Jennifer was the person who brought joy and life to every occasion. Her spirit and zest for living was unparalleled, and the natural ease of making others smile and laugh was her special gift, experienced by those who knew her. Everyone has a story line and inspirational goals - Jennifer had an unwavering energy which brought light and positivity to every interaction, personal or professional.
Instilled at a young age with the love for dance and entertaining others, Jennifer enjoyed a long and respected career as a professional ballroom dance instructor, first with the Arthur Murray Dance Studio and later as owner of the Ballroom by Jennifer in Dubuque, Iowa. She had a profound and positive impact on the lives of her students and friends by way of kindness, truth, and the passion of personal expression through the art of dance.
Jennifer brought these same attributes to the corporate environment. Upon retirement from dance, she transitioned her unique qualities of personal touch and relationship building into the operations and organic growth of SMS Assist, a technology and facility maintainace company in Chicago, where Jennifer inspired new colleague friendships and business relationships.
