  • My deepest sympathy goes out to all of Jenny’s close friends and family. I did not know Jenny well, but she left a lasting impression of her good nature and her immense love for her family, especially for her beautiful daughter. May she rest in peace.

  • David and Judy,

    My sincere sympathy to you and your family. I can’t imagine the feeling of losing a child. I will keep your family in my prayers.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with Jenny’s family and friends. David and Judy i’m truly sorry for your loss.

  • This is so hard! Even tho I truly believe you are now in a better place with no pain, your absence is beyond words! I will miss our talks, play time with our kids together, late night sleep overs, dinner with our families, and just trying to figure out life together as friends. From the moment we met, we had so much in common and you, Maddie, and Chris became our family. My promise still holds true to love, protect and watch over maddie to the best of my ability. I will always remind her of you, tell her stories, and keep her strong with God. I will love and miss you my dear friend…..this isn’t forever, but until we meet again…..we all love you

  • I am sorry about your loss. Jenny used to work at the customer service at Kohl’s in Mansfield. I used to see her doing customer service when I used to work for KBS cleaning at Kohl’s in Mansfield. She will be missed.

  • My deepest sympathy to Chris, Maddie and the whole family. Jenny was a dear friend for many, many years and I will miss her very much! I’m very grateful that we had these last few years to reconnect and get to know Maddie, the little girl that Jenny always dreamed of having. Sweetie your Mommy loved you so very much, please never forget that she will always be with you.

  • My deepest sympathy to Chris, Maddie and the whole family. Jenny was a very dear childhood friend and I was lucky enough to reconnect with her when I moved back to Ohio and met her sweet little Maddie and we met Chris at our 20th class reunion. I saw Jenny briefly at this year’s Bellville Fair and we didn’t get a chance to talk it was a brief “hello” in passing. Jenny was still the sweet and kind person she was many years ago when we rode the bus to school with Angie Garber and spent so much time together. I am sorry I can’t make it to her funeral tonight, but please know she touched many lives and was a true and lovely friend. Take care… Amy and Curtis Cox and family

  • With Deepest Sympathy Chris & Maddie,
    Just thinking of you & your daughter knowing time’s are hard for you all now. We didn’t know Jenny, but I work with Chris & we are so sorry.
    Keep looking up cause she is watching over you both. We can’t take your pain away but know there are people thinking of you all..
    Leonard & Teresa Smith

  • Jenny was such a caring soul who loved everyone she met. I have so many fond memories of our childhood together and will always remember her laugh and smile. My deepest sympathy for Chris, Maddie, Dave, Jackie and the rest of the family.

  • I am so sorry to hear about Jenny. She was such a sweet dear person who I enjoyed working with when she was going to college. She dearly loved her sweet Maddie and always wanted the very best for her. All of her family will be in my prayers.
