Jennifer Friedrich 1/20/72-7/6/24

On the evening of July 6th, 2024, Jennifer took her last breath after a long and hard journey with rapidly metastasizing colon cancer; while comforted by family members at her home in Bremerton, Washington. She was 52 years old. 

Having unexpectedly lost her husband in 2014, Jennifer dedicated the latter part of her life to self-improvement and owning her career ambitions alongside being a loving mother. She returned to school and achieved a degree in Accounting and found professional success through her ambitions.

She was first diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in the Spring of 2019. Not a stranger to adversity, she continued to work and support her family as best as she could. She fought hard through various treatments and procedures and had no evidence of disease as of the Winter of 2020. In 2022, a new metastasis was found in her abdomen and she was diagnosed with recurrent stage 4 cancer. From that day, with her unwavering spirit, she has fought to live and love as long as she could.
