Jacquelyn Quinones joined the Spectrum News team in September 2021 as a multimedia journalist.

Originally from San Jose, also known as Silicon Valley, Jacquelyn moved to Middletown where she currently reports from. She loves the scenery around New York and has even taken the train from Beacon just to ride along the Hudson River.

Jacquelyn takes pride in reporting local news, and hopes her stories are able to positively impact the communities that have given her so much. She enjoys empowering youth, and can often be found volunteering and participating in local events.

A proud first generation Mexican-American, Jacquelyn enjoys opportunities to go salsa dancing and eat Latin food. Along with the good local Latin restaurants, she also loves the rich history of the region. She also likes the tall trees and greenery in her area, while still being just a quick trip into New York City.
