Jesslyn’s sister. Jesslyn drove down one weekend to visit the campus, and according to Jerry, the rest was history. Twenty three years later, the couple is still happily together.

Together, the two moved to Helena after watching the city grow.

“We loved the small town atmosphere of Helena and the historic Old Town,” Jerry said. “We started an electrical contractors business three years ago and the community has supported us from the beginning.”

In Helena, the couple had three children: Brooks (10), William (8) and Maggie (6). In addition to being involved in their church, the Church at Old Town, and all three children are involved in Helena sports. You can find the Quinn family attending Brooks’ baseball or football games, cheering for William at the soccer pitch and encouraging Maggie in ballet and cheer.

Together, the Quinn family and their two dogs, Peaches and Georgie, enjoy going to the lake, the pool, or the hunting club.

“We love all types of adventures and do a lot of them,” Jerry said. “We are a close little family of five and do a lot together!”
