Jayne was not only a superior guidance counselor but also the best cheerleading coach ever. I was privileged to know her when she coached my daughter Morgan. She was a fabulous woman and I am so incredibly sorry. Our hearts are broken for her beautiful daughter Staci and her husband Bernie. You are both in my prayers and thoughts.

As a co-worker of Jayne's for 27 years, I can honestly say that I have never encountered anyone who touched so many people from every kind of background. Kids who excel at academics. Kids who struggle in the classroom. Athletes. Kids who had 100 friends. Kids who needed a friend. Freshmen. Seniors. Graduates. Kids who needed a mom. Kids who needed gentle love and kids who needed tough love. She knows all of their names.
It was so fitting that cheerleading was one of her passions. She will forever be our biggest cheerleader.
With my deepest sympathy and prayers.

Both shocked and saddened to hear of Jayne's passing. Had many happy times with her at SJV many years ago when we were starting our careers. Her enduring faith promises she is "home." May her daughter, husband and family take solace in knowing how loved she was in this life and what a footprint she left. You are all in my prayers at this time of grief.

My memories of Jayne are of a strong and impassioned coach who loved her kids and the sport of Cheerleading with a ferocity that was often unmatched. Her pride in Staci was an honor to experience and lit up her eyes with the radiance of the sun. Jayne was a force. Her legacy lives on in the lives of her daughter, husband, athletes and students, and all who were honored to know her. I am so deeply sorry for the loss of such a magnificent woman, counselor, mentor, and coach.

We were devestated to hear of Jayne's passing. I had the great pleasure of teaching Jayne at St. Pius X, as well as sharing many fine years as a colleague and friend at SJV. Jayne meant so much to my boys, whether it was helping them academically, or just getting them through their high school years. They always knew they could go to Aunt Jayne. Kathe always commented how Jayne was perfectly suited as a guidance counselor as she had an uncanny ability to relate to the youth at SJV. Jayne was a true inspiration and she will be greatly missed. We will always remember the good times. May she RIP! God bless Staci and Bernie. The Cooks, Barry, Kathe, Justin, and Zak
