In 1986 Jill married Ned Dennin, a 1984 graduate of the United States Naval Academy, and they relocated to Virginia Beach, Virginia where she worked in fundraising for the Virginia Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, while Ned served on the USS Mississippi.
In 1989, Jill and Ned relocated to Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania, and began raising their family. Jill and Ned have four adult sons, Mark, Craig, Scott, and Kyle, all graduates of Boyertown Area Senior High School.
