Q&A with Jennings

Q: What most excites you about your work in the ticket office and the contribution you make?
CJ: To get to work with people on the front lines, but from a different view than marketing/promotions. Helping people out is always satisfying.

Q: In your work or creative process, what concepts are most sacred to you and why?
CJ: I love Photoshop, and the graphics I’ve created for Cassell Guard, as well as marketing, are very close to me.

Q: What are one to three words that best encapsulate who you are?
CJ: Always Hungry (motivated, and actually).

Q: Name the five songs that would best describe the soundtrack of your life.
CJ: Enter Sandman, I lived, Best Day of My Life, The Baseball Song, Don’t Worry Be Happy.

Q: Who is the one person, dead or alive, you would most like to have a conversation with and why?

Q: What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy? What can’t you stop talking about?
CJ: Baseball, or sports in general. Sports are my life, so I’m always thinking about sports.

Q: Where can we find you when you’re not working? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon?
CJ: Probably on a baseball field somewhere or relaxing with friends outside somewhere.

Q: What would be impossible for you to give up?

Q: What is the No. 1 item at the top of your bucket list currently?
CJ: Get to a Mets game and then visit all 30 baseball stadiums.
