Melissa Leone Jardim

Melissa Leone Jardim is a 35 year old Vaughan native. She works and lives in Vaughan with her husband and two sons. She is currently an administrative assistant and has also worked in predominant law firms as a legal assistant. However, her primary, and most rewarding job, is mom.

Since the early birth of both her boys, she volunteers her time to making people aware of premature birth.  She recently joined a not for profit organization that supports families that will be spending the holiday season in the NICU with their premature baby. Melissa played a vital role in coordinating the not for profit’s initiative to include Vaughan’s Mackenzie Health Hospital.

When not busy, you can find her at various soccer and baseball fields in Vaughan cheering for her sons!
