I worked with Jennifer for several years here at Trinity Forge. She was such a kind and fun person to be with. We both had pugs and we would love to get together and talk about all the crazy things our pugs would do.
I will miss her. She was a classy lady and no matter how hard things became for her she always had a smile to share with everyone.

I taught Jennifer at Cleburne High School & she ranks high among my all time favorite students because she was fun to have in class. Her personality made teaching a pleasure. One time I was having an appraisal by EJ Barnes. Jennifer was not in this particular class, but passed by in in the hall & opened the door. Not seeing Mr. Barnes, yelled “hello, Mrs. Cook”. I was required to discipline her, which she graciously received. We laughed together after the episode. I loved her, she was very special!
