She was so full of laughter and life that her personality would instantly take away ones pain. She truly knew how to fully live life. She would constantly remind us, "You only live once." She was the only person we knew who lived by this quote. Jennifer was a Tech Sergeant at the Rickenbacker Air Force Base in Columbus, Ohio. She loved serving our country; her job meant the world to her. Jennifer dedicated herself as she pledged her allegiance to our flag as she stood by her fellow brothers and sisters in the military as they stood strong together as one nation under God. Jennifer was a strong, beautiful person, inside and out. She will be missed. She will always be by our side in spirit. We don't like to look as this as goodbye, but as until next time, at the gates of heaven. She will await us.
