I was deeply shocked and saddened to learn of Jayne's passing. I knew her through the Mountain Lakes YMCA where she started the cardiac rehab program. Jayne reflected the best of her profession -- smart, attentive to patient needs and most of all encouraging. But well beyond that, she had a great sense of humor (she gave as good as she got from her occasionally rambunctious 'patients') and was a bright light to all in the program who were blessed with her leadership and caring. She created a climate of friendship and family that made us look forward to our times with her, not only at the Y but also at luncheons and holiday parties. I will never forget her. May the memory of her life and her goodness sustain all who mourn this terrible loss.
