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 asked

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 touched my heart so profoundly with her sweet, loving nature and her vibrant, positive spirit. I am so glad that I told her very recently that I loved her unconditionally and that nothing would ever change that. The world has lost a great light, but I believe that everyone who knew her will carry a little of that light in their hearts. The very reason that we are all mourning her loss so much is that she brought so

I never had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer in person. Our paths met after the passing of Clint. Clint and I grew up together as kids and she asked me to give her stories about Clint as a child, so the kids could know all about their father. I came to know her through Facebook and she was such a tremendous person. The world has truly lost one of the special people who only add to this life. My prayers to the children. Jennifer, may you find peace with Clint in heaven!!

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

I remember the garage door of the playroom opening and happy children spilling out. Jen would stand in the front yard, wearing a baby, and talk to the neighbors. She usually had one major project she was focused on with three others on the back burner and I never doubted she would finish everything. I watched her run her home with awe and admiration.

We miss you, Jen!

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
