Jennifer was many things to many people, and everyone loved her. She had amazing personality. She was patient and kind, sassy and playful, always making jokes and flirting with her doctors.

Jennifer was the undisputed #1 grandchildren on all sides. She loved her family and was always making sure they were doing alright. She was inquisitive, understanding and accepting.
