My deepest sympathy to Mrs. Wills and the family... I've missed Jennie for years... She was one of my dearest friends for a number of years... I had so hoped to reconnect with her... I so wish I had known she was sick. I only just found out last night so, I'm saddened that I'm unable to attend services...

I too worked with Jennifer at G&E and CRA. She loved her family and her church beyond words. Especially her dear Daddy. She always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. She will be missed. Rest In Peace, Jen!

Jennifer was one of my favorite coworkers while she was at G&E Engineering/CRA. I always loved seeing her come in each morning with that gorgeous smile and winning personality. I missed her when she left the company and went to work for a competitor (their gain, our loss!). She was a joy to be around both professionally and socially. I cannot imagine how the family feels losing her at such a young age. The world was better off with her in it and now she is another angel cheering on an angelic choir. Jennifer made my life better and I'll never forget her!

I met Jennifer when we both worked at CRA. She came to Houston to help on a very large project that we were working on. It has been about 20 years and we had remained great friends since then. She had a wonderful laugh and a wonderful way of looking at life. My heart is very sad that you're gone, but I'm happy you're no longer suffering. Rest in Peace my dear friend. I will miss you. Love you.

Heaven keeps getting better, but we will miss this dear, sweet, fun and faithful friend here on earth. I know God's Word says that when someone in Christ passes, we grieve with hope (1 Thessalonians 4:13), as we will see them again (John 3:16-17). Yet, I know we still grieve-so I pray for Jennifer's husband, mom, and each member of her wonderful family. May God comfort y'all through His permanent presence during Jennifer's temporary absence. Yours in Christ Jesus, Jim & Anne (Douglas) Solomon

My sincere condolences go out to Jennifer's family at this time of incredible grief. I was lucky enough to have met my sweet Jenny "Poo" when hired on at CRA many years ago. We worked together for ten years and continued that friendship for many years after staying in constant touch. She had a heart as big as the ocean. Always with that big, beautiful smile and long tight hugs. She and I shared many things...laughter, tears, tears through laughter, and great prayers. She was always best at finding the perfect words of prayer. She always told me I was her best friend...for that I am grateful. I will miss this precious friend of mine...

I have so many great memories of her. We met through the single's group at church around 1996 and sang on the worship team together. Her laugh keeps playing in my head. I know she is laughing in heaven now with her dear daddy who she adored.
