Other members of the Jenkins family also did well in the college tennis tournament: Jack, the older brother, worked at Northwest University, and Jamal, the younger brother, was a star at the University of Virginia, and was named Atlantic Coast League Male of the Year in 2013.
After graduating from college, Jenkins became a coach and also coached Jamal, brother of NO. 190, who ranked highest in his career.
In July 2015, Jenkins joined the Big Williams team as a trainer. During his time with Jenkins, Williams returned to TOP5 and reached the finals at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the 2017 Finals.
Jenkins also introduced her younger brother to Williams Jr. when she had just finished giving birth and was looking for a suitable accompaniment, Jamal eventually agreed to cooperate with 23 Grand Slam champions.
Earlier this year, Jenkins was appointed National Womens Tennis Coach by the United States Tennis Association and Kathy Linaldi, president of the United States Womens Cup.
A few weeks later, Naoto Osaka announced that Jenkins would succeed Sasha Bakin as his coach.
