She was employed as a kindergarten teacher at the Jameson Elementary School in Old Orchard Beach. She referred to this as her dream job and touched the lives of many students. She truly loved working with children.
Jennifer was loved by many, known to light up a room and be the life of the party. She loved spending time with her three sisters, her large group of friends, being an auntie, and most of all, she loved being a mom, and wife.
