  1. I am shocked to hear this news. I just let to much distance between You, Tom and myself happen. I miss you both and the days college and cold ones at Rip Rocks in Denton. Those were the days.

  2. JJ, Mike and I are sorry to hear that you are no longer with us. We are thankful to have known you. I met you in Denton, TX late 1990’s with another UNT student and good friend Courtny. You did not even know me well but made me feel welcome. Your generosity, kindness, and love are what keep your memory alive. You had no problem standing up for others or expressing your beliefs and that took so much courage. You believed in people and did love your family. You were compassionate with an amazing sense of humor. We pray you are at peace with your mom and that your family has peace and healing during this time.
    Love you 🙏🏾❤️

  3. Jordan, Carolyn, and family,
    My heart was broken for your family when I heard the news. What a beautiful, kind and generous girl. I know she leaves a void for you right now. I also know your faith is strong and you will lean on your Heavenly Father to get through this journey called grief. My condolences to you and all of your extended family.

  4. Dear friend..At the reunion you got caught in the parade and was forced to drive the route. A moment I will never forget! You handled it in your wonderfully usual way of great humor, smiling, laughing, and with grace. Most of all you made me think and that’s not always easy. Thank you JJ for your friendship, love, and all the other gifts you gave me.

  5. Jordan,
    Whit & I are so sorry for your loss! I lost my 8-year-old daughter in 1996 and there is nothing to compare to the grief nor words that can offer relief! I pray God’s supernatural peace, comfort and understanding surrounds you and the whole family!

  6. My heart is completely broken over this news. It’s been awhile since I’ve talked to her – but every time We talked – it was as if we never lost touch … I am so so sorry for your loss. Words can’t express adequately enough how sorry I am. May the Holy Spirit comfort you with love and peace during this time.

  7. Jordan,
    I cannot say I understand but I can say I can only imagine how your-heart is broken in-this-loss. My Beth, classmate of Jennifer just got-out-of quarantine with COVID and I had some-scary-times of what would I do if this happened. I am so saddened for you and the family. Just newly-wed and sounds successful in life. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others are telling you is right, wrong or indifferent. Travel this pathway in your-individual way; there are no-pathways as you know but individual-ones for each. May God comfort you as you cling tightly to His unfailing-and-unchanging hand. I have each-of-you in my-thoughts and prayers. I have lost total-control of almost everyone since my-family moved from the area after Tom went to be with His Lord in 2002. I stayed a year and enjoyed plus was blessed greatly in my-grieving first-year by your Sunday School-leadership.
