    Jennifer was my mentor and friend at SCHS since 2008. She was so friendly and very caring; she taught the students cooking and job skills. Her report with the students was awesome; she listened and helped them in many ways. I remember her laugh, smile, and love of frogs! Condolences and prayers for her family. She was a great lady and mentor.

    Abby, Zack and family: there are no words that I can say that will ease the pain you have at the loss of Jennifer! I remember her from Banks County High and thru the years of baseball and have run into at various times thru the years. The last time (at Walmart of course) I saw her she was telling me about her sweet boys and their wives and those two precious grandbabies! And of course there has never been any doubt in the 45+ years I’ve known her and Abigail how close they have always been! Please know that you have been and will continue to be in our prayers as we ask God to give comfort, peace, and strength to each of you! Hugs and love to each of you!
