    Jennifer Sharron Richardson joined the Monogram Club Board of Directors in 2012 to serve a three-year term ending in 2015.

    Sharron has been a member of the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" production team since its inception in 2003 and currently serves as a producer for the show. In that role, she manages on-air content and supervises the field department, and is responsible for producing pre-taped and live comedy segments for the show.

    Before her promotion to producer in 2011, Sharron was a field producer for the show and worked closely with a series of A-list celebrities, to create more than 1,000 pre-taped comedy segments, interviews and scripted pieces.

    The only lefthander to pitch for the Fighting Irish in program history, Sharron became the first BIG EAST student-athlete to win the conference's pitcher of the year award four consecutive times (1998-2001). She sits among Notre Dame's all-time leaders in wins (88), complete games (76), and innings pitched (722.1). A two time All-American (2000-01), Sharron also earned Academic All-America honors as a senior. A two-year team captain (2000-2001), she led her team to NCAA Tournament appearances in three of her four seasons on the mound.

    Sharron graduated from Notre Dame in 2001 with a degree in FTT (Film, Television and Theatre), and competed for the United States Women's National Softball Team, along with teammates Elizabeth Lemire and Jarrah Myers Kennedy, during the summer following her senior year.

    Sharron returned to Notre Dame in the fall of 2001 to take an internship with the Athletics Department, and moved to Los Angeles the following year to serve as a production assistant on the "NFL on FOX" pre-game show. She worked on the Jimmy Kimmel segment of the program before joining Kimmel's late-night staff in 2003.

    Sharron lives in Woodland Hills, Calif., with her husband, Christopher Richardson, and their son, Ethan.
