The Gunners ran out 2-0 winners over Swansea in their last Premier League fixture, with Nacho Monreal and Gervinho scoring the goals which earned Arsene Wenger's men a vital three points on Saturday.
With the win, Arsenal moved to just four points behind fourth placed Tottenham Hotspur, who surprisingly lost 1-0 to Fulham on Sunday.
Jenkinson acknowledged how important it was for his side to have picked up all three points against a tricky Swansea side and revealed his admiration for Monreal, who joined the Gunners during the recent January transfer window.
"It's a huge win," Jenkinson was quoted as saying by the official Arsenal website.
"We were buzzing in the changing room because this is a hard place to come to and get a win. I'm delighted and so are the boys, and so we should be. We've come here and won 2-0.
"I'm a big fan of Monreal. It was really important he got our first goal because we needed that.
"Then it was about keeping it tight at the back and Gervinho went and got the second one. It turned out fantastically in the end.
"It's not easy at Swansea. They're a good team. They're good on the ball. They can pass it and we're over the moon with the win. It was thoroughly deserved.
"I think in patches we played really good football, especially towards the end. It was the sort of game where you have to dig in deep and show a lot of fight. We did that so I'm delighted."
Jenkinson also urged his side to keep their focus on finishing in the top four this season.
"We just need to concentrate on ourselves," Jenkinson added.
"Other teams are going to drop points. We want to win every game and we're capable of doing that.
"Our form hasn't been bad. It can be better of course.
"From now it's just about now until the end of the season.
"That's going to be what makes or breaks us so it's almost like a little season in itself.
"In my eyes, we've started it really well [at Swansea] and we just need to get on a good run and keep it going. If we do that, we'll end up where we need to be."
