Dear Donna, I am so sad hearing about Jens passing. She was such a wonderful brave, loving person. I will always be grateful that I was her nurse for many years. She was not just my patient but my friend too. We had many happy visits together. Danielle and Randy also send their condolences. I pray that God will give you strength to weather her passing. You were and are a wonderful Mom to her. She loves you so much. I know she is in heaven looking down with peace and happiness. Sending love to you and all of your family. Annette McKitrick

I feel blessed to have had such a sweet and loving cousin that Jen was.She always had a hug for me and always said I love you. She will be missed by everyone who knew her Rest in peace to a truely special person Love Lisa
I grew up with the first generation of Schull’s and Ward’s. When Donna was having Jonathan and Jennifer, i was busy having my own family. I remember Jennifer as just such a sweet baby. So pretty and She and my daughter were great friends in church nursery. As I would see Donna and Jennifer at church functions, it never ceased to amaze me that Jenny always had a huge smile on her face. Always said hello to people like she knew them. Just a warm sweet spirit. Rest Jenny. you were and are loved by many.
I had the honor of knowing Jen for the past 11 years. She was one of the kindest, most generous people I have ever known. The moment people met her, they loved her instantly. I think it was her bright smile and ability to care for others, even through her own struggles. Jen never called me her counselor- she always called me her friend and I was truly blessed to have known her. Rest in peace, my friend, until we meet again. Love, Tracy
I only knew Jennifer a short time . I could tell she was a special person, always a smile and a good word for everyone. You will be missed. Rest in peace Jen. One of your many friends at the West Haven Elks Bingo.
I remember the day that I first laid eyes on Jennifer in the hospital. She had so much hair and she looked at me as if she was searching for something. From day one I pretended that she was my baby. Luckily, it was summertime so I had a few weeks before going back to school to .play with my new baby.. My Mom went back to work and .hired me. to be her babysitter. I was in heaven. As she grew, we took swimming lessons, went to ballet, picnics in the park, bike-riding and many fun activities. I was fortunate enough to have Jen stay with me in California for 6 weeks in the summer of her 4th year. I had to convince Mom to let her go..(Mom had a huge job with Yale Medical in the Department of Pathology). Mom missed her terribly but I had so much fun! I practiced having a child of my own and Jen was the reason I wanted children later in life. When Jen was diagnosed with her brain tumor at 18 we all fell apart. Geoff and I rushed to New Haven and managed to be there when she woke up from surgery. She had a smile on her face for us! From that moment on Jen showed us her strength and spirit throughout the last 14 years. Fighting like hell with such determination! Jen had a smile & kind word for everyone she came into contact with. Her one-liners were priceless and her quick wit amazed me. My husband Geoff shared this with Jen and they bantered back and forth…was so much fun to watch! I will miss my angel Jenny every day. I am so very thankful that she was with us for so long and I am more thankful that she will watch over me for the rest of my life until I see her again. I know I will. I love you Jen!
It has been a very long time since I last saw Jen. What I remember of her is how wonderful she was. She always brought sunshine and determination everywhere she went. I remember how she excelled in high school as I am sure she likewise did for the remainder of her life. She would settle for nothing less. I can only imagine the wonderful reunion she is enjoying with her father. She was so blessed to be born into a beautiful and supportive family. God speed to Jen and her family.
Jen had a zest for life and those around her could feel the love that came from her. She was a very kind person and had only good to say about others. Jen was a star athlete. She played fast pitch hardball when she was in High School. What an arm that girl had! She also was a scholar and had a 4.0 GPA when she graduated from High School. Jen had a great love for her family and they for her! She often told me about visits to Penny or Todd’s home. She loved every single one of her nephews and nieces and there were a lot! Jen had a very special bond with her brother, Jonathan. They were there for each other through thick and thin. Jen loved her Mom and Dad with all of her heart! We know how grateful she was for her Mom who took such good care of her. We will miss you, Jen! We know that we will see you once again and that will be a day of rejoicing! I can’t wait to hear your sweet voice once again say, .I love you sooooo much!. Thank you for the love you gave us all!
Jen was such a sweet girl and very smart. I showed her some things on the computer and she got it quicker then my Yale student helpers. Everyone who knew her loved her. I lost my daughter and she is my angel. Jen is an angel to everyone who loved her,
My favorite memory of Jen is Wednesday nights at Amity Bowl. Bruce and I were in a bowling league and we would look for Jen each week to send us off with a great big smile and a huge hug. I told her every week that she gave the best hugs. Sending our love to all of Jen’s family that are saying .Until we meet again.. Much love.
No matter what life dealt her she always had a smile on her face,and a hug for all. She will always be one of the kindest,sweetest people I have known. I hope she finally has the peace she so truly deserves. I know there are many on the other side guiding & caring for her now. Your strength,wit,& kindness will be truly missed. Rest in peace love Lynne
We love Jen so much. We love her spunk. Her smile. Her friendliness and her supreme love for others. It was always a privilege to be in her presence…always with Donna at her side. We love you and wish you strength! Jen is flying high and happy right now! Much love, Jeff and Alexis Bigelow
When I first met Jen, we instantly connected by the simple fact that we share the same first name. Our connection strengthened as we shared stories of our friends, families, life experiences. During the 14 years I had the privilege of working with Jen, she taught me lessons about so many things ranging from playing the video game .Dr. Mario. to enduring the best and worst of life with humility and gratefulness. As a counselor, a friend, a fellow human being, I hope I’ve given her as much in return. She had such an appreciation for life, the world around her and the people in it. Everyone Jen met instantly loved her. She charmed people with her gentle nature, her innocent yet wise sense of humor, and her cheery attitude. This world definitely needs more angels like Jen– beautiful both inside and out. I’ll always value the imprint she’s left on my life. From .your Jenny. to .my Jenny., thank you and rest well, my friend. .Love your guts!.
