Throughout the month of September, Wesley was honored to have the artwork of Spc. Abigail Jenks on display in the gallery. Abby’s mother, Mary Jenks, an LPN on Wesley’s 2 Hathorn, presented her daughter’s artwork. Specialist Abigail Jenks was a member of the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, N.C. who died during a training jump in April 2021. Abigail was a lifelong artist and Mary has created a collection of her daughter’s artwork for a memorial art show.
