Jennifer Rebecca Pelletier
January 8, 1973 – November 6, 2022
Beloved Daughter, Sister, Teacher, and Aunt
On Sunday, the 6th of November, Jennifer Rebecca Pelletier finished her two-and-a-half-year battle with cancer, dying peacefully among close friends and family.
Born on the 8th of January 1973 to Chuck and Pat Pelletier in Fort Worth, TX, Jennifer dedicated her entire adult life to the pursuit of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness in Catholic Education. With a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature, and a Master’s Degree in Catholic Education, both from the University of Dallas, Jennifer was a natural teacher and a gifted administrator. Serving in various roles in Catholic Education, from teacher, to School President, and finally as the Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Fort Worth, TX, Jennifer worked tirelessly towards one goal: Making Saints of Students.
Jennifer’s love, dedication, and generosity also extended to her nieces and nephews, who she spoiled rotten at every opportunity. She was well known among her friends and family as the most thoughtful gift-giver, and she always gave freely of her time, treasure, and affections. She gracefully and gratefully endured incredible suffering and hardship in her last two-and-a-half years, suffering that she willingly united to Christ’s, offering up her pain and the indignities of cancer for the furtherance of His Grace in the world.
Jennifer is survived by her mother Pat, sister Lisa and husband Randy, brothers Charles, John and wife Kathleen, and Jim and wife Stacie, 17 nieces and nephews, 5 grand-nieces and nephews, a myriad of Godchildren, and her dearest earthly love, Henry the Australian Shepherd.
