    Jane, Dennis, & Joey, I am beyond devastated & so sorry for your loss, your beautiful daughter & sister Jenny. No words can take away the grief from losing your child. I loved Jenny like a niece. She was a beautiful ray of sunshine in all my family’s lives, as she grew up & we have so many wonderful memories of life with Jenny & your family. May God comfort all of you as you are going through this horrific tragedy. If there’s anything I can do I am still your friend.
    Love, Hugs, & Prayers, Florence

    When Jenny interviewed for the speech teacher position at RJ Bailey School everyone on the selection committee agreed that she was the perfect person for our students and all our Bailey family. As her principal, I observed her professionalism and her sincere kindness. Jenny exuded energy and love throughout the school. She often stopped in to chat and share… and always cared about my life and family. She was a generous, funny, joyful, friendly, bright, loving, beautiful young woman. When I retired I missed her, and occasionally stayed in touch. I cannot believe she’s gone. What a tremendous loss.

    I pray her family has strength and courage to soothe their broken hearts. Sending much love- Marge Clarkson

    Jenny and I met while working the summer program and I learned how special she really was. She was always a pleasure to be around and had a contagious smile. Her passing is a huge loss to the staff, faculty and students of Rj Bailey, but she leaves behind fond memories that will forever live in our hearts.

    Jenny was at true light for the students she came in contact with, as well as the staff. I will miss her jokes and pretty smile. She would often bring her lunch into the classroom, eat and we would have good conversation. Will miss that. Jenny would send random text messages or videos to me that were just funny and relevant. Many times I’d sit in her room and we would just enjoy each other’s company. Whether Jenny was in her room, other classes, on bus duty, she’d always have a story and a good laugh for you. Most of all, there was nothing she wouldn’t do to help out in any way possible. I will truly miss Jenny Elber.

    Jenny was a very special person. Always caring and generously sharing her knowledge. Even though her home base was RJB, she extended herself to help all children in GCSD. My sincere condolences to the Elber family. Jenny will be deeply missed. We lost a valuable GCSD family member.

    I am tremendously heartbroken and inconsolable. I should not be writing this. Jenny was a such a important person in my life, a loyal and generous friend. We both bonded over our ability to laugh over the smallest things.She was a person who’s presence radiated the room when she walked in. She was always willing to go above and beyond and help anyone in need. I love her dearly and her not being here will leave a tremendous void in my life.

      Jenny Elber my sweet beautiful crazy friend. I love you and I will never forget your laugh, smile, our memories and great conversations. We go way back. Great talks about Mrs. Clarkson and how we missed her when she retired. We talked about everything from personal to work related. You always told me your feelings. It’s crazy I will not hear you anymore. It freaks me out still. You always trusted me and I trusted you. You always wanted me to see how strong, cool and smart you was. You love me and my sister Kyle and always told me how you enjoyed our vibes. We had so many great times. I will never forget you. I appreciate all the things you bought me and gave to me and my daughter who you loved so much. I love your family as well. Dag Jenny we just spoke last week. I miss you so much. Jenny I appreciate how you depended on me and told me you love me. We use to take naps together off the clock or on break and eat good stuff together. I miss you. My condolences to Keira, your mom and husband and whole family. S.I.P my girl. I pray for your soul!!🙏🤧😇😪

    When I began working at RJ Bailey School last year, I was going through a really difficult time in my life. I was able to get comfort in talking with you Jenny about everything and we would talk on the phone and text each other and laugh and you gave great advice. You really were a great coworker who became a friend. I’m really going to miss you and being able to text or come to your room to see you and laugh and joke and tell random funny stories. I’m so heartbroken. Keeping your family in prayer. I love you Jenny. Forever in our hearts. Love, Natasha Jackson

    I’m so lucky to have had the opportunity to not only work with Jenny but also have a friendship. When she walked into the room, not only the children’s faces got excited; but mine did as well. She was quick witted and her humor; no matter the occasion, was on point. She was dedicated to children; constantly advocating for them. We shared a lot of personal experiences together! I will miss her greatly, think of her often, and pray for the family daily

    When Jenny and I first met, I knew early on she would be a very special person in my life. We knew each other before Gburgh, as we both worked per diem. As I watched her interaction with kids, I was in awe to witness her compassion, humor, and skillful delivery of her craft. I knew that we needed her at Gburgh, so when the position at RJB was posted, she naturally assumed her place in that building with an ease and grace unlike no other. My position at work was to mentor her so we were in frequent contact, but our relationship quickly became so much more than our assigned roles. We bonded very quickly. Our laughter was uncontrollable and often occurred at the most inopportune moments. All we had to do was make eye contact, and we immediately knew what the other was thinking. No words needed. She was the most fun, loyal and brilliant friend ever. She always knew the perfect thing to say with the utmost sincerity. People felt good when they were with her. Jenny had a very protective side to her too. I could tell her anything. She not only kept it in her vault, but she was a master at problem solving. If I was upset about something, or just on one of my rants, she would magically appear at my door to make sure that I was ok as she listened and was just there for me. Our mutual love for Freddie Mercury extended to Kiera as our plans to see Almost Queen were crushed more than twice by Covid. We had so many plans that just never happened. I recall when she asked me to find out if my husband could build her a Tiny Home, that she saw on HGTV. Even though he strongly advised against it and gave his reasons, she waived off his protests and said that once she found the property, she would contact him to start the project. She told me that she didn’t care what she needed to get rid of, to fit her things in her Tiny Home, because it would be her dream come true. That conversation was my reminder that Jenny didn’t value possessions. She valued people; she valued her time with people. She valued the joy they brought to her life, and more importantly, the joy she brought to everyone’s life. My last words to her on Friday were, I love you, not thinking this was it, but thinking that she needed to know how loved she truly was.
    Sleep in Peace my sweet Jenny. I will miss you and love you forever.
