“Everyone loved Jenna, she had such an impact on those around her,” said Ellen Sigety, Jenna’s mother.
Faith was an anchor in Jenna’s life, serving on youth committees for the Church of Jesus Christ, leading youth groups, and attending early-morning seminary scripture classes.
She was the youngest of five children, including her twin sister, Tessa, who named her oldest daughter Jenna, a first grader, in her sister’s honor.
ABOUT VOLLEY FOR JENNA VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT
Every October, volleyball players of all ages and abilities come together for a good cause: to raise scholarship money in Jenna’s name through LEF.
“She loved the game so much that she never wanted to stop playing. We wanted to focus on that legacy and how much she loved volleyball, loved the camaraderie, and how it brought her teammates together,” said John Sigety, Jenna’s father. “This tournament is a continuation of her spirit in bringing the community together and remembering what Jenna stood for, her character, and love of people.”
This year, the Volley for Jenna tournament has been cancelled to abide by public safety regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event is typically hosted every homecoming weekend by the Lewisville Student Council, of which Jenna was a part of, including the Rowdy Crowd, National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and both the soccer and volleyball teams.
ABOUT THE LEF JENNA SIGETY SCHOLARSHIP
The year Jenna passed away, one scholarship was started by Jenna’s third grade Valley Ridge Elementary teacher and continues today. However, Jenna’s oldest sister Hayley, was determined to do more. That was when she formulated the idea of creating a scholarship fund through Jenna’s love of volleyball.
As the tournament grew, so did the LEF scholarships. In year’s past, scholarships were given to one or two LHS seniors, however last year the foundation was able to provide every senior volleyball player with a $500 scholarship. They hope to continue that tradition this year. To date, they have given out 17 scholarships.
