Your Teitel Apartments Staff

Jennifer Staniszweski Prentis Teitel Apartments

Jennifer Staniszewski
Oak Park Campus Administrator


Dajuan Avery
Assistant Administrator


I have more than 22 years of experience working at Jewish Senior Life. During my time working in the Teitel Building I received three promotions from Housekeeper to Maintenance Technician to Building Supervisor, and then finally into my current position as Assistant Administrator. I also worked 4 years as a member of the agency’s kitchen staff back in the early 90s, which was my first job while in high school. I enjoy listening to smooth jazz vinyl on my record player and I am a supportive sports fan of the Detroit Tigers, Pistons, Lions and Red Wings. Here at Teitel we focus heavily on customer service and providing a safe, healthy and beautiful environment for our residents to call home.

Larissa Kleschchik
Resident Service Coordinator


I have been working at JSL as a Resident Service Coordinator for almost 30 years. I assist residents in a socially responsible manner consistent with the values, ethical principles and standards of the profession.  We strive to help our residents maintain their independence in a dignified manner for as long as possible in an independent setting.  We do this by introducing our clients and their families to resources for services that may help them in their daily living. It is my mission to improve, maintain and enhance the quality of life of our residents.

Valentina Shub Prentis Teitel Apartments

Valentina Shub
Oak Park Campus Director of Leasing


As Oak Park Campus Director of Leasing, I am often the first point of contact for prospective tenants and their families. I conduct apartment tours, answer questions, process and verify applications and coordinate move-ins and move-outs. I joined Teitel in 2004 and I am very proud of our JSL community. It is my goal to always provide a warm and informative welcome to residents and families, as well as to make sure the transition to becoming a Teitel resident goes smoothly. I love playing a part in helping our residents have comfortable homes in an enriching social environment. Additionally, I am a native Russian speaker, which allows me to assist in communicating with our Russian-speaking residents. In my free time I like to read, travel, photograph nature and people and solve Sudoku and KenKen puzzles.
