Jade graduated from Martinsville High School in 1998 where she was active in sports that included gymnastics, softball, cheerleading, and weight lifting.

She was a graduate of Harrison College and worked as a registered nurse and Clinic Manager at the Neuroscience Center in Indianapolis.

Jade enjoyed reading, watching movies, celebrating holidays, especially Halloween.  She was a fan of all music and always had a new favorite song.

Her greatest passion above all was spending her time with her family.  She rarely missed any of her children’s sporting events and could always be heard cheering them on.  Family vacations were special and she always cherished them.  She was the Mama Bear and family was the center of her heart.  Her presence will always be here and she will be missed forever.

The family requests that any memorial contributions be made to the American Cancer Society in Jade’s name.
