    Whenever I needed help or had a question no one else could answer at Daytona State, Jean was always there to help and always had the answer. She was one of the best managers I ever met, and she gladly shared her wisdom. Her goodness is still in my heart, and the delight her artwork gave me is a wonderful and treasured memory. I know she is at peace.

    Jean was a bright light and a kind soul who made a difference in the life of her colleagues and the students she touched everyday. We will miss her, but heaven has another light to guide us. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
