I remember being very impressed with her courage in June 1999.
She flew to Huntington Beach, California while quite pregnant with Alex. Sean and Molly & Megan came, too of course.
She seemed calm and happy.
While I was gone on a honeymoon, she stayed at our place with her family, and this arrangement was great.
Look how pretty she looks in this photo!🥰

My deepest condolences to the Duratz family. Jill was my best friend as soon as we met when we were 9 yrs old. The world has lost an Angel, but Heaven has gained the Greatest one...

I am still in shock. I am so sorry to all Jill's friends and loved ones. My world just won't be the same. Miss you, Jill, wish we had gotten in one more bonfire...

Jill was my best friend. All through high school and into college, we shared so many memories and adventures. She had an infectious laugh and a twinkle in her eye that never went away. She had a personality like sunshine. She never missed an opportunity to try something new or go above and beyond to help someone in need. To try to capture her essence in these few short sentences doesn't do her justice. Jill, our Golden One, sails on to a better land beneath a brighter sky.
