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.
