It appears that little Jack Francis Kenny could not wait to get to Rock away. Despite a March 28 due date, Jack decided to arrive on February 25, born in Staten Island University Hospital to Belle Harbor attorneys Jeanette Mercedes and her husband, life-long Rockaway resident Paul Kenny.
Jack will be greeted by his big sister, Bishop Kearney High School freshman Kristen Kenny, along with his grandparents, Rita Kenny (of Belle Harbor), James Kenny, and Aristida Segura. He is grandchild number 18 for the Kenny’s, all of whom grew up in Belle Harbor. He joins his Roxbury cousins, Paulina, Theresa and John Paul "little Goose" Kenny, and their parents, Christine Reid Kenny and John "Goose" Kenny on the peninsula.
