You are an exemplary Man of God, a great beach-neighbor and a true friend, and if all that were not enough you bestowed the blessings of marriage unto Barbara and I some 34 years ago. I always looked forward to seeing you after a winter had passed by. I missed that this year, as you were readying for your next journey. Rest in peace, Father Skip. Our condolences to your extended family.
Our family really loved Father "Skip" he was very special to us. A great neighbor and treasured friend even after we moved to NV. He will be missed by so many. Our sincere sympathies to all his family. I know he is up front in heaven without anymore pain or worries. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Well done, good and faithful servant, and rest in the arms of the loving God you served so well for so many years. Thank you for all your kindnesses and assistance to myself and to countless others whose lives you touched. You will never be forgotten! -

My condolences to the bereaved family of Fr. Jennings. I will never such a great priest like him. We thank for his life and all that he has done in this world.

Skip was a wonderful priest and a wonderful friend.
It was a privilege to know him and he will be missed. Rest in peace Skip.
Father Jennings was a wonderful priest and guiding religious leader for many generations of families. He married my husband and I and was a friend of my family, particularly my parents who were active members of St. Joseph's Parish for more than 50 years. The retirement mass that was held for Father Jennings was so wonderful and a day I'll always cherish. We will miss his bright smile and kind heart.
I have photos of Fr. Jennings with five generations of my family, from my Grandmother to my Granddaughter. He married me,baptized my sons and grandchild. When I think of him I will always have a smile on my face.He not only touched my life,he touched my soul.
Words cannot express the sorrow we feel at the loss of this wonderful man. Father Jennings was the kind of priest that all priests should aspire to be. We feel privileged and blessed to have know him for so many years, and I appreciate him always being there for my family and myself.
All my sympathy to his family. I'm sure he's up in heaven catching up with his beloved parents, siblings, and his best friend Father Kelly.
RIP you will never be forgotten.

We apparently grew up for a time in the same parish, we were classmates in the seminary. Therefore I would like to offer my condolences to Skip's family and friends. His memory will be well served in the lives of those people whom he influenced in life.
Fr. Jennings was a kind, compassionate, and loving man. Thank you Fr. Jennings for your welcoming and friendly spirit.
First and foremost thanking God for the miraculous gift of Rev. Henry J. Skip Jennings and thanking Father for the selfless gift of his life to so many.
Father was truly a disciple of Christ here on earth and now perfect in heaven.
Father shared abundantly the gifts of love, faith, hope, charity, compassion, forgiveness and humor.
I will be eternally grateful for the guidance Father provided for my family.
Praying for Father's soul and all of the souls of the faithfully departed, especially those most in need of our prayers. Until we meet again!!!!
May the family find comfort in our Heavenly Father's promise at Isaiah 65:17,22-24.
Father Jennings was a living example of what a priest and friend should be. His love and kindness will never be forgotten. He seemed to always know when help was needed.

Many good times together with Fr. John, will miss you.
fond memories of father Jennings at St Joes school and church. Father Jennings you meant so much to so many.
I have fond memories of Father Jennings and can recall when he first came to St Joseph's-visited our classes. He married me, baptized my children and things he said in his sermons will continue to resonate in my mind and heart. Rest and enjoy lasting peace.
Fr. Jennings was a true priest. He lived for and with his people. His humanity as well as his spirituality showed forth in his sermons. I will always remember his extraordinary kindness at the time of my husband's death and his support throughout the years. He always showed his appreciation of what was done
for the parish. He will be sorely missed.
GOOD OF GOD . PEACE OF WORLD EVERYONE OUR ALL FAMILY ... LOVE OF JESUS.
A Holy Man. He was an inspiration of faith and understanding. He will be greatly missed. May he enjoy eternal life. He will forever be in our thoughts and prayers. R.I.P.
RIP Father Jennings, we love you!! <3
God has taken one of the sweetest and most wonderful priests this world has ever had. He was a wonderful parish priest to me and my family and a real friend when we needed one.. God Bless.. you will be greatly missed.
Love, the Vecchia & Guerriero families.
He was a great man. He taught us with much love. He baptized or son and many others in our family. He'll be missed, but also he'll finally meet with our Creator and that's something I'm sure Father Jennings would be happy for. Now Rest in peace Father Jennings. The Cruz family.
Fr. Jennings's death is a great loss, but his life was a greater gift. How is it that a person knows what you need? He had an innate intuition about people. His broad grin and welcoming hands reached out to all. His great sense of humor surely helped all of us laugh at ourselves. He was a realist, understanding the sorrows of all his parishioners, and as he referred to us, his family. When called upon he came, when confided in he listened
, when asked he gave. His kindness, his generosity, his mercy,his forgiveness will be remembered forever. HE is our Family, always present in spirit. Take him to you Lord and hold him in the palm of your hand.
Father Jennings was a wonderful priest and friend. He will be sorely missed. RIP.
Father Jennings is one of a kind. I have never meet a more caring, gentle, truly wonderful priest and he will be missed so much. I thank God that I have had him in my life for the many years I have know him. He has always been there for me during some tough times and I appreciate all the love, support & prayers he has given me. He will never be forgotten. Thank you Father Jennings for being such a blessing in my life. Love Karen Alves
