Jimmy Pennise

Teacher/Mentor

Jimmy began working with Fusion in March of 2016 as a Math & Science Teacher. He’s originally from the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in rural upstate New York. Growing up there, he spent a lot of time outdoors, developing his passion for nature, and eventually earning the rank of Eagle Scout. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Coaching, from the State University of New York at Brockport. During his college career he competed as student-athlete in Division III wrestling, earning All-American honors during his senior year. He has a passion for food and sustainability, and this spark drove him to earn his chef certificate from the Natural Gourmet Institute in Manhattan. When he’s not Teaching in the classroom, you’ll find him traveling, exploring nature, or at a local market, looking for the next delicious thing to cook up for dinner.
