Jenna Rae Quesnel, lovingly referred to as “J” by her family, was born on September 16, 1985. She passed away in September at the age of 35 in Jefferson Parish. The cause of her death at this time is undetermined and is being investigated. Jenna is now pain free and at peace. She is at place where we are all on a journey to reach.

She always had a kind word to say. Her smile lit up a room and everyone around her. She greeted her family and close friends with a hug and with the words “I love you” each time she met with them. Jenna will always be remembered for her competitiveness growing up when she twirled, played soccer, volleyball, basketball, danced, and cheered both competitively and for high school. She graduated from Sulphur High in 2003 and attended ULL and McNeese.

Her aunts and uncles include Dennis and Carla Ortego of Lafayette, Britton and Leah Bruce of Lafayette, and Jody and Lisa Frey of Sulphur. She is also survived by her cousins Dustin Ortego, Angela Diesi, Ethan Bruce, all of Lafayette, and Cathryn Keeley and Whitney Frey of Sulphur.

I am saddened to hear about Jenna’s passing. I went to elementary and part of middle school with Jenna, and I always remembered her as bubbly, friendly, and good at almost everything she went for. She was a fun childhood friend who rarely met a stranger. Her family and friends will be in my thoughts and prayers during this time.

Her smile would light the darkest of rooms as if the love in her would illuminate thro her smile! a laugh that would move any soul who heard it for miles! Her presence was always mighty for deep within she possessed the secrets of happiness. Even tho she didnt know it just yet. Never the less that never kept it from spill out and infecting everyone and everything n which she connected! Once woven into her fabric of love and light she would protect u with all of her might!! She wouldnt leave a needy souls side even if she had ro stand there all night! Now we morn our angel is gone. Ripped from us like a thief n the night but not without her mighty fight!! But do not fear wipe away all ur lonely and sad tears and remember our angels better off up there!! no more pain no more sorrow no more shame only happiness and the feeling of warm summers rain as she sips from her glass relaxing and basking n the never ending end love and grace of our great master as she await us in the ever after.....
In Loving Memory!!!

We love u girl!!! my prayers r with u and urs!
