  1. Jen was such a caring, compassionate, and supportive celebrant. She supported us with the passing of our son. I just hope her family can find comfort in the beautiful things she has done for others.

  2. Oh, Jen. You’re so loved and so missed. Little snippets of conversation I’ve had with you that taught me much, and ran deeper than you imagined keep coming to my mind. All my love to you and yours. Find peace Paul, Nick, Meg and Alice. Jen is at peace already. xxx

  3. Deepest sympathy to Paul, Nick, Alice and Megan. Very saddened to hear the passing of Jennifer. I grew up in Hamilton with her and going to the same schools and later teaching some of my children at Brauer college, always has been a beautiful, kind person with her welcome smile. You were compassionate after I lost my husband and young son, and also in celebrating the life of a friends Dad after his passing. You will be greatly missed by your husband Paul and family and the wider communities of Port Fairy and Warrnambool.
