I am too new a member to have known her, but I can recognize a tragedy here.

There's got to be a way we can learn from this and maybe help another person before the bad ending.

Oh no! I'm just now learning about this tragedy. Too sad!!

Like many others have said, my husband and I were just talking about her not more than 4 days ago. What an eerie feeling. Just heartbreaking.

Since it had been a couple of years since she "took a break", we had hoped she was just too busy for the Internet anymore. I imagined her swirling between website projects and charities and marketing jobs and boasting about her former modeling career; not fearing homelessness.

Jen and I first met back when she was still with Superboat. She saw I had a Boat racing TV email list and -- with her fast thinking mind -- wanted to see if I would agree to a joint venture with her. She had such a great marketing savvy. Probably why she did so well with helping charities secure donations.

It is crushing to think that, with all that energy, she could not shake those grey clouds away.

Not long afterward, I lost contact with Jen. That's when I learned she and John weren't together anymore. A few months went by and I saw her posting on OSO with a new name and a new outlook on life.

She was such a fireball, but I had no idea how tormented she was until that infamous night. That was certainly a cry for help, but when someone is struggling with depression, what can anyone on the outside really do? I've been closely involved with the plight of depression, and it is nearly impossible to break thru that barrier if you aren't invited.


So full of energy. She had so much to offer.

Rest in Peace, Lady Sunseeker Jen.

This has caused me a lot of thought.

Jen was so active on behalf of others, especially charity. I am a fund-raiser by profession. I meet people like her all the time. It's great.

But what happens when the community loses someone who was a giver?

The rest of us have to step up to the plate and do something.
I'm already a fund-raiser, what can I do?

I have applied for, and been accepted to serve on our local Rescue Mental Health Services board. Hopefully I can help support this organization and it's mission to help others in the same place that Jen was in.

I encourage you to find a way to continue Jen's legacy of service to others in some way as well. If not for Jen, for someone else that you know helped make this a better place before they passed.

Thanks for listening.

No. Not big of me.
I'm doing it because it helps me with MY need to do something. Anything.
It helps keep me from feeling powerless.

If it helps somebody else, that's a bonus.
But there's obviously a need for this kind of crisis mental health service, maybe I can help it grow in my area.

All I am giving up is a little time once in a while.

The only reason that I mentioned it was so that friends of Jen's will know that she is still influencing people to help others.

And maybe one or two OSO members will do it too.
