I am still struggling to absorb this, as I'm sure are so many people. Jenny was truly a special woman, a dear friend who listened so warmly to you when you spilled your soul. And she was such a loving mother; whom was taken from her boys far too soon. I offer all my love and hope to those beautiful boys for peace and light in coping with this breathtaking loss. And also to her mother and boyfriend and all those who were close as well. My heart is with you all. Jenny, dear girl, rest in peace. Until we meet again..

I am so sorry to hear of Jenny's passing. I was a friend of hers in middle school and high school in Mundelein. We are were all band, choir, and theater kids. I'll always remember Jenny's laugh and smile - she could brighten a room like no one else could. I'm glad we got to re-connect at the reunion a few years ago. I was very saddened to hear of her passing; she left us far too soon. Prayers for her and her family - may she be at rest at last in the loving arms of our Lord.

Dear Mary Ann,
Words alone cannot express my shock and heartache when I learned of Jenny's passing.
I still fondly remember her as a pretty little girl at Betty Daly's Dancing School and Marilee's high school buddy.
May God grant you the grace and strength to carry you through these most difficult times.
My heartfelt prayers are with you and the boys.

Words can't express how sad I feel for Jenny's children, JP, family and closest friends. No words can take away the pain that you all feel right now during this most difficult time but hopefully those wounds will slowly begin to heal. Over time, when someone mentions her name or tells a story about her, hopefully you will be able to smile or laugh and think about what a true celebration her life was and recall how important she was to so many. I'm sure that this is the way she would have wanted it. She was a nice friend, schoolmate and old HS choir partner. Rest in peace Jenny!

Dear John and Mary Anne. This is one of the worst club anyone can belong to. Dave and Emily I am so sorry. You will be in my prayers. This tragedy you will never ever get over. But somehow learn to with it. And with GOD"S HELP.

Jennifer my friend, I will miss you dearly. I have not known you for a very long time but long enough to know what a great and generous soul you were. This generosity will continue on in honor of you. You have made a positive strong impression in my life and I will remember you always. I told my parents to be on the look out for you. Love you Jen!
