I worked with Clint at UT/CSR in his grad school days. When he told us about Jen he absolutely lit up. We followed his career and the growth of their family. What a beautiful group, inside and out. I reconnected with Jen during Clint's illness, as my husband was also fighting cancer at a very young age. We followed each other's caring bridge and facebook updates. Jen's writings were just so unbelievable...she was definitely a writer. With Clint's passing, I

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.

I met Jennifer while waiting for the school bus. I took one look at her, summed her up to be snooty. Funny thing is that she thought the same of me. Luckily, though, neither one of us listened to our inner voice, for it was wrong.

She and I became the closest of friends- at a time when we both needed each other. Although she was only 2 months older than I, she seemed infinitely wiser (and cooler).

Jen and Clint were introduced to me by a friend when Clint was going through his cancer struggle. I immediately felt a connection as a woman with a husband Clint's age and three young children. I followed Jen's blogging on caring bridge about Clint and corresponded. Her tragic death saddens me tremendously. I pray for the children's well being as well as all family and friends who loved them both.

My heart goes out to the Slatton and Coleman families in their sorrow upon the death of Jenn. Her time on earth was much too short, but she's left a lasting legacy in her wonderful children and the memories all who knew her hold dearly. She was a wonderful support to Clint in his time of need.

Rest in peace, dear Jenn.

I don't even know you but I was struck by your beauty and grace so evident in the picture. Now, after reading the memories shared by your friends, family, and acquaintances, I see that my instinct was right on target. You were loved, are still loved, and will be greatly missed. I offer my condolences as a perfect stranger, although I feel like, had we known each other, we would have been friends. My prayers are with you, your family, and all of your loved ones.

My heart breaks for Jen and Clint's children and family. I knew them during Clint's graduate student days at UT/CSR, and my daughter was pregnant at the same time Jen was expecting Emma. Every morning Clint checked in with me to see if our baby had come yet, and it turned into a "race." Very happy memories! They were such a beautiful young couple and such loving parents. It's just really difficult for me to absorb Jen's death. I can't imagine your loss. My prayers are with you always.

One of the most wonderful things about my relationship with Jen is that for the past couple years, it was primarily on the phone. So, I will never forget her voice. And when I reflect on our conversations, or reread her emails, I can still hear her with crystal clarity.

I'll never forget my first time meeting Jen. I was sitting alone at a table in the high school cafeteria. My friend Chris Cunningham walked up to my table with
