Deana was elected to the Zion council in December, and will be serving a three-year term.
Please tell us about your family:
I am married to Mike Jeske and live in Buffalo. I am the daughter of Ray and Dianne Hermosillo who have both passed away. I have an amazing Aunt Sue who is like our second Mom and 4 sisters who are also members of Zion: Denise Kuhlman, Devonne Kent, Dianna Hermosillo, and Lori Harris.
Where do you work?
I am employed at Groebner in Monticello, a Natural Gas Distribution, as an Executive Assistant . I also bartended and waitress part time at the Buffalo American Legion.
What are some of the ways that you have been involved with Zion’s ministries?
I have been a lifelong member of Zion, where I have volunteered in the nursery, and taught Sunday school, last year I was also a member of the Call Committee (a very personal honor). My Faith in God has strengthened me, due in large part to the loss of my parents and to the fellowship of Zion members.
Why do you serve on the Church Council?
Serving on the Call Committee was an experience that made me want to contribute more to our church and get more involved with Zion’s mission. With God’s help, I pray that I am able to do just that.
What are your other interests in the community?
I would like to be involved with the Buffalo Food Shelf. In my free time I enjoy being with my family and friends. I love summer and boating! I also enjoy volleyball, bowling, golfing, camping (roasting s’mores!), and I enjoy playing cards and board games.
