We moved to Florida from New Jersey in 2003, the same year when Clint came to UF. Occasionally, I met Clint at the campus and he was always very friendly to chat with me, so I knew he had two kids... then three... then four....and he told me Jenn was home schooling the kids, that was really amazing~~~

I remembered I had a toddler bed that my kids were growing out but still in very good shape, so I

Do not worry if suddenly the person you loved is gone. Realize that love is in and out of our lives. But true love is forever . Blessed be.

Jennifer was a friend to my daughter when they were teens, and visited in our home as such. (I was divorced and a single mom, working as an LVN at that time.) She always had a shy, sweet presence and an easy smile even then. Holly and she stayed in touch, and because of their friendship, I continued to see her for happy events, and to hear updates on Jennifer's life. Her loves, her happiness, her successes, her tragic loss

Even though it has been several years since I worked with Jennifer, she left a lasting impression on me. I remember her sparkle, quick wit and gentle grace and I especially admired her close, loving relationship with her devoted husband, Clint.
To Jennifer's family and friends, please accept my sincere sympathy on her untimely passing. I hope you find some consolation in the outpouring of sympathy, memorial entries, and offers of support.

Jennifer was one of the women to whom I looked up to as an example of what mothering was all about - she taught me so much. She seemed to have an intuition for what her friends needed in their lives and her gentle way of approaching advice always left you feeling uplifted and understood. I am the parent I am today because of her compassion and commitment to our mama community.

I enjoyed getting to know her and Clint

Dearest Jennifer...The blame was never yours to assume; this consequence should never have been yours to bear. Rest now and be with the one who truly loved you. Without any doubts, I know that you and he will continue to guide, nurture, and love your five precious babies from up above.

I never got the chance to tell you how much I admired your strength, your beauty, your grace and your devotion to your children. I whisper it now and pray that you hear me...I admire you! I admire you! I admire you!

Be at peace,

I was one of Jen's husband's graduate students at the University of Florida, so only met her a few times. Nevertheless, I felt a connection to her family and followed her facebook updates after Dr. Slatton's passing. I loved reading her statuses about her and her children and it always made me feel like a part of her life when she'd respond to my comments/statuses, as trivial as that may seem. I am very sorry to know of her own

Jennifer and I met at Westwood High School and reconnected in the last year. We bonded over both of our big families. She was truly an inspiration to me as a mom, a person, and a kindred spirit. She was so full of light, love, strength, grace, and wisdom. I really hope she knew how amazing she was and how loved she was. She is at peace now with Clint watching over those beautiful children of theirs. May light and

When Jennifer and I lived in Gainesville together she came to my prenatal yoga classes while she was pregnant. Jennifer glowed from the inside out and the outside in and she embodied the spirit of motherhood as God intended all women to do. May you be surrounded by love and light and may all those whose lives you touched, particularly your children find moments of Grace throughout their lives so they can know you will always be with them.
