Jennean Rogers – Our Very Own Giants Super Fan
Jennean Rogers is not only an exceptional administrative supervisor who has been with Dignity Health’s Woodland Healthcare for 27 years, she is also a SF Giants Super Fan.
Born and raised in Woodland, California Jennean went to games at Candlestick with her dad, attended the last game at the ‘Stick with her own family, and made sure they were all there for the first game at Pac Bell Park. Jennean also sat in left field right behind Barry Bond’s last game, attended games during the 1989 World Series, met Juan Marichal and Willie Mays in person, and made it to the 2010 World Championship parade in San Francisco.
She loves the entire roster, but when pressed to choose, since she’s always been a fan of catchers, so no surprise Jennean’s favorite player is Buster Posey.
It’s no secret at Dignity Health that Jennean is a super fan. When CEO, Lloyd Dean visited the Woodland facility noticed all of Jennean’s Giant’s bobble heads and fan décor he arranged for Jennean and 18 of her Giants-loving co-workers see a game in the corporate suite at AT&T park.
Jennean also has a reputation among her colleagues as being a bit superstitious. Jennean’s game day rituals (she calls them “particles”) include wearing all orange and black, and if not wearing her lucky orange flip flops, at least carrying them with her. She’s also got the orange and black manicure and the Giants’ gift basket she left in her car that she is certain contributed to the 2010 World Series win. And finally,a new “particle” for this year includes always wearing her orange Hello humankindness tee shirt on game day.
Jennean’s fondest Giants memories are the ones she’s shared with her family and friends. She also remembers the feeling of attending the World Series parade in 2010 and thinking how amazing it was (mainly because it was such a long time coming) but also because she could feel the release of all of her “particles”…well at least for a little while.
