Our Story

Both Jane and Jenny are active moms, devoted wives, and very, very busy. Jane was frazzled over trying to pull off dinner for the family week after week. Her meal plans were scribbled on napkins and lost in her purse. So she went to work creating a better way to make meals happen. Along the way, Jane recruited Jenny, who is not only a fabulous cook, but also happens to be her sister.

Working with a talented team of professional meal planners, experienced home cooks and technical gurus, they developed eMeals to feed their families and preserve their sanity. Hundreds of thousands of relationships later, Jane and Jenny built a way to make moms’ lives easier — and to bring families together at mealtime.

Jenny Cochran, EVP and Co-Founder

Having co-founded eMeals with her sister, Jenny helped define the eMeals culture and was instrumental in the original design and publishing of the meal plans. An avid cook, Jenny gravitates to Southern comfort food, pickles and peppers of any kind, healthy dishes with strong flavors and most ethnic foods. Jenny’s motivation for eMeals came from a love of food and more importantly a love for her family of five whose favorite meals include Chicken Divan, beef enchiladas, breakfast foods and a low country boil on special occasions.

Aaron Kenny, CTO

Aaron is basically the creative genius giving direction to the technical side of eMeals. Previously Aaron was the Co-Founder and CTO of InternetSafety.com where he developed the family protection software that was rated #1 by Consumer Reports, PC Magazine and by parents in over 150 countries. Following the sale of InternetSafety.com, Aaron shepherded the product within McAfee as a Director of Engineering. Equal parts right and left-brain, Aaron likes to champion game-changing ideas that solve real life problems. When Aaron cranks up the Big Green Egg his BBQ Ribs are always a hit. Most recently he’s turned his attention to the pursuit of turning the simplest of ingredients into the perfect Neapolitan pizza.
