Jennifer and Jeff were sealed to one another in the Salt Lake Temple for time and all eternity, on April 11, 1996.

Their legacy of love and devotion is an inspiration to those who were fortunate enough to have witnessed their companionship.
She gave birth to her daughter Katelyn on August 2, 1997, and then her son Cody on April 23, 2000. There was no greater joy in her life than her kids, of whom she was so proud of, she would do anything for Cody and Katelyn.

She loved animals and had a very special dog named Harley. She loved anything to do with frogs. She loved to plant flowers in the spring.
She had an amazing laugh that everyone loved. She would laugh so hard she would wheeze.

Jennifer knew that we were to experience joy in life, so she sought out laughter and smiles relentlessly.
