StoryCorps Phoenix: Jenny Rose and Mark Teismann
We are pleased to share the voices and conversations of our community from StoryCorps Phoenix. StoryCorps Phoenix is the project that records the stories of everyday people and archives them at the Library of Congress.
The StoryCorps Mobile Booth was parked at the Phoenix Art Museum and was been very busy. We’ll air a conversation each Monday on KJZZ as part of the Phoenix visit.
Mark Teismann and Jenny Rose came to StoryCorps to share their story.
Mark is Jenny’s biological father, but they did not spend Jenny’s childhood together. As a teenager, Jenny decided to find him.
Decades later, Mark and Jenny came to StoryCorps Phoenix.
