Cousin Jody, You were the best! Not only as a cousin but also as a good friend. We were privileged to have known you well for almost your whole life. You were intelligent, funny, involved and most importantly a great family member. You have always meant a lot to us and we will always treasure your friendship.
Rest in peace good friend!

Jody was a wonderful boss, mentor and friend. She taught me so much ad helped me to become the leader I am today. Her passion for helping foster economic growth and self sufficiency cannot be matched. She will be truly missed.

Jody was a mother to all of us in this industry. She gave birth to the most important program in this industry. She cultivated 200 organizations across the country to lend hundreds of millions of dollars to over 50,000 entrepreneurs. She was a goddess in this field and was magical in her candor, loving in her guidance, and relentless in her pursuit of micro credit for all. I was privileged to know her since 1998, and I miss her dearly. To her family, thank you for sharing Jody with all of us. Roberto Barragan

Like many others in the microenterprise field, I first met Jody at the start of the SBA Microloan Program, and I feel lucky to have spent as many years as I did in her force field. She was smart, funny and deeply commited to making the program work. She was a great ally to all of us. Her wisdom, advice and humor carried us through some challenging moments and gave us a lot to celebrate. She will be missed by many.

Jody was always an inspiration to me. Unfailingly upbeat, friendly to all, funny, diligent in her work and determined to live life to the fullest despite her illness.

Jody was one of the best bunco babes ever! :-)) She always had a smile on her face and love in her heart! Her advice was priceless. I will miss her dearly! My thoughts and prayers go out to her family at this time.

I have had the joy of working with Jody since she began the SBA Micro-enterprise Program. She made participation in the program a special experience, as she cared for her groups and for the meaning of their work in communities. She was wonderfully frank and someone who you feel fortunate to have encountered in life's journey.

I remember many fun times with Jody in Bayonne and those continued on in our youth as our families moved from place to place. She had a wonderful laugh and a smile that would light up a room. Though we lost touch over the last few years our mother's kept us appraised of all that went on in her life. I am so happy that she "got behind the wheel" and drove all the way to Texas to spend time with us. She obviously had an abundance of love that she wanted to spread around the country before her passing. She touched us all.
