Jenna was born March 18, 2004 in Amarillo. When Jenna was born, she was a tiny little fighter, strong and brave, and never let anything stop her from having a big smile on her face. 

She was a bright and beautiful young lady and anyone who got to meet Jenna would fall in love with her smile and laughter. She was always smiling no matter how bad her day was and her smile would light up the room. 

She loved her music, especially her Papa and Josh Turner. 

Jenna was a papa’s girl, but she is her momma’s baby girl. She had her daddy’s heart from day one and she loved her big brother so much. He was her best friend! And she loved her meme. 

Jenna loved having company come by and see her. When a song was played that she didn’t approve of, she quickly rolled her eyes for you to change to the next song. Jenna also enjoyed watching her favorite movie, “Open Season”. 

There are so many things about Jenna that everyone loved, she is going to be missed so much. We know she is with the Lord and is walking and dancing and no longer in pain.

Thank you, Jenna, for the lessons you taught everyone, and for the joy you brought into our lives and for the privilege of knowing and loving you. Your spirit will continue to inspire us, and your memory will always be a beacon of hope and love in our hearts.
