    I met Jen during our junior year at Cornell, when I started waitressing some evenings at Little Joe’s, an Italian eatery in college town. I felt a bit intimidated on my first day, as the restaurant was a loud, bustling place, but that changed quickly...  more

    I wanted to share this link from the Compass Center for Women and Families. They recently honored Jennifer by introducing the Jennifer Dubow Volunteer of the Year award. Here are more details about their Empowering Journeys luncheon and the first...  more

    I went to High School with Jen. We reconnected somewhat online. I wish we had reconnected more. There were many days back in High School that Jen helped to make better and brighter for me. She was a wonderful listener, had the best advice, was my...  more

    There are few occasions when you meet a person who strengthens and enlightens the world around her by her presence. When I moved to Austin in 2012 and became sick with a terrible flu, Jen was the only one who volunteered to come to my apartment with...  more

    I first met Jen in 2005 during a Summer school prep session for UNC Kenan-Flagler business school. We were both there as recovering liberal arts majors with no formal backgrounds to learn the basics.

    Jen and I hit it off immediately over our mutual...  more

    Jen had the sunniest smile and disposition in our class. She was one of the few women who had no inhibitions and engaged with people from all backgrounds and race. And she was the one who always reached out. People like her are rare and she has left a void.

    I have been trying to remember the exact moment that Jen and I became friends but I can't place it. But from the time I can remember, I remember Jen as a close friend. It had to be instantaneous. I was a misfit in business school and she embraced me and...  more

    What I remember most is her shining Neshama. She had a kind, generous spirit that shone though.

    My family moved to Durham in 2014. It was a transition as we moved from a large city. My daughter was 10 at the time and our funny french bulldog, Rose, was 4. During our walks around the neighborhood we met Jen. From day one it was like we had known...  more

    Jen was an amazing woman who I was lucky to have the opportunity to meet almost immediately after moving back to Austin. She made a lasting impact in the community through her good works, such as helping create a "Shabbat Next Door" community...  more

    I met Jen in 2008 through the Jewish community in Raleigh-Durham. I'll always remember hanging at Jen's apartment in Chapel Hill for Shabbats or birthday celebrations. I used to tease Jen about feeding her dogs a very special raw food diet, but that...  more

    Similar to Janine, I worked with Jen back in the 2007-2008 timeframe at IBM. Her first words to me were "I'm a perfectionist. You'll learn that quickly working with me." But all that meant was that, in a place often saddled with people doing the bare...  more

    I worked with Jen in IBM around 2007. Jen was so full of life: her contagious smile and laugh, her stories, and her lovable dogs. I have so many great memories of Jen. She came to my baby shower - 12 hours away from Chapel Hill, and it was such a...  more

    I worked with her back at IBM I believe it was 2008 or so. She was great to work with so energetic, full of ideas. We also had a lot of fun when going to events. I remember when she moved to Austin for a bit. I think that was the last time I saw her when...  more

    I met Jennifer soon after I moved to Durham at a networking event. She joined my hiking group and we went only weekly walks for many months. I am devastated that she has left us. I will think of her everytime I'm at Eno or walking the Al Buehler trail....  more

    Jen and I met in 2015. I don't even remember the getting to know her, it just feels like we were instantly good friends. As many have shared, Jen was so bright and so insightful and had such a beautiful smile (those dimples!!). When my husband was in the...  more

    Jen had a beautiful smile, a brilliant mind, and a kind heart. I just wish she could have seen herself as I, and I am sure many others, did. I met her initially at a networking event, but we quickly bonded over dogs, walks in nature and exploration of...  more

    This is Jennifer Moore (Maria Adams is an alias to hide from Facebook). Day's tribute to Jennifer rings very true for me. I have known her since 2007 and we worked together at IBM. She was so supportive and caring to me as the new person on the team. She...  more

    I met Jennifer a little over a year ago after moving to Durham. She responded to a post I had written on a regional networking list serve and invited me to coffee -- I think we ended up talking for about 2.5 hours. In a short time, she thoughtfully...  more

    I met Jennifer earlier this year through a local group for women business owners. She was a kind, generous, compassionate, and intelligent person and someone I knew I could turn to for solid advice. I'm terribly saddened about this news and send...  more

    I met Jen freshman year at college through our mutual friend, Gail (her story is below). One word that describes Jen, which is part of what makes this news so hard to believe: present. Jen was always present, and she had a very strong, very memorable...  more

    I met Jennifer in a fb group a couple of years ago or so. The second she showed up, I friended her. I could see she was someone I wanted to know. She was a fierce friend. She was always the first person to reach out with support or applause. If I...  more

    I met Jen when we both went to interview with Anderson consulting when we were in college. We met during the day and then went out for dinner after and had the best time. We kept in touch and both ended up working there together the next fall. She was...  more

    I also met Jennifer through the women's group that Jan mentioned. She came to a potluck on my porch and later came over to swim. We talked about how we just liked to hang out, not necessarily around an activity. I'm retired and have plenty of free time....  more

    I first met Jennifer in April, 2019. She had replied to a message I'd posted on an online forum about a local women's group. Jen seemed to be emerging from a period of isolation, making efforts to get out and about and to engage with others again. It was...  more

    I will always remember Jen's love of volleyball and reading. She had a huge smile, a great laugh, and an unbelievable memory. Jen, I hope you are relaxing at peace above us with a great book in your hand. Xo

    Jen and I met in the summer of 1986 as first year campers at Camp Watitoh. We immediately connected once realizing we shared the same (August 2) birthday. We had twin dimples and also shared a passion for volleyball (she had a killer serve!). We spent...  more

      Leah Harris Jen and I were also an Aug 2 birthday, and we also talked about having dimples. Wow! This makes me smile.

    I met Jen freshman year of Cornell, in 1992. I was walking on North Campus trying to find my Psych 101 class. I asked a girl nearby - "Do you know where Bailey Hall is?" It was the enormous building directly in front of me. The girl was Jen - she...  more

      Day Howell Your words allow me to know her better. Thank you. I can see every single image you speak of. They make me smile, thinking of her the way you describe. A friend said this to me the other day "The greater the Light, the greater the Dark." Jennifer is a...  more

      Gail Deutsch Thank you very much. I am so glad they made you smile. I knew her when her light shone particularly bright. I really like that idea of her as a great Light shining from a different perspective now

      Jan Bond Many thanks for the contributions from those of you who knew Jennifer in healthier and happier times. For friends far away who may have been wondering: Jennifer told me that she had largely given up use of social media and even disliked checking email or...  more

      Karen Schnelwar This is really beautiful, Gail. A spot-on portrait of a good soul and a one-of-a-kind.
