James was born in Worcester, one of six children of Michael A. Jennette, Jr. and Mae Louise (Carey) Jennette. He graduated from Burncoat Senior High School and accepted a position in the construction industry and began to raise a family. One day, while working on a job site, James injured himself and became a Quadra paraplegic. Never saying why me, he looked his future in the eye and found ways that his injury couldn’t deter what he wanted to do, enjoying his family, his hobbies and his life to the fullest until this day.

Jenray and her wife Vanessa, John P. “Jack” Jennette and his fiancée Margaret “Peggy” Hamel; a granddaughter he cherished Jayla M. Lentz; Eleven nieces and nephews, many extended family members and friends.
