Jennifer and husband, Jason Pinedo moved to Loyalton from the Grass Valley area in July of 2012. They like the close knit community.
Jennifer has always thought the post office was “cool.” Her great-grandfather worked as a mail carrier in Queens, New York where she was raised. She remembers the uniforms as being military.
She started with the Chilcoot Post Office for just three months before coming to Loyalton in 2020 as a part-time Flexible Clerk. Former Postmaster Nicole Barbarela left early this year and Jennifer has been acting Postmaster. The position was made permanent last Friday. She’s proud of the community’s many small businesses and has a lot of ideas such as “Business Connect,” where businesses are brought together and introduced.
When not at the post office, Jennifer can be found with kids, Joshua, 13 and Mary Jane, 10 at their ball games.
