Her smile was very contagious. Jenna was a great person and I would so enjoy it when she would slip into my lab by thos bathrooms at St. Eds. I listened to her silliness and we would laugh at what ever. She will be missed yet somehow her smile, her pretty face and bubbly personality will be remembered forever. Go Jenna and be that angel who will watch over all of us.
Your family are in my prayers. Jenna was a beautiful girl.

I have been a coworker of Jenna's for 3 years and I know that all of 3 South as well as myself will miss her greatly. She was a great young woman and all the patients loved her. I am so sorry for your loss and may you all stay strong in this time of sadness.
To Jenna’s family:
We are sorry to hear of your loss of a daughter and sister at this time. We extend to you our prayers and hope that you will find comfort in your heart of all the great times that you experience with her. Peace of the Lord be with you all at this difficult time.
I was so very saddened to read about Jenna's passing. She was a former student of mine at St. Ed's (96-97)and a sweet, smart and beautiful girl. She had also cared for my mom at St. Anthony's a while back. Please know that I am praying for you and your family at this very difficult time!
I know there are not any words in the world that could possibly help at this time but know I care as do many others. Sending heartfelt sympathy and prayers.
I am so sorry to hear the loss of your beautiful daughter. She was a wonderful person who enjoyed her life and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Your family is in my prayers! Jenna was a beautiful girl and I remember the days at St. Edward's when the girls played basketball!
We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your beautiful daughter Jenna!! She sure had a contagious smile just like her parents!... Our prayers and thoughts are with you at this sad time! Hang on to her wonderful memory!
