I haven't seen Jennifer since high school, but we shared a love for singing, fun times in the Singing Christmas Tree, and both our first and middle names. I'll always remember her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Jennifer was the first grandchild of my parents, my brothers firstborn. Jenn made me an Aunt for the first time. To my family: Michael & William, Tony & Sherry, Sarah, Jason & Candace, and extended family… the loss we all feel will forever change our lives. My heart not only grieves for my loss, but it grieves for each of her close family members that are all filled with sorrow. Our world is forever changed because Jennifer left such an impact on everyone she met. She will be deeply missed. Jenn left a lasting impression so she will always be remembered. There will be things that trigger tears and things that bring laughter…things that you never expected …. But they will gently remind us of all the wonderful details that made life with Jennifer such a precious gift. Words are difficult to find to express the sorrow we all feel…and my heart is broken not only for the loss of Jennifer in my life…but my heart is broken for the loss that will forever effect those most near and dear to her heart. May God hold us close to His heart so we can feel his love and comfort and peace. Praying that Gods grace and mercy will help us each day and for a special comfort to be with her immediate family, husband and child. We love you all. Aunt Sandra and Uncle Ray Henry.

Jennifer was a wonderful friend - educated, fun-loving, entertaining, full of witty ideas. I will miss her sorely and wish her family lots of strength to get through this terrible time.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Beautiful Jenn, you were gone too soon. You were one of the kindest souls & most generous hearts. Your love of the UK 🇬🇧 & knowledge of its history was top of the class & better than most Brits! I will never forget you knitting me the most gorgeous scarf & giving it to me for those “cold English winters”. I felt so cared for & thought of. I wear it often but will now wear it proudly in your memory. Rest in peace lovely Jennifer & to Mr. Tony, Mrs. Sherry, Sarah, Jason & all of the family, I send you all my love & prayers & only wish I could be there to support you in this dark time of grief. Love, Brittany xx

Michael, William, Sherry, Tony, Sarah and Family Our hearts are broken and there are no words to describe loosing Jenn. So many memories of going to the beach, playing in the pool and just having fun with Jenn running around with long hair and her cute little dresses and she was always laughing. She was always one of a kind and loved everyone. She was always Sherry's mini me. So much like her Mom in every way. Such a love for life and it was always obvious. She was beautiful and loved by everyone. We love you Guy's so much and we are praying that God will wrap his arms around you all during this most difficult time. Love, Marie and Howard

I got you Jenn. I’m sure the dinner you’ve prepared for tonight has so many smiling faces around it–our three babies, nanny and papa, grandmother, great nanny and papa, and anyone else wanting a good time. I can see your crown shining from here.
