Jolene was always there to help people through their problems and that was no different with our friendship. Back in 2016 I was moving overseas and was terrified to do so. Jolene spent SO. MANY. HOURS. listening to me cry, giving me advice, looking up international healthcare information, and so much more. She always knew what to say or what to do for me - even when she was struggling herself. Jo, you’ll always be the sassy blonde girl I met @ the NEX! I love you and will miss you always!

All my memories of Jo are special, but remembering your 3rd and fourth years are my favorite, you were such a good big sister to Toby. You loved holding him and helping to feed him, it was very special. In the picture attached you we holding the kitty like I was always holding Toby. My second favorite was you and Rex, your love of animals started with Rex, he kept you close all the time. I love you Jo and I hope you and Rex are having fun again.

JOLENE WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PERSON INSIDE AND OUT. SHE REACHED OUT TO ME TWO DAYS BEFORE HER PASSING AS I HAD NOT HEARD FROM HER IN A WHILE. I WILL MISS HER SO MUCH, OUR PEP TALKS, HER LAUGHTER, AND MOST OF ALL HER BEAUTIFUL SMILE. I SEND MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCES TO HER DAUGHTERS AND HER FAMILY, AS I AM PRAYING THAT GOD GIVES YOU ALL GREAT COMFORT AND STRENGTH DURING SUCH A SAD AND DIFFICULT TIME. JOLENE WILL ALWAYS BE WITH US IN SPIRIT.

I don't even know where to start with favorite memories, but I can say that she was and always will be the best part of my life. I've been that little sister that has only wanted to grow up to be just like my big sister, following her around with her friends♥ but she was the big sister that never let me feel alone, and always let me tag along 💗she was my idol, my best friend, my person. 😓I know i will never forget her face...because i see her in certain features when I look in a mirror🥺 i still can't believe she is gone
