You were an angel on earth Jenna. I feel so blessed to have played ball with you, been your locker neighbor, and then later in life stumble back into each others lives. Every interaction I ever had with you, whether we were 12 or 32, felt meaningful and purposeful bc you made it feel that way. I'm sad for everyone who must now get used to not having those interactions and for all those who never had a chance to... you were such a light in the lives of everyone who knew you. Your light will remain in our hearts sweet Jenna <3

I had the pleasure of knowing Jenna in high school as we played softball together. My heart breaks to hear of her passing. She was a kind, down to earth woman with such a beautiful smile. My heart felt condolences to her family and friends.

Oh, my sweet, Jenna! You were kind, beautiful, and an amazing friend. Even though our paths lead us in different directions, you were one of my greatest friends. I will cherish all our moments together from school days, sports, and all our beer-drinking shenanigans (we had a blast!). You were loved by all and will be missed, girl. Rest in peace, my sweet, sweet friend. Thinking and praying for you all.

A butterfly lands beside us and for a brief moment its beauty belongs to the world. Then it flies again and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel lucky to have seen it. Rest Easy Jenna, I'll never forget your smile, fun personality and your contagious laugh.
