I have many sweet memories of Jennifer from the time she worked with us at Garden Montessori School. She was always so kind and compassionate and loving with our students. I am so sorry to hear of this loss.

Being in high school band with her for two years, I always admired her cheeriness even when things were not going well during practices. Condolences to her parents, her older brother Val, and her younger sister Karen on their loss.

Always a ray of sunshine. I remember the first time we met, during my UT days, sledding and playing in the snow during a University Snow day. Jennifer never met a stranger. RIP my dear friend. Love forever.
