Growing up and being part of the Coral Springs community for more than 30 years encouraged Jason and Jennifer Foti to raise their own children here! Sons James, 8, and Jack, 11, stay active with their friends from school and their teammates from baseball. The two of them also enjoy art club in their school where they attend the third and sixth grades. James’ favorite subject is reading and Jack’s is math.
Jennifer is a kindergarten teacher in Coral Springs. She tells us, “ I love teaching Kindergarten and instilling a love of learning at an early age. I want the kids to look forward to coming to school each day and have it be a positive experience.”
Jason is a Sergeant for the Coral Springs Police Department and supervisor of the youth liaison unit. This consists of supervising the schools in Coral Springs, the crossing guards and the Coral Springs Police Explorer Program. He has an important perspective and says, “I’m a career law enforcement officer and a MSD Alumnus. I was a first responder at Marjory Stoneman Douglas and what happened that day affected me deeply. I mourn for those families. I feel fortunate to have an opportunity to supervise in the unit that protects students attending school in the City of Coral Springs. I’m proud to work for a my Department because they are an organization that provides the most advanced training to ensure officers are well-prepared and well-equipped.”
This husband, father and law enforcement officer offers a viewpoint of solidarity and mutual concern with parents everywhere. “With a wife who is a school teacher and two children in public school, I understand when residents contact the police department concerned for the safety of their children. This is a concern for parents nationwide and I just want to be part of the solution.”
Jason has been coaching James and Jack in baseball since T-ball. He has served as a board member for Coral Springs American Little League. Jennifer and Jason both played sports in Coral Springs as children.
Jennifer tells us, “When we have breaks from baseball, we enjoy slowing down and just BBQing and swimming in the backyard. We took a road trip this past winter to Tennessee so the kids could see snow for the first time.“
Jason tells us what their family enjoys most about living in Coral Springs. “We love how family friendly and safe the city is. We love to take our kids places that we enjoyed as kids like Mullins Park and the Our Town Festival.”
The Foti family attends St. Elizabeth Ann Seton catholic church.
