GUARD, Jennifer Lee, 39, passed away unexpectedly November 2, 2019. She was born September 24, 1980 in Richmond, Virginia to Brenda Driskill. She was married to her childhood crush and the love of her life, Jason Christopher Guard. Jennifer had a love for dragonflies. She had an immense passion for animals. She loved all things pink. She loved wolves. She loved Halloween, and scary movies. She loved decorating and celebrating it more after her youngest son was born on Halloween. Her children were her life. She always greeted everyone with a huge smile and a big hug. She loved big and made you feel loved. She was silly, sarcastic, smart, and stubborn. Her smile lit up a room. She will be immensely missed by all that knew and loved her. Jennifer is survived by her faithfully devoted Husband, Jason; her Children, Austin, Hunter, Jason Jr, and Kaylee; her Mother and Step Father (who she lovingly called "Dad"), Brenda and Ted Driskill; her Grandmothers Barbara Moore (Nannie), Patricia Brown (paternal), and Joan P.
