Service Time: 1:00 pm
Service Location: Pilgrim Lutheran Church- 3257 E University Dr., Mesa, AZ 85213

Jennifer Lynn Myers, loving mother, daughter, and friend was called to her eternal rest on January 31, 2022.  She was born in Mesa, AZ on July 5th, 1985, and hit the ground running.  She attended Pilgrim Lutheran School and went on to graduate from Red Mountain High School here in Mesa.  Jennifer received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Musical/Performing Arts from Drake University in Des Moines, IA with Distinction.

Jennifer was a devout Christian and served her Lord throughout her short life.  She was very active in her church, working with both youths and adults.  She enjoyed working with the ChrisTeens, Jr. Choir and headed up the Drama Club for the school as well as singing and helping wherever she was needed.

Along with her work at Pilgrim as a teacher and mentor, Jennifer worked tirelessly at Gilbert Parks and Recreation, Dinner Detectives and Silver Star Theater simultaneously.  To say Jennifer was an active soul would be an understatement!  Jennifer devoted her life to sharing her wonderful talents and love for singing, dancing, and performing with anyone and everyone.  She helped many young people push their fears aside and take that leap of faith into the world of performing.  Jennifer loved working with children in her many scenarios of life and held a special place in her heart for each of them.  Jenn, as she was known by all, was also the Gilbert Special Olympics cheer coach, taking them to several successful competitions and strongly believing in their motto of “Seeing the Ability in Disability”.

Jennifer is survived by her son, Charlie, her sister, Heather Vickers, her brother, Kevin, her mother, Debbie, her Aunts (Kathy, Edie and Bea), her Uncles (Mark, David and Richard), cousins, nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her father, Allen, and her beloved “Mom-mom”, Anna May.

Jennifer loved what she did, and it showed!  Her co-workers, supervisors, and parents of her students at every venue she served, have expressed their love and admiration for what she did and who she was.  “Jenn was forever singing, dancing, and smiling, and always had time to say hi to my kids whether they were in class or just passing by in the hallway”.  Jennifer was loved and respected by children and adults alike.  She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

A celebration of life will be held on March 12, 2022 at 1:00 PM at Pilgrim Lutheran Church- 3257 E. University Dr., Mesa 85213.

    Heavenly Father, the giver and sustainer of life, thank you for Jennifer. Thank you for her life. Thank you for Jesus’ redemptive work and that Jennifer is now experiencing the complete fulfillment of the work you started and promised to complete in her; justification, sanctification, and now perfect glorification with you. May this deep loss and pain draw us nearer to you. May your protection, provision, and peace comfort Charlie, Debbie, and all of Jenn’s family and friends. May sweet memories of her, flood hearts and minds and bring tears and smiles as we remember her, and may the work she did here to honor you be remembered for your glory. We love you and thank you and praise you for the eternal hope we have in Jesus Christ, and may we cling to and rejoice in those promises. In Jesus’ merciful name, amen.

  • Jenn, I didn’t get to say Goodbye so these will be my last words to you. Thank you for letting me volunteer on your drama productions. Our daughter got to participate in your last two productions, and you did a wonderful job with all the children. Shopping for flowers on performance day, was something Elliot and I enjoyed doing for both of you. Your creativity was fun and exciting, your energy, magnetic. Jenn you were spectacular in every way, a spirit of performance. You departed during the New Moon, a phase of new beginnings. On that day God aligned the sun, the moon, and the earth to give you the universe as your stage one last time. The sun shined like a spot light, and when the night came the sky curtain dropped on that moonless night. That night, I lite a candle in your memory, as a reminder that you are a child of God, a light in the darkness. You will always shine in our hearts and memory. Your contribution to our church and school is unmeasurable, and my family and I will miss you dearly.

  • It was such a pleasure to work with Jenn at the Freestone Recreation Center. She always brought so much happiness and energy to the facility when she would come in. She will be greatly missed.

  • Michelle Dulansky

    I had the honor and privilege of coaching Special Olympics Cheer with Jenn. Her energy, commitment and love for her athletes and students she taught was truly inspiring. I still can’t wrap my head around that the lord has called her home. The world here will be a little dimmer without her in it. She loved her family big, gave of herself to her community and her craft big. Jenn embodied passion in all she did. I pray that her son Charlie and her family know how much she truly loved them and talked about them all the time. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • Much love to this family – which includes so many members of the community. Jenn was multi talented and her absence has created a large void in the world.

  • Thank you Jenn for all that you gave to our community. My heart goes out to Charlie and your family. I will always remember you as dressed up as Bridget from Trolls in a disco pantsuit and rainbow hair roller skating down the parade route at the Gilbert Days Parade. We love you and will always miss you.

  • My dearest daughter,
    how do I say goodbye to someone who meant the world to me? You were the light of my life, the positive force in a sometimes negative world, a shining star whose light was gone way too soon! You lived life almost as if you knew you had a very short time to spread as much love of music, of dance, of love itself, as fast and as far as you could. Rest in peace my dear, in the arms of your loving Savior. I will give hugs to Charlie from you every day until we meet again in heaven. Well done thou good and faithful servant!

  • Oh, Dearest Debbie,

    And the athletes of SOAZ GILBERT WILDCATS CHEERLEADING TEAM

  • Jenn was my roommate in college, and a friend in the theatre program. We had a lot of fun, silly times, and some nice heart to hearts. I am glad that I had a chance to get to know her on a deeper level. Our school didn’t have much of a dance program, but through her, I got more familiar with dance, which has helped me tremendously over the years. Her joy and passion encouraged me to keep building my dance skills. Throughout the years we would occasionally keep in touch, and was great to see her clearly thriving in her life and work. We even connected through post-college friends when she went to a Comedy Sportz show.

    You’ve been on my heart, Jenn. I am sorry we lost touch recently, but thank you for being a part of my life. Rest Peacefully, friend.

  • Jeannette Aswege

    Debbie and Charlie you are in our thoughts and prayers. We will be unable to attend the services for Jenn but we will be praying for you. She will be dearly missed. God needed an amazing angel to help in heaven. Sending love.
    The Aswege Family

  • Jennifer… you’ve always been such a light. From the first day I met you at cheer tryouts, over 20 years ago, to the days of you teaching my youngest daughter’s classes at the Rec center… you’ve played a positive role in my life. Whoever has been fortunate enough to know you is truly missing your smile these days… but we know you’re in a better place. Your light continues to shine through your son. May you Rest In Peace. With love, Alexis Cain
