WASHINGTON, D.C. | On Wednesday, March 31, 2021, Jennie Munoz, loving daughter, sister, and friend passed away at 43. She was born on January 18, 1978 in Stockton, California to Maria Socorro Vargas and Juan Munoz-Botello.
With hard work and dedication, she went on to achieve a Bachelors and Masters in Social Work pursuing her lifelong passion for championing human rights around the world. Jennie's determination to serve on the front lines of foreign policy even took her overseas on tours in Venezuela and Sudan.

"I believe that in order to achieve something, whether it be success, love, or prestige, one must go through obstacles and overcome them with endurance, courage, and most importantly, love for all things. Therefore, I can say that my future may be full of struggles and hardships, but I will overcome them with strength and spirit, just as my parents taught me." - Jennie Munoz, Briar Cliff University Review 1997
