Jenn Kikel-Lynn


Jenn has a passion for philanthropy and strives to incorporate it in both her personal and professional life. She has created two nonprofits, The FMK Foundation/Yellow for Life, which educates and raises awareness for suicide prevention and mental illness, and The Give Back Brokerage Charitable Foundation in conjunction with K Real Estate - “The Give Back Brokerage,” which holds funds from real estate sales for charitable donations.  In addition to creating these nonprofits, Jenn developed a community on LinkedIn called, “Give Back & Connect” which has almost 9,000 members and continues to grow daily. This networking group allows non-profits and businesses to connect through monthly in-person trainings, zoom calls, podcast opportunities, and more.


Jenn is also the owner and principal broker of the philanthropy based real estate brokerage K Real Estate –“The Give Back Brokerage.” She has received numerous awards for her success in real estate, including being named as one of the Top 1% of Realtors in the State of Utah for 7 years and counting. She is also a member of several local and national committees and has been published in several state magazines.


Jenn co-founded the FMK Foundation along with her brother, Jon, in July 2014. The Foundation was created in memory of their parents, Frank and Marlene Kikel, both of whom lost their lives to suicide. Jenn and Jon have a joint purpose in life to create a legacy to honor their parents by raising awareness for both mental illness and suicide prevention.
