Malcolm Jenkins’ wife Morissa Jenkins is the mother of their daughter, Elle. She joined the Jenkins family in 2013, when the couple lived in New Orleans. Morissa showed up in a short profile on nflplayerengagement.com. She said they loved the city of New Orleans, but she welcomed the change to a new city when Malcolm became a free agent. Since she gave birth to Elle in that city, it held some special meaning for them. However, she said she relied on her faith to reassure her. She said the place they ended up was part of a plan.
Morissa commented about the transition to Philadelphia. She said the Eagles Organization made it very easy for them when they moved. Apparently Malcom Jenkins’ wife became close with Darren Sproles’ wife. Sproles also got traded to Philadelphia when Malcolm did, so Morissa found a friend to ease her into a new city and team. According to Morissa, the only problem they faced after they came to Phildelphia was the search for a home. It took them longer than they hoped it would, but they did settle into a nice house after months of searching. I saw some pictures Morissa posted of their neighborhood. Looks lovely.
Malcolm Jenkins’ wife also shares some of her living philosophies on social media. She encourages people to pursue active lifestyles. Morissa says life is about creating passionate and happy moments. She recommends not letting anyone stop you do the things you love (not even yourself). I enjoy reading nice messages like that from player wives especially when they write them themselves. In May, both Morissa and Elle participated in a charity fashion runway to help kids. I should also note the Malcolm Jenkins Foundation. Their goal is to help young kids develop character and leadership skills. The couple enjoy their charitable lifestyle in the great city of Philly.
