  1. Jenifer, you were, and always will be, a beacon of hope, adventure, charity, and achievement. We will miss you dearly.

  2. Dear Williamson family, No words will ever ease your pain, but please know you have much love and comfort with you during this hard time, from your friends and family. I am so sorry for the tragic loss of your precious Jennifer. With deepest sympathy, Lynn Ketner

  3. We are truly sorry for your loss. We are servers at Coco\’s Rest on PCH. She was our regular customer and she will surely be missed. May God bless you during this time of loss and be a comfort to you.

  4. To the Williams family; I am so sorry for your loss. Jenifer and I knew each other since grade 7, remained friends throughout high school, and easily rekindled our friendship when we met again at our 10 yr. high school reunion. I recall her selflessness, her spirituality, her conviction, passion, intelligence and sense of purpose. Although we are the same age, she always seemed mature beyond her years. Ten years ago, nearly to the day, I asked her to read a religious book that I thought was significant and important. She declined, politely explaining that she didn\’t want to waste valuable time with something about which she had no conviction. At the time I didn\’t understand. It seems that somehow she knew how precious her time was, and didn\’t want to waste it on something she didn\’t believe in. I\’m not sure if she attended her 20 yr. reunion in June, if she did, it\’s my biggest regret that I missed an opportunity to see her. I will fondly remember her. May her spirit remain with and comfort you. John Phillips

  5. To Jenifer\’s family: Please accept my heartfelt condolences on Jenifer\’s passing I attended school with her (a grade behind) from Towers Elementary through West High School. I remember her as being intelligent, interested in many things and a very kind person with a ready smile. This earthly world has lost a very special individual far too soon. May your memories of Jenifer bring you happiness. And may God bless you with His peace and comfort in the months and years to come.

  6. Jenifer was a special person who loved the natural world around her so much that she had to become a participant rather than just a delighted observer. She loved the mountains, the streams, the fish and the creatures that live in those wild, but beautiful places. We flyfished the streams and talked of our dreams. But Jenifer took it to another level. Like the seagull and the eagle, she wanted to see the earth from above, soar through the clouds, and view the beauty below . She took the opportunity to act on her dreams and live in the sky, as only a few of God\’s creatures can do. I could not fly with her, but I admired her determination and her courage to follow her heart. In my own mind I now see her soaring far above us all, and the view is astounding.

  7. It is so difficult to find the right words to convey my shock and sadness at the loss of Jenifer. It is horrible that a tragic accident cut short the life of such a healthy, vibrant, intelligent, artistic, and kind young woman. I am an acquaintance fo Jenifer. Although I have only known her a short time, I will never forget her beautiful blue eyes, her strength and confidence, and her gentle, polite, and thoughtful personality. My sympathy goes out to you. Sincerely, Linda Jacobsen

  8. My family and I send our prayers and love to the Williamson Family, I attended school with jennifer all during junior high and high school. We played soccer together in high school, she always had a wonderful smile on her face and a cheerful greeting for all her friends. She will be missed by all the people that she has touched in her life. With deepest sympaty, Erin Clark and Family.

  9. Jenifer and I had known each other since meeting on the beach in the summer of 1990. We dated a short time, attended Air Force ROTC at UCLA for an even shorter time. We had kept in touch sporadically over the years and I still considered us friends. I hadn\’t spoken to Jen in a few years until she looked me up a few months ago. She came over one night and we talked for hours about our lives and where they were headed. We attempted several times since then to hook up again and talk but timing always seemed to be a problem. However, one night Jen called up and said she was free and would come over to talk. Again we caught up on current events and where we wanted to go in life. Sadly that would be the last time I got to talk to her. A week later to the day this tragic accident occurred. One thing though was constant in Jenifer’s life. She loved to fly. I can only find peace in knowing she passed doing what she loved. She had one of the truest hearts of any person I met. I know she has now accepted her final set of wings from God and is flying over us from above protecting and looking over us. God Bless. To Jenifer’s family I can not express enough my heart felt sorrow for your loss. Jen loved all of you very much.

  10. I\’d like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious daughter. May God\’s Love and Mercy see you through this very difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely, Maria

  11. Our heartfelt sympathy to the Williamson family. In our association with Bob, we know that he has imbued in his children the love all people, the appreciation of life, and the thirst of the natural wonders of the outdoors. Jennifer certainly lived that life to the fullest and will be greatly missed, but we take comfort in the fact that she has gone to a better place.

  12. I remember her as being a perpetualy sweet person who would drop by our classroom in the afternoons after the children had departed for the day, this being at Banneker Special Education Center.The children in our class were assigned to another physical education teacher actualy. Her visiting our room, about as far away from her primary work station as possible, was merely a friendly connection with us. Several adults worked with the children in our room, and I cannot attest to having known Jenifer as well as a couple of my fellow classroom staff members have, however I was always impressed with her. She and I had spoken about her flying, and I admired her for it. Indeed, the impression that I had of Jenifer was that this was a very bright and exciting individual that carried herself with a friendly quiet and dignified demeanor. I had the feeling that she was someone that would always find her way in life. Naturaly, I was shocked and saddened upon returning to work this school year, to find the notice of her passing. I am thankful that this electronic guestbook is available, as my discovery of the accident and memorial service was not until some time after the events. This will provide me with some element of closure. I would like to express my sincere sympathy to your family for your loss.
