I am so sorry to hear Jen has passed. She was a marvelous woman with a beautiful heart. I will forever see her holding a kitten and basking in purrs. The world is a poorer place without her in it, but the heavens are surely enjoying her lovely soul. I wish you, who are her family, healing and memories that lift your hearts. She will be missed for a very long time.

Jennifer worked for me for several years. She was one of the kindest and caring persons I have ever known. Even when she was fighting her own pain, her focus was always on others. She was courageous. A wonderful person.

We were soulmates since we were 17 and 18 and sat side-by-side at Katharine Gibbs. Those that know us knew we were sisters from different parents. I am at peace because she is at peace. She will be the brightest star in the sky.

I met Jennifer and Bob through Cindi Luke. Jen was ALWAYS smiling! No matter what, Jen could make a room lightup with her beautiful smile. Always concerned how the other person felt, she would NEVER complain about herself. She loved life and being with all her friends laughing and sharing stories. I'll always treasure the fun week we all had in Key West and the talks we all shared! Jen you are finally at peace and able to rest. I hope you are dancing all around heaven, smiling your beautiful happy face off! We all love you! We'll love you forever until we all meet up again and join you in the dance! Love, June

I met Jen, on her fist day at Masconomet HS, We clicked right away. I was the oldest of 6 children, and to say the least, my home could be crazy! Jen decided that it was her goal to teach me everything she knew about life, that I knew nothing about. Good thing I was a fast learner! My funniest memory was one day she decided that we would make naked snowmen in front of their Boxford home. All of a sudden she started laughing hystericaly and told me that my snowman's anatomy was wrong. Oh well, that was just the beginning. She got married first, as well as pregnant, although she wasn't happy about that as she wanted to learn what to do through me. She really didn't need it. She was an amazing mom, daughter, and niece to her family, and it all came so natural.I am sure, now that she can have a drink, she is sitting in the sun with her Mom, Aunt Sue, and others. I miss her so much, but all I can say is thank you Jen for helping to make me the person I am today.

Jen took a chance on me, and I on her. She answered an an I had placed in the Tri-town News looking for "someone to share a home in a good school system with myself and a daughter, 10 years old", someone in a "similar situation". That woman was Jen. She opened her home to my daughter Jen and I and became my first friend in MA. That relationship continued through the years. Jen's friends, became my friends. Jen's doctor and dentist became my doctor and dentist. Jen literally pave a smooth path for myself and my daughter when we relocated from NY to MA. I will always be so grateful for the love and friendship she has shown me over the years. She truly showed me the way. Thanks Jen, I will forever be in your debt and will miss you sorely.

Pat and Mary Patterson

The first new neighbor we met after moving to Florida was Jen. She came to our door, introduced herself, and invited us down to their home several doors down from us. Jen and Bob have been wonderful friends since. Jen was one of Mary's best friends and they would often spend time together getting a lunch or shopping. The Super Bowl parties were always great! Jen made the best pineapple cheesecake. Jen was always ready to give you her honest opinion which was always spot on. Big smile, big heart, great lady, wonderful friend.

Robert and Karen Bliss

Jen and I met in MA when she worked for Pete Pulsifer. Robert and I were heading to FL around Super Bowl weekend. Prior to our departure for FL, Jen and I were emailing back and forth trying to figure out when we could stop by when Pete and Kay were there. We stayed at a nearby hotel, and I called Jen to let her know we were on our way. When we knocked on their door, Bob/Jen told Pete to answer the door. The look on his face was priceless, and our surprise was worth it. As Pete said in his Memory, Jen and Bob were superb hosts. We shared a wonderful evening with wonderful people. So many years ago but it was a night worth remembering. May you rest in peace, Jen.

Pete & Kay Pulsifer

Jen was my admin in MA for a number of years. She & Bob hosted Super Bowl parties at there.home in NH. When they decided to move to FL Jen said “ the Super Bowl parties will go on. If you can get here we will put you up for the long weekend.‘. For the next 15 years Kay and I went to FL for Super Bowl weekend. That was Jen and her giving personality. She & Bob were superb hosts. As such she will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. RIP.
