Jennie Dean was the inaugural Treasurer of the West Belconnen Athletics Club starting in May 2001. Jennie had also served in the same position with the Ginninderra West Belconnen Little Athletics Centre from the 2000/01 season.
On the 7th January 2002 Jennie passed away.
In memory of Jennie and her dedication to the Club, a plaque was erected on the Long Jump pit nearest the Amenities Building at Charnwood District Playing Fields. Jennie was instrumental in assisting the club in obtaining the funds to build the Long Jump pit.
Jennie is also remembered through the Jennie Dean perpetual trophy which is awarded to senior athletes who have excelled over the years at Ginninderra Little Athletics and ACTLAA Competitions. One is awarded to a female athlete and the other to a male athlete as decided by the Committee.
May she rest in peace.
