I was born in Brockport, NY. Jennifer Heise, daughter of David Heise.

The other David Heise, resident in Irondequoit NY, a second cousin, also
had a daughter and named her Jennifer.

Outside NY state, Heise is a very uncommon surname-- the two possible
German roots would be written Heisey or Heis outside of the Canal region.
(In fact, when we moved to Pennsylvania Deustch country, people would
always write it down Heisey. And pronouce it Heisey.)
