Jenna Marie Jackson, age 28, of Philadelphia died suddenly on August 27,2021. She was born at Delaware County Memorial Hospital on May 17, 1993 to her loving parents Wayne and Dawn Jackson.
“Jen”, as a lot of people called her, was raised in the Roxborough section of the city. She attended Immaculate Heart of Mary School from first through 8th grade; Hallahan High School freshman through junior years; and was ultimately a 2011 graduate of Roxborough high school. Jenna was popular with her classmates and beloved by teachers and school administration alike. She was so well liked that the secretaries would get her out of class to come work in the office. Although brief, Jenna truly enjoyed her time at Roxborough High.
Jenna’s favorite extra curricular activities were participating in CYO volleyball and cheerleading. Jenna was a member of the SKYY All Star Cheer leading program located in Manayunk from 2009-2011. She also served as a coach and mentor for the younger girls in the cheer program.
As a child Jenna had a great sense of humor and loved to make her friends and family laugh. She would perform comedy skits and make funny faces that were hysterical. She could make you laugh till you cried.
