In some of her free time, Jennifer volunteered as a Little League coach to spread her love of baseball.
Jennifer put everyone before herself and tried her best to make everyone happy. She was selfless and loved with everything she had. Her enjoyment was found watching her four children grow, working alongside Jordan Rhodes for many years whom she loved like her own son, and living a life full of adventure, fun, and love.
