Hawaii Brand Ambassador for The Perfect Purée

Catering Director & Mixologist at Luibueno’s Mexican & Latin Cuisine, Haleiwa Town, Oahu

Jenn Marr works as a bartender and manager at Luibueno’s, a popular Mexican & Latin restaurant in Haleiwa Town on Oahu’s famed North Shore, where she also lives.

Jenn is a 30-year veteran of Hawaii’s food & beverage industry, having worked in restaurants since her teens. She earned acclaim during her nine years as a bartender at Honolulu’s landmark Indigo as well as the North Shore’s legendary Sugar Bar and other well-known establishments.

In 2012, Jenn graduated from the University of Hawaii’s Culinary School of the Pacific with a double major in culinary and pastry.

At Luibueno’s, Jenn has the freedom to design creative, high-end custom food and beverage menus and chef services for private events.

Jenn’s passion for high-quality, fresh and responsibly-sourced products is met by The Perfect Purée. She considers The Perfect Purée essential to many applications in the bar and the kitchen, both at work and at home.

With her experience and her warm, outgoing personality, Jenn enjoys promoting the amazing potential of The Perfect Purée in all aspects of the food and beverage industry.

Jenn was born in Boston but spent part of her childhood in Hawaii and moved there permanently when she was 16. She considers Hawaii the perfect place to maintain a rewarding career and an active ocean lifestyle.

A former professional body boarder, Jenn competed on the world tour and worked on the sets of “Baywatch” and “Blue Crush,” among other movies and television shows.

Jenn’s love of island life and the Aloha spirit infuses everything she does, including her reinvention of a classic island cocktail in Don Q’s Hawaii Pina Colada Challenge. Jenn’s winning entry, the “Thaidal Wave,” earned her a trip in early 2016 to Don Q’s Seralles Distillery in Puerto Rico.

Jenn also competed in the American Culinary Federation’s regional competition in Hawaii. She received silver medals in both the hot food and showpiece categories, earning the second highest total points and proving her crossover knowledge of both the front and back of the house.
