Not many people can say that they lost their first tooth in Camper Registration at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, but for Jennifer Hantosh née Neunteufel, EAA 1218066, that’s just one of her many memories of attending AirVenture as a child. Jennifer has been not only attending AirVenture since she was young, but also volunteering. She continues to greet AirVenture attendees as a third-generation volunteer. Jennifer’s grandparents started EAA Chapter 101 in 1962 in Addison, Illinois. The late summer pilgrimage to AirVenture has been a family tradition ever since.
“We would make the trip up to Oshkosh at night so that the kids would sleep on the way,” Jennifer recalled, “and there would always be anticipation once we arrived and started working in Camper Registration.”
If Jennifer’s maiden name sounded familiar, it is because Neunteufel Lane, the road that leads to Camper Registration at Camp Scholler, is named after her grandmother, Dolores Neunteufel. Dolores helped start Chapter 101 with her husband, Al, as well as the family tradition of volunteering at AirVenture. Jill Schumacher, EAA’s manager of convention administration, spoke fondly of the Neunteufel legacy here at Oshkosh. “Jennifer’s family has been deeply involved with EAA for many years, not only during our annual AirVenture gathering, but also at the chapter level. Her grandmother, Dolores, who was a dedicated volunteer in various capacities for decades, groomed Jennifer for the Assistance Center chairman position. Although Jennifer was relatively young when named as chairman, she firmly and confidently grabbed the baton … and has carried on the family tradition of being a first stop welcoming smile for our attendees.”
Now a mom with three kids of her own, Jennifer works at the Assistance Center outside the Main Gate and the Information Booth Kiosk inside the Main Gate. She enjoys seeing people from the start to the finish of their AirVenture experience…
