We have been notified that our friend and colleague jlg killed herself this past September.

Jennifer had been long-suffering from both alcoholism and depression. The dismay of her ending is terrible and sad, especially for those who knew her to be a good and insightful friend. We'll save discussion of those aspects for Purgatory.

The notification came from Jennifer's daughter, who told us that her mother talked about the Ship frequently and that it was a very important part of her life. It seems fitting to in turn remember jlg here, about who she was and how important she was to us.

From early on, jlg and I recognized a highly-aligned affinity for each other. Both of us engineers, and both of us with sharp tongues. We were each other's allies in various stormy times, and trusted each other to "get" our humour. However narrow our porthole into each other's lives might have ultimately been, I will miss jlg terribly. She was my friend.

I met jlg at my very first shipmeet during her Great Southern Tour way back in 2006. It was a fun night filled with her laughter. That's how I'll remember her.

I met jlg once and talked to her occasionally here. We had a number of elements of our lives in common, although there were many more that did not intersect. We interacted less after we both retired from hosting, but she was still a friend.I will miss jlg. We are poorer for her loss.

She was a great gal, and we had lots of fun times together, both in Nashville and at our great Mardi Gras gathering in New Orleans years ago.

I'm sorry to hear of her death, sorrier to think of the pain and sadness she must have experienced. I know she loved her family, loved their life together. She was a great asset to the Ship, as well.

I'm sorry she's gone. Rest in peace, Jennifer.

Such sad news - my heart goes out to jlg and her family.

My favourite memory of jlg is of us both being part of the Sheep brigade in the Nativity play in 2002. She was definitely one of the stars of the show. So long Sheep 3 [Waterworks]

What Jack said.

It's all a bit hard to take in, but my thoughts are with her family and friends as they come to terms with all that happened and I pray that jlg has now found a peace which clearly evaded her in this life.

Sad news indeed.

So sorry to hear this.

As a mother of another small female engineer (just) and coming from an engineering background her stories of coping in the most incredible situations really struck a chord with me.

From what she posted more recently it has sounded as if her life had been more difficult recently. I am so sorry she felt she couldn't carry on.

This has been the worst news in a long while. I Particularly want to echo Smudgie's words. My own family has known a complicated death or two and the "coming to terms" can be immensely difficult and require great courage and commitment. I pray that Jlg's family with find that courage and commitment in their own hearts.

I am so shocked and saddened by the news. jlg and I were roommates at a long-ago shipmeet in Colorado. I enjoyed her company, and as I became more and more involved on the boards, looked forward to her posts. She could be funny, challenging, thoughtful and thought-provoking. I have missed her these last several months of her absence from the ship and am so sad to know that she is gone. May she be at rest. May light perpetual shine upon her.

I can't connect what Rook said about the tragic circumstances of jlg's death, with the style of her many postings here. Which IIRC were enlightening, witty and positive. I trust the latter represents the real person and that she will be judged at least as much for being that person. May she rest in peace and rise in glory. [Votive] [Votive] [Overused]

She was a friend to me when I needed one, and even after I stopped visiting the Ship, she checked in periodically as circumstances in my life changed. In person, as online, she brooked no bullshit. I'm sad that she felt so alone in her trouble, and I'll miss her presence in my life.
