Rep. Jeanne McNeill's Biography

Jeanne McNeill was elected to serve the 133rd Legislative District in 2017. Although born and raised in Bethlehem, she has lived in the 133rd District for over 27 years, having raised two daughters, Kathleen and Shannon, along with her husband, the late state representative of the 133rd District Daniel McNeill.

Jeanne has always been a champion of those in need. For the past 14 years, she has been employed by CLIU 21 as a skills trainer teaching job skills, independence, and life skills to young adults with disabilities in order to give them the independence, self-esteem and opportunity they need to become productive members of society. Before becoming a skills trainer, Jeanne was employed by Parkland High School in the College Resource Room, assisting students with the difficult selection of which college to attend as well as their field of study.

Community service has always been a top priority for her, from organizing donations for fire victims and fundraising events for cancer patients, to hosting Thanksgiving dinners for those in need and serving spaghetti dinners at her church. Jeanne has always been there for friends and strangers alike and will bring that passion, dedication and willingness to further serve the constituents throughout her legislative district. Jeanne will carry on her late husband’s work, as was his wish, and continue to fight for working families, seniors and women’s rights, against discrimination of any kind, and the right for the physically and mentally challenged to have the same opportunities as the rest of the residents of this commonwealth. She is also committed to addressing the opioid crisis that is plaguing this state and taking more lives young and old every day. She will continue the shared vision of her late husband of bettering the lives of the residents of the 133rd District as well as those across Pennsylvania.

Jeanne lives in Whitehall Township, and spends her free time with her daughters and grandchildren Kenzie, Isabelle, and Lincoln. She attends community events as her schedule permits.
