About Us

meet the founder

Hello, I'm Jenny Rostkowski, the heart behind JKM Soy Candles. With over 15 years of candle-making expertise, my passion lies in crafting items that resonate with your senses.

In 2008, as a new mom, I founded JKM Soy Candles in a cozy one-bedroom apartment, alongside my husband, Kris, and our firstborn, Maddie – thus, "JKM." Our family has since expanded to five with the arrival of Zoe in 2009 and Rory in 2015.

While my days are often filled with pouring candles, showcasing at events, and crafting new collections, I also find joy in reading, going to concerts, and traveling. Yet, above all, my heart finds solace in the precious moments spent with my incredible family, whose unwavering support ignites my passion and propels me forward in every endeavor.
