RIPE Jennifer Jones
Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland
Jennifer is the Founder and President of Media Street Productions Inc., a twenty-five-year old, award-
winning media company in Windsor, Ontario. She is a proud member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-
Her talents have strengthened Rotary reach and impact, through many roles including as Trustee of the
Rotary Foundation, RI Vice President, and co-chair of the End Polio Now: Make History Today
campaign, raising funds alongside Bill and Melinda Gates and their Foundation.
Jennifer is a leader in cultivating “experiential fundraising” opportunities such as Rotary’s Polio Golf Day
with Jack Nicklaus in Jupiter, Florida, USA, which raised over $5.25 million for polio eradication in one
day. Or, the innovative, virtual COVID-19 #RotaryResponds event that raised money for COVID-19
relief projects and showcased Rotary’s response across the globe.
Working alongside political figures, celebrities and global leaders, she uses her voice to raise
awareness and hundreds of millions of dollars to eradicate disease, support peace and provide clean
water and sanitation in developing areas of the world. Her skill as an expert storyteller inspires hope
and promise and motivates people to take action.
She has received many honours and recognitions including Rotary’s Service above Self Award and the
Citation for Meritorious Service, the YMCA Peace Medallion, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, and
Wayne State University’s Peacemaker of the Year Award – a first for a Canadian.
Jennifer is married to Rotarian Nick Krayacich, a local family physician. They share a love for many
things including travel, cycling, golf and relaxing at their family cottage; and they share a thirst for
adventure, which has included cresting the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa.
