Melissa Jenks

Estate Planning & Trust Administration Assistant

After graduating from our local Murrieta Valley High School, Melissa earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences from San Diego State University, graduating Magna Cum Laude.
Before joining the Shoup Legal team in 2017, Melissa worked in hazard insurance claim management at a San Diego law firm. After moving back to Menifee to be closer to family, Melissa began her work in the estate planning field at The Law Office of Jack D. Brown, and it was there that her love for estate planning and trust administration developed.
Melissa takes pride in a job well done and attention to detail, which are necessary components of a successful estate plan or trust administration. She is also grateful to have many opportunities to be of service to families during some of their most difficult times and strives to perform her duties with compassion and integrity.
Melissa lives in Menifee with her husband and two children. When not at work, she enjoys being a soccer mom, spending time with family, and listening to anything written by The Beatles.
