Our Board (Vestry)

Leading in a church is no easy task! We appreciate the Spirit-led work that our Vestry members do on behalf of the broader congregation. If you have any questions, concerns or ideas regarding St. Mark’s from facilities to liturgy, talk to a Vestry member today.

Our Vestry covenants to be a group of learning leaders.  Together with our priest, we pray and work on steering the ministry of loving God and serving neighbors at St Mark's. 

We also laugh together quite often.

Mary Jane Jennetti

I am starting my second year on the Vestry where I welcome newcomers and do outreach. I am retired from the Santa Clara County Office of Education where I worked for many years with special needs children.  Music has always been a hobby and I currently play violin in a senior orchestra and in a quartet. I also enjoy working out in the gym, being a member of a neighborhood book club, and heading up the weekly Racist Anonymous group which I started at the church this past September.

Born and raised San Jose, I attended San Jose State University. There, I studied Creative Arts, and I fenced. Since college, I have traveled extensively, both for work and for pleasure. I am a marketing consultant to start-ups and larger companies. I have been married to my wife Elham since 2006. I am also the father of two boys, one attending the University of Arizona and the other in elementary school.

Sharon Martin

Sharon Martin, a native San Josean, has been a St. Mark’s parishioner for 35 years. And all that time, she has sung in the choir and served in other ways too — as a Eucharistic minister, lay reader, vestry member, founder of the St. Mark’s Poetry Project, leader of the Stephen Ministry program, and facilitator of many adult formation groups. She is an alumna of Notre Dame High School in San Jose, Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont and San Jose State University. In 2008, she retired after 23 years as a program manager at Apple and began part-time and volunteer work in the non-profit sector. She has two grown daughters (Cherie and Annmarie—also singers!) and one 13-year-old grandson (Jack), and she still lives in her childhood home, six blocks from St. Mark’s.

Shari Corbett

I have attended St. Marks for 15 years.  My journey in the Christian faith started with a ride on a Baptist Bible school church bus, got off the Baptist Sunday school bus and hooked a ride into the Methodist youth group, and finally selected to ride the Episcopal church experience in my freshman year of college.  I like to rock in the rocking chair. The Methodist church had a 24 hour rock-a-thon where we raised money for something; I signed up for "porch rocking" as an activity at my first Episcopal retreat (ask me about that)  and helped an Army buddy buy a rocking chair in the middle of the night to get his daughter to stop crying. I am currently a teacher in a public high school in San Jose.  Water sports are my favorite and I love swimming with dolphins.

Mary Pfister

I was born in Cardiff, Wales, Great Britain and was raised as an Episcopalian by my parents.
Having been a member of Saint Mark's Church for four years, I have participated in the
Restoration Committee. Currently I am serving on the Vestry and am helping with arranging the
books for sale and with the weekly counting.

Before joining Saint Marks, I had retired from working in the healthcare field as a clinical
laboratory scientist and as an instructor for medical assistants and phlebotomists at Ohlone
Community College.

Now my personal interests are in traveling, studying real estate strategies, watching movies and listening to classic jazz music.
