Adam was born on December 21, 1981 in Chicago, IL to Johnny and Juanita Jenkins. He married his best-friend and the love of his life Ana Barrios on February 28, 2015 in Elkhart, IN.

Adam worked in the RV industry. He had an infectious smile, he loved to make people laugh with his smart witted and snarky remarks. He loved being a kid at heart and being around kids. He had a talent for rapping, drawing, painting and simply fixing things around the house or fixing a car. He was a jack of all trades, there wasn’t anything he couldn’t do.  He enjoyed watching anime. He enjoyed beaches and sunsets. When the weather was right, he enjoyed kayaking with his family and friends and enjoying nature. His favorite was the time he spent with his family and friends, especially his wife.
