I was a classmate and good friend of Jills at Lincoln and Roosevelt High. Jill was an awesome friend back in the day, she would always lend an ear when a friend needed to talk! I just heard about her passing about 30 minutes ago. I did not know her in adulthood, but if she was anything like when she was in school, she will be deeply missed! My condolences to Dennis, their children and grandchildren as well as the Burnham family. RIP Jill, thank you for being a friend!

I am so sad to have heard Jill passed. For Dennis and family, and the Burnham's, my deepest sympathy. Childhood wouldn't have been the same without Jill, a dear and sweet friend.
