Teachers look back and remember different years for different reasons. Jenna was a student in one such memorable class - my 5th grade class of 2004-2005. I told the students then and have repeated it often - that was the class that I wish I could have just "looped" with until they graduated and then I would retire a happy person. Jenna was a significant part of that being such a wonderful year. As many will agree - her smile would brighten up the room, her attitude would put things in the right perspective, and her genuine care for others would motivate all to do the right thing. I am thankful that I kept keepsakes from that year, including ones from Jenna. God has a perfect plan, and though we don't always understand, my prayer is that all of us will take what we loved so much about Jenna and make it part of our own lives to touch others who need a gesture of kindness, a tender word, a smile - those things that came naturally to Jenna. Prayers that the family will find comfort and peace in knowing how much Jenna was loved and how many lives have been enriched because of her.
September 06, 2013
Lisa my friend, I am so sorry to hear of your terrible loss. My heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. Jenna was an amazing person loved by so many. May you take comfort in the fact that you raised her well and she loved you for that. My love and prayers.

Your Jenna was quite an inspiration to so many in such a short time! After seeing her story on the news and reading the tributes here, I feel as though many of us, healthy and disabled, shall rethink our situations and work a little harder to aspire to be the best that we can. I know I will. May the Jenna Strong spirit live on through all of us. And may God comfort her family, especially her Mom, in this time of sorrow. Thank you for sharing such a precious life and soul.
September 05, 2013
Jenna was a beautiful young lady who lived life to the fullest. My heart aches for you and your family. Please know you are all in my prayers.

I had the privilege of teaching Jenna in 7th grade. Even then, she possessed a wisdom about life that was unparalleled. On the track, she clearly had a gift for speed. But in daily life, where so many of us rush, Jenna knew precisely when to slow down and be fully present, even as a 7th grader. Her joy was simply infectious. What a remarkable and beautiful person you raised, Lisa. My deepest condolences to you and all of Jenna's family and friends. She will always hold a special place in my heart.
September 05, 2013
Jenna was a great friend to my daughter and a great source of joy to me...she always made me smile. I think Jenna made everyone want to be a little kinder and complain a little less. So glad I had the privilege of knowing her.
September 05, 2013
I believe my daughter who also ran on Saturday said it best...even though we never met you, you've seemed to change our lives.
September 05, 2013
I am an IU runner who appeared in a photo of us racing. I did not know we raced until I saw the picture which I have attached. My deepest condolences, and it is an honor to have raced such a tough girl.
September 05, 2013
My deepest sympathies to the entire Parlette family, I am so sorry for your loss, I will be praying for your peace and comfort.....Most Sincerely, Frank Bustillo

I will never forget her good nature, her kindness and of course her chicken dance. She was certainly one my greatest joys while coaching youth Vollyball
September 05, 2013
Jenna was without a doubt, one of my happiest and most vivacious students that I have ever had the pleasure to teach. She worked so hard at every aspect of her life, and she was truly a role model for all who were lucky enough to be apart of her life. God Bless you, Jenna. You will be sorely missed.
September 05, 2013
My condolences to the Parlette family, I didn't personally know Jenna, but I'm sure I've seen her at cross country events watching other youth runners from our Church. May God bless and comfort you in this time of grief. My prayers are with you.

I will never forget the many days and nights spent with Jenna during my childhood. Her smile and optimistic personality never failed to brighten my day.

Thoughts and prayers for all those that loved Jenna. Regretfully, I never got to meet her, but from the testament of those that did she was a beautiful lady and a wonderful inspiration to all!
September 05, 2013
Jenna was such a bright light and enduring spirit. I first met her in 2010 when she did a CPR story for the American Heart Association. She inspired me with her "keep going" attitude, despite her disibility. What a marvelous young woman and inspiration to all! Our deepest sympathy to your family. Beth Langefels and your friends at the American Heart Association.
September 05, 2013
Theres no words that can really describe how special you were and how much you met to me. but you were an inspiration to everyone around you. You were always so optimistic and you were always there for me when i needed a friend. I love you and I miss you already, but I know that your in a better place now.I know you wouldnt want us to be sad and upset so im gonna try and keep my head up and keep chasing my dreams. you never gave up and i wont either.
September 05, 2013

My heart goes out to you at this very difficult time. Your Jenna was the light of your life and so very, very loved by many. Please let me know if there is anything at all I can do for you.
September 05, 2013
I was blessed to have Jenna in my 4th Grade class and can still see her big eyes and contagious smile. She was the kind of student that inspired you as a teacher. Jenna was the definition of an "energy giver." I am sorry Lisa for your loss. My family's prayers are with you and your family.

September 05, 2013
Jenna, you will be missed at the STAC. You were one of my favorite people there. God bless the Parlette family during this difficult time.
September 04, 2013
Jenna was one of the most remarkable young women I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. As a little girl her smile could light up a room and it never changed throughout her life. Her strength and positive attitude and the beauty that existed and will always exist between her mother Lisa and her will be a memory I will keep in my heart always. Lisa, please know that I love you and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your mom and dad.
September 04, 2013
Lisa, my heart is broken for you.

Jenna has fought the good fight. She has finished the race. She has kept the faith. I will always think of her when I read these words from 2 Timothy 4:7. She always gave me inspiration!

I put on our church sign her famous phrase "Run with your legs - Win with your heart".

My prayers are with her family and friends.
September 04, 2013
Sending prayers for your comfort and peace!
September 04, 2013

We were not close friends in high school, but we shared a few classes together. Your selfless personality is what I loved most about you. You certainly left an impact here on earth. May you RIP. You will be missed.
September 04, 2013

September 04, 2013
In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.
September 04, 2013
Jenna was the most beautiful, loving and driven person I have ever met with a love for running. I'm so glad she was able to continue her passion and overcome any obstacles that tried to get in her way. I witnessed the most beautiful relationship any Daughter could ever have with their Mother. Lisa and Jenna made the perfect team and I know Lisa will continue Jenna's legacy 'Jenna Strong' forever. My deepest sympathy to the Partlette Family, Relatives, Classmates, Teachers, Neighbors and Friends.
September 04, 2013
I'm glad you left doing what you loved Jenna; nothing could stop you and your passion. I'm so sad to see you go and devastated on what has happened I'm just glad I had the opportunity to have your smile in my life and your kindness. We ran track together and I'm very proud of what you have accomplished. I myself acquired a heart condition not long after high school and had to be monitored and am glad I could share that struggle with you. I know everyone here in Miamisburg loves and misses you. My prayers go out to your family. I will miss you Jenna.
September 04, 2013
There are simply not enough words explaining how I feel and the differences Jenna's story has made in my life and the lives of my teammates. Though I didn't personally know Jenna we shared a connection, a dedication and love for a run. It's an addiction. Jenna will forever be remembered, by not only loved ones but by those who have competed against her and those who like Jenna, live to run. She is a great inspiration and as I run for myself and my school, I will also Run for Jenna <3
September 04, 2013
Words cannot even begin to express my sorrow....
May peace and comfort find you during this difficult time.
September 04, 2013
