Jenn was born in Lewiston on January 25, 1978 to Ronald and Judith Rose. A lifelong resident of Sabattus, Jenn was educated in Sabattus area schools. She graduated from Oak Hill High School in 1996. Jenn married Joe Pare, son of Bert and Louise Pare, on April 9, 2009. They welcomed their daughter Gwen to the world in January of 2012. Jenn had previously been employed at Twin City Dental Lab and most recently at Central Maine Medical Center. Jenn was a huge animal lover as well as an extremely creative person who enjoyed crafting. She had a special talent of baking specialty cakes for family, friends and various functions.

The thin I will remember the most about my cousin is her infectious smile. Never did see her with anything else. She made you smile when you weren't smiling. She is a beautiful soul. The love of her family was so strong it was amazing. I will always have her in my heart and prayers. Love you cousin...

Jenn was such a beautiful, funny, smart woman- she is gonna be so very missed by her family and friends. One of my favorite memories of her was sadly our nana’s passing. We all got together to listen to a local band , shared some funny memories of our nana ( because she was such a hot ticket)and made some new ones with each other. The photo has a halloween prop that we decided would join our group that night. Love you my sweet cousin, see you again someday.

To say my sister Jenn was a wonderful person would be an understatement. She had the very biggest heart of anyone I know,if Jenn cared about you then you knew it,felt it.Always generous with her love and her life. She had the best smile and laugh. I loved giggling over stories from when we were little or our shared loved of bad puns. Quick with a funny quote from Friends or a line from Greys. She was stubborn as heck too. Don't try to tell her that she shouldn't try something...shes happy to prove you wrong. But no matter how great of a daughter or sister or aunt or friend she was a million times more amazing as gwen's mother,giving her all the love patience guidance and silliness she had to give. I so admire her as a mom. Anyone who knew her could see that Gwen was the light of her life and the best thing she ever did. I will strive every day to be a better person-a person like my Jenn. I will love you miss you and think of you every day-always.
Love you little sister,

I was so lucky to have you as my sister. You are the best person and we are all better for knowing you. You will be remembered for your kind, gentle nature, your generous and loving heart, your smile and your sense of humor. I will forever admire your strength and courage. I'll miss our long talks, your laughter and hugs. I will miss you, my beautiful sister. I love you, Jenn.

Jenn had asked me to take a road trip with her, knowing that my family is from Fall River Massachusetts, she asked if I could drive. We spent time chatting about things we did growing up, our joys, our sorrows, episodes of the show ‘Friends’ and my favorite: singing at the top of our lungs.
To this day when I hear ‘Waterfalls’ by TLC, it makes me think of her and our car ride. I have many more but that’s my favorite.
I love you Jenn.

She had an amazing smile & laugh! I knew her when she was Jenn Rose through my cousin Tracy and we joked she was becoming the other Jenn Pare. Every appointment I went to they’d say :” oh there’s two of you or weren’t you just here ? “and It was great that I knew her personally. I am so sorry for your loss. She is gone way too soon. May the memories and love you shared keep her close at heart. My deepest sympathies- the other Jenn Paré
