John '02 and Jennifer Hogan

Focused on complementing each other’s strengths and weaknesses and giving back to the community, John Hogan and Jennifer Dooley-Hogan are the driving force behind Kenosha’s top marketing team.

“Work and marriage share many similarities: A need for compromise; the ability to recognize your own weaknesses and the strengths of your counterpart(s); and, most importantly, to take joy in the journey and cherish the successes you have together,” said John Hogan, Director of Digital Media at Dooley & Associates.

“I’m not sure it is for everyone, but I can tell you that my life is made all the more rewarding having my wife as my closest colleague.”

The couple has co-sponsored the Kenosha Literacy Council Spelling Bee for the past six years.

“I’d say giving back is something we’re very committed to together,” Dooley-Hogan said. “We want to leave our corner of the world better than we found it for our employees to the community we call home.”

The Dooley & Associates crew is actively involved with numerous local organizations including Kenosha Area Business Alliance, Downtown Kenosha Inc., Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce, Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha, God’s Kitchen, Kenosha Literacy Council, St. Joseph Catholic Academy and many special events.
