Lady "J" is what she allowed me to call her. I've had the pleasure of working with Jeannise at Embry-Riddle for many, many years and she will be truly missed. I pray peace, comfort and precious memories for her family and friends. The bible says, "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord." She is at rest.

Jeannise has been such a fountain of knowledge at Embry-Riddle since I arrived. She was always so helpful and on top of everything. I suspect she leaves a void for many here. Sincere condolences to her precious family and loved ones.

I had the pleasure of working with Jeannise throughout the past 9 years as my team supported the software applications for the Safety office. She was always nice (and funny), even when she was escalating an issue or frustration. Always a team player, she has been greatly missed and I am sad to hear of her passing. Condolences to her family and I hope they take peace knowing the impact she had on those around her.

I had the pleasure of working with Jeannise for many years at ERAU. She was always ready to help with anything - even if it wasn't really her responsibility. She introduced me to peanut butter M&Ms and always had a treat for me when I came to her office. She was very caring and will be truly missed!

My sincere condolences to all of Jeannise's family and loved ones.

I had the privilege of working with Jeannine for the past 5 years - my first 5 with ERAU. She quickly became more than a colleague; she was a friend. No matter how busy she was she would always take time to make sure things were well with you. She will be missed and remembered for many years to come. My deepest condolences to her family.

Jeannise was always a great team player. She strived for excellence and had impeccable customer service. She would go out of her way to greet you and make you feel right at home. She always wanted to do what was best for the students and the university while putting aside any impacts those actions may have on her. She will be truly missed at Embry-Riddle.
