There's little information about "Jennifer Juniors" on the Web, except
as a by-blow of Zapruder's witnessing of that moment in history in
November 22, 1963.  Here's what I was able to glean over a fairly
exhaustive two-hour search.  Although there's dozens of sites
mentioning Zapruder's ownership of "Jennifer Juniors", I haven't cited
duplicate information.

Abraham Zapruder was born in Russia on May 15, 1905. He emigrated to
the U.S. in 1920 where he worked for a dress manufacturer in New York.
He moved to Dallas in 1941 and worked at Nardis, a local clothing
manufacturer. A Freemason, Zapruder was a Member of Temple Emanu-El
Congregation.  He died August 30, 1970 of stomach cancer.

Zapruder, of course, is best remembered today for his amateur 8mm file
of the John F. Kennedy assasination. The camera, by the way, was
purchased from from Peacock Jewelry Company, also on Elm Street.

In 1949, Zapruder started his own company which he called "Jennifer
Juniors". The company occupied floors five and six of the Dal-Tex
Building at 501 Elm which, by 1963, was across the street from the
Texas School Book Depository. The Dal-Tex building was built in 1902,
originally for the John Deere Plow Company. 

As well as Zapruder, employees of Jennifer Juniors in 1963 included
Irwin [sometimes cited as "Erwin", but probably a misspelling)
Schwartz, partner; Marilyn Sitzman, receptionist; Beatrice Hester,
payroll clerk; and Lillian Rogers, secretary.

Although I can't verify that it's from Zapruder's company, a labeled
"Jennifer Juniors" dress is for sale at this site...
