Jennifer was one of the best advertising managers I worked with during my time as managing editor of the Main Line Times and News of Delaware County. More importantly, she was one of the nicest and truly thoughtful persons I worked with and I was blessed for the time we worked together at the News of Delaware County.

My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. She loved the Lord and was not ashamed of showing her faith. May you rest in peace dear friend.

My deepest prayers are with you all at the loss of a beautiful wife, mother, grand-mother, sister-in-Christ....the list of her titles is endless. Jennifer's walk with the Lord was truly shown in her every day life and to all those she met. She loved her Lord and had no problem sharing her faith and her love for Him. Jennifer was like the sister I never had. We laughed together, cried together, confided in each other, talked on the phone for hours, even spent a weekend cleaning out a house for her to make Maine her new home. PA lost a great lady when she moved away and Maine truly gained one. My heart is so saddened at the loss of this dear sister-in-Christ and if ever someone deserved to hear the words from our Lord - "Well done my good and faithful servant" it would be Jennifer. Rest in peace my friend your pain is now gone. You are now home in our Father's house where there is a special room just for you. Prayers, love and hugs to all of you.
