I knew Jen just shy of 14 years and she helped me through stuff just like she did to everyone else who asked for help. She was so fun to be around and I speak for my family when I say she will be deeply missed.

On behalf of my brothers, Gene and Roger, I would like to extend our sincerest sympathies to the Newburn and Montgomery families. Knowing Jen from when she was a kid to, for years as an adult, exchanging Christmas cards with humourous comments, Jen's kind and happy nature is what trancended.

Love & Peace to you Jennifer,
John Ernst
