Jodi Lynn Kurtzman

June 9, 1970May 15, 2020

Jodi Lynn Kurtzman passed away peacefully on May 15, just a month before her 50th birthday.

Jodi is survived by her parents, Marshall and Elene Kurtzman of Jackson NJ, and by sisters Sharon Halloran and Ronna Platt of Texas. Also, Aunt Rochelle Feinberg and Uncle Howard Moretsky and nephews David Halloran, Andy Halloran, Aaron Platt and niece Sarah Platt and many cousins.

Jodi is remembered by her exuberant love of life, expressed in her singing, dancing and music making. For the past 20 years, while living happily at Bancroft in Marlton and Voorhees, what she loved most was to sing in the Joyful Noise choral group. Her cheerful personality brightened every performance, whether it be at rehearsals, or at concerts performed around NJ and at several Universities such as Harvard, Yale, Lehigh, and Temple.

Jodi fought many obstacles but was driven, loved, and supported in everything she ever wanted to do or be. In New Jersey Special Olympics, Jodi was a gold medal winner, participating in track and field, softball, bowling, and tennis. She was her own best cheerleader. Jodi will be forever missed, but her bright spirit, loving heart and willfulness will remain with us forever.

Marshall, Elene, and family,

Jodi was very special and very sweet. I remember meeting her, I believe when Rochelle and I shared our B'not Mitzvah. May her memory be for a blessing.

Dear Elene and Marshall,
We are so sorry to hear of Jodi’s passing. These last months have been so difficult but you both showed so much strength.
I remember meeting Jodi. She had so much enthusiasm, I’m sorry I never got to hear her sing. I know she loved that. I also remember you telling me of your girls’ trip up LasVegas. A great memory. Just know you gave her the best life.
Our Deepest Sympathy,
Tom, Maxine and Lauren.
