JIll and I met at Mount Mary University, where she became an adjunct in the Justice Program I directed. She was an amazing teacher and mentor to so many students for years. She loved teaching, law enforcement, and she just brought so much energy and insight to the program. Jill was especially aware of the challenges for some students having a tougher path. She spent hours of extra time as a mentor and support person. She was there for me too, as a friend and colleague. We shared many two hour lunches and never seemed to have enough time. I can't believe she's gone so soon. Her light will be remembered in my heart forever and I'm so grateful to have known her. RIP, Jill- you made a difference.

I could tell Jill was going to be a great police officer and a faithful friend the minute I shook her hand at her graduation ceremony from the police academy. It was an honor to know and work with her. May Jill rest now in peace free from the suffering she endured. My condolences to her Mother and family. Blessed are those who have died in the Lord;
let them rest from their labors, for their good deeds go with
