Jeanne lived her life fully. Her energy, creativity, generosity and sense of adventure took her all over the world, led her to meet life-long friends, and to launch an amazing career at the Food Marketing Institute in Washington, D.C. In her position she took on CEO’s and board members to successfully fight for issues close to her heart such as sustainability and the environment. Jeanne mentored dozens of young people throughout her life and rejoiced in their successes.
Jeanne never met an adventure she didn’t love. She was a force to be reckoned with and embraced life with her entire being. She had a beautiful sense of style and flair; she always looked elegant and upbeat. She loved to hike, and she loved the La Sal Mountains where she and David built a home. She loved all cultures and people.
More than anything, Jeanne treasured her large extended family and friends, and she treasured Southern Utah. She often said sandstone and red rocks flowed through her veins.
Together, Jeanne and David, and oftentimes, Max, hiked hundreds of red rock canyons and high mountain peaks. Their home was always open to friends and family. They considered Max’s friends their sons. Jeanne was incredibly devoted to her family and took excellent care of Uncle Ozzie and her parents as they aged.
An amazing wife, mom, sister, daughter, aunt, friend and colleague, Jeanne changed lives and made the world a kinder, more beautiful and magical place.
Jeanne leaves behind her devoted husband, David, and the light of her life, Max, as well as sisters Joni and Donna. She also has countless family and friends who love and adore her.
