Eddie Jennings received his Bachelor of Arts in Music in 1981 from Jacksonville State University (in Jacksonville, Alabama USA). At JSU, he studied applied saxophone with Dr. Ronald Attinger. Dr. Attinger instilled in him the beauty to be found in classical saxophone performance. At JSU he became an avid arranger for saxophone ensembles, from trios up to large saxophone choirs. He arranged much of the music performed by the university saxophone choir while at JSU.
Concurrently with his music degree, he received a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (with a minor in Computer Science) at Jacksonville State University and in 1983 received a Master of Arts in Mathematics from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
