Kennisandra Jeffries Bio, Wiki

Kennisandra Arciniegas-Jeffries is the wife to Hakeem Jeffries, a U.S. Representative for New York’s 8th Congressional District who is also one of the House Managers in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.  Some supporters have called Hakeem and Kennisandra “the next Barack and Michelle Obama.”

Kennisandra has mostly stayed out of the spotlight. She rarely posts public statuses on social media or makes public interviews.

Kennisandra Jeffries Career

Kennisandra has worked as a social worker with 1199 SEIU’s Benefit Fund. According to a 2018 financial disclosure, Kennisandra received an income that year from Worksite Medical Service PC.

Hakeem Jeffries once joked in 2018 while giving a talk Beacon students that: “as aspiring politicians, you understand that you always acknowledge your wife at the very beginning.” His wife Kennisandra was in the audience at the time, making his joke even funnier.

Kennisandra Jeffries Children

Hakeem and Kennisandra have two sons: Jeremiah and Joshua. Jeremiah was born in 2001 and Joshua was born in 2004. Jeffries lives in Prospect Heights with his family, his bio notes. The Jeffries’ children also tend to stay out of the media spotlight.

In a 2014 interview with CNN Hakeem Jeffries said that we aren’t in a post-racial America yet and he’s worried about his sons’ future. His concerns weighed mostly on his older son who would be more likely to face interactions with the police.

The statement made in the interview read: “I’ve got to worry every day about what can happen to him (his older son), not just from the robbers but from a bad apple on the police department… The overwhelming majority of New York police officers are to be commended for the great work they’ve done… But there are bad apples on the police force, and when you unleash them without consequence, you see the type of tragedy that results.”

His comments about worrying about his children were later made into a meme and shared extensively by people who supported his political concerns.
