Lee Marinelli Jordan was elected School Board Director in 2015. As a lifelong resident of Drexel Hill and a proud graduate of the Upper Darby School District (Aronimink Elementary School, Drexel Hill Junior High and Upper Darby High School), Lee has a very unique perspective on the needs of the district’s students, families, teachers and taxpayers. Lee and her husband have raised their three daughters on the same street she grew up on, and all three girls are graduates of the Upper Darby School District.
Lee earned her Bachelors of Science Degree in Human Resources from Widener University and has had a successful career at ARCO Chemical Company and is currently working full-time at Everchem Specialty Chemicals in Media, Pennsylvania. Prior to being elected to School Board Director, Lee served on the Executive Board of the Home and School Associations at Aronimink Elementary School, Drexel Hill Middle School, and Upper Darby High School, as well being on the Board of the Upper Darby High School Choral Music Association (CMA). Lee’s volunteerism and dedication to the district and students was recognized in 2015 when she was nominated by teachers for “Making a Difference” and was highlighted in a video.
One of Lee’s proudest accomplishments with the CMA was her seven years chairing the hospitality committee which raised thousands of dollars to help defray the costs of choir trips and competitions.
Lee is no stranger to public service. Her parents, Gene and Annetta Marinelli, were the founders of the Aronimink/Pilgrim Gardens Civic Association and instilled in their children the need to get involved in the community. In addition to her involvement with the School District, Lee also served as President of the Aronimink/Pilgrim Gardens Civic Association, President of Aronimink Swim Club and as a volunteer for the Darby Creek Valley Association, Upper Darby Historical Society, Saint Dorothy Parish and making meals for the Philadelphia Children’s Hospital Ronald McDonald House.
Lee will continue to fight and lobby in Harrisburg for the fair funding that our wonderful community so much deserves because she knows that a strong public school system is the backbone of any community.
