Meryl Esslinger

Facility Assistant


Hi, I'm Meryl.

Meryl, sometimes known as “Jingles” because of the sound of her jingling key ring, is PCC’s Facility Assistant. She coordinates the details of all events happening in the church building and makes them a reality. She was born and raised in the Bronx, New York, and became a Hoosier in 1973. She is highly-organized and always has a smile for everyone. She is married to her wonderful husband, Michael, and they have five children, thirteen grandchildren (one in heaven). And of course, they have their furry friend, Dusty the American Dingo.
