Jerome Shannon is originally from Massachusetts and has been living and loving Chicago for nine years. After graduating from the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, he spent a few years working in the radio industry but returned to his passion when he began working in after school programs in his hometown of Milton, MA. Special education has always been a focus for Jerome and after spending a few years working at Giant Steps, a day therapy school for Autism, he found his home here at Ancona. He has been a Learning Aide at Ancona for five years, the head coach of the flag football team for three years, and is now the Director of Auxiliary Programs. When Jerome is not biking somewhere or playing bass, he is cheering on the New England Patriots or hanging with his wife at her store Apartment 528.
