 SAINT CROIX FALLS, WI
On September 5, 2016, Jenna was hit by a stray bullet in a downtown Minneapolis parking lot after leaving a birthday party.

After a 8 week long and courageous battle, Jenna succumbed to her injuries on October 29th.

Words cannot express how grateful Jenna's family is for the kindness , caring and compassion that everyone has shown to support Jenna during this tragic time.

Jenna wanted a Life Celebration and ALL of you are invited to share in celebrating her glorious life this Sunday on November 6th from 1-5 pm at the Fred Babcock VFW Post located at 6715 Lake Shore Drive in Richfield MN 55423.

Hope to see everyone there, please bring a story to share about Jenna.

I agree with Nicole. I look everyday to see how Jenna is doing and appreciate the updates. I can't believe it's 5 wks! I pray that she is healed from head to toe. That the Lord fills Jenna's room with His presence. That He gives you peace that surprises all understanding.That He gives wisdom and guidance to the Drs and nurses that are taking care of Jenna. He knows how much she is loved becuz He loves her too. After all He knit her in her mothers womb ( Deb) He knows every hair on her head. Trust in Him . Know that His timing isn't our timing but His is perfect. We place the broken body of Jenna at your feet.. Father God and we trust you to heal her little body. Thank you Jesus... Amen Deb... My offer to help still stands. I think of you many times in a single day. Know you have many that are praying for Jenna and you. Hugs.. Nancy & Kuma.

Just wanted to say that I appreciate the daily updates so much! I check my email every morning to see a new update. It reminds me every time to say an extra prayer for Jenna. I can't imagine how hard it must be to stay strong and support and advocate for her every day and then take the time to write to everyone on here. You are an incredibly strong woman and I'm guessing this is where Jenna gets her strength. Love and lots of prayers to you, Jenna the family and friends❤

For Jenna and Deb «Psalm 138 Psalm 139 (Listen) Psalm 140» Psalm 139:1-18New International Version (NIV) Psalm 139 For the director of music. Of David. A psalm. 1 You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. 4 Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. 5 You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. 7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, 10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” 12 even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God! How vast is the sum of them! 18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.
