Deputy Chief resigns

A St. Joseph County employee who took charge of the register of deeds office at a critical time in 2010 left her job last week.
Jennifer Wall, 44, said she turned in her two-week notice Aug. 3, a day after Lindsay Oswald was elected to a four-year term as county clerk and register of deeds.
She said her decision was based on “not seeing eye-to-eye with Lindsay.”
Wall, who joined the office in 2000 as a temporary part-time employee, was appointed deputy chief in 2004. She was sworn in at the end of 2010 as register of deeds after her predecessor, Cynthia Jarrett, was charged with embezzlement.
A Mendon resident, Wall remained in that capacity until the position was merged with the county clerk’s office in 2012. Her job title reverted to deputy chief after that, a position for which she was making about $43,000 a year.
Oswald said she accepted Wall’s resignation Wednesday and wishes her luck in future endeavors.
