Jennifer is a native of St. Petersburg and 1991 graduate of Northeast High School. She attended the University of Mississippi ("Ole Miss") and graduated Cum Laude with a degree of Bachelor of Music in Choral Music Education in 1995. At that time, Jennifer was also inducted in to Pi Kappa Lambda, a music honors society that recognizes music majors for the highest level of musical achievement and academic scholarship.

Jennifer began her teaching career in Pasco County, FL at Thomas E. Weightman Middle School where she was the choral director and general music specialist. After her first year, she moved back to Pinellas County, FL and was the Director of Choral Music for 4 years at Dixie Hollins High School.

Jennifer moved to Grace Lutheran School in 2000. Joining the teaching staff at Grace was a great move, especially since Jennifer was already an active member in the Music Ministry at Grace Lutheran and singing in the choirs under the direction of then Minister of Music, Dr. Bill Brusick. Grace has always been close to her heart as she married her high school sweetheart, Jerry Tippett, who is a Grace Lutheran School alum, in 1997.

Jennifer holds her Florida Teaching Certificate in Music K-12 and has taught all levels of music at Grace. She became the Director of Music for the church and school in 2010. In the school, she currently teaches general music for 2nd through 5th grade and is the director of the Choristers (elementary choir), Spirit Singers (middle school choir), Drama Club, and directs the school musical. She is also a co-director for the school's Praise Team with her colleague, Colton LaMay. She is also an administrator of the Grace Conservatory of Fine Arts, which began in 2013. As a church musician, Jennifer oversees all of the activities, ensembles, and budget of the Music Ministry. She directs the Chancel Choir and Joy Choir and sings with the New Song Band. She is also a soloist with the Pinellas Lutheran Choir.

Jennifer and her husband, Jerry, live in St. Petersburg with their two children. J.P. and Elise are 2nd generation students at Grace Lutheran School. They live close to family and enjoy camping and other fun outdoor activities. The Tippetts are truly blessed to call Grace Lutheran Church & School their spiritual home.
