Date of Birth: April 12, 1978
I sit here today to reflect on my beautiful daughter and all the joy she brought everyone she touched. Jennifer is the oldest of my three children and has been an inspiration to us all. Since Jennifer started walking at the age of eight and a half months there was no stopping her. Always a quick learner and independent.
Her brother and sister were very close to Jennifer and they were always there for each other. Jennifer was the first one in the family to graduate college, something she was very proud of as well as her family. Jennifer always set goals in her life and planned everything. She always said she going to make something of herself, and she did. She was so proud of her job at Cantor Fitzgerald and was determined to move up quickly in the company. She was with the company for a little over a year, right after she graduated St. Joseph College in Brooklyn in 2000.
Jennifer and her fiance Anthony Roman were ready to plan their Wedding Day now that she had her career started and he was in the police academy. They were together almost six years. Their first big date was Jennifer’s High School prom; she graduated from Grover Cleveland High School. Jennifer and Anthony were inseparable, a beautiful couple that planned and worked so hard for their future together.
Besides being a loving daughter, sister and fiancee Jennifer also acquired many friends in her life. Her best friend Catherine Browne and Jennifer were like sisters more than friends and is deeply missed by her. Wherever Jenn went she made friends along the way. She also made dear friends at Cantor, especially Christina who has also now been there for me when I needed to talk to someone; she was always there to listen.
In closing, let me say this is the hardest thing I will ever have to do. Words could not express how I miss you Jennifer. I know I’ve always told you how proud I am of you and how much I love you but I wish I had one more day to tell you again. To let you know that you are an inspiration to us all for all you accomplished.
Jennifer is also missed by her grandfather, grandmother, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, her godchild Kayla, and especially her brother-in-law John Bonetti and Alyssa Bonetti, Jennifer’s first niece, whom she never got to see. Till I’m with you again your love and your memories will be forever in my heart.
Love, Mom and Dad
