Had the privilege of working with Jennifer at Mayo Clinic. She was a kind and dedicated nurse who was respected and liked by her co-workers and loved by all her patients. My sympathies to her family who I know she adored.

I first met Jennifer through her Dad, John. I had done John and Ely's taxes for years and John felt like Jennifer needed some help because of her Avon business. She remained a client for years, long after she began her nursing career. Jennifer was a strong young lady who worked hard at everything she did. I was proud of her efforts and know John would have expressed his pride if we could hear his voice. To her Mom, to John and Danielle and her grandchildren, and Barbara and Tony, my sincere condolences. May the Peace of God, that passes all understanding, give each of you comfort and rest. With love and sincerity. Jim and Sue Sinn

Jennifer was a great neighbor who became a wonderful friend for over 10 years. We spent many an hour poolside having cocktails and talking sometimes about nothing much and other times in depth about our lives. We talked a lot about her beloved grandchildren. She loved them so much. Recently I shared a picture of my newest and she said"he's almost as cute as mine". She was always so sweet to our granddaughter Ava and seemed to have an endless supply of red licorice for her. She was so dedicated to her mother and always tried to make sure she was included in the Mooring's festivities, especially if oysters we're involved. She loved to read for hours poolside. She was just such a great friend who will be missed by so many. RIP my friend, I know you're watching down on us with your daddy, who even though I never met him, I know you adored. Til we meet again. Love ya.

Jennifer was a great daughter, mother, grandmother, and friend. I know she is with her dad, and they are holding each other tightly. Myself and many others will miss her greatly. I’m fortunate to have known Jennifer, and I’m left with many wonderful memories. The world was a better place with her in it. 🌹

I have sweet memories of Jennifer from when she was in high school. Her mom and I taught together at Terry Parker Baptist Preschool and the 4 teachers and families often got together. We always had so much fun together. What a great family. About a year or so ago we ran into Jennifer and Elly at lunch and It was a great time talking about old times. Much love and many prayers to Jennifer's family.
Donna and Ned Hastings.
