Jenna was a very special person. She had a great talent of bringing the best of everyone to the surface. How she loved to make people smile and laugh, even at her own expense.In celebration of Jenna's wonderful life we are going to be giving her a send off party, the way Jenna would have liked it; surrounded by good friends and family, music, food, dancing and lots of laughs. We would like to invite everyone that knew Jenna or her family to participate. It would mean a lot to have such a large gathering of energy reaching out to her. We are planning this on August 18th here in St George, UT. If you can make it please RSVP either by calling 435 652-4340 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org If you can not make it please give her a happy thought or remember a time she made you smile. We are also putting together a remembrance book for the boys.I know a lot of Jenna's classmates and friends have left messages on this site and I hope they will read this and contact me regarding the celebration.If you have a story about Jenna or comments about what she was like or just a photo you have tucked away some where, would you please send it to us. This way Schyler and Kaiden will get to know their mother and remember her through all of our eyes and hearts.
I just wanted to let Jenna and Ethan's family know that we are still thinking about you all. Thanks to the Measom family for giving us "the blue bracelets", we are wearing them everyday. I noticed that there have been over 30,00 visitors to your website, but just over 6,000 people have signed the "fetal law petition". So if you are reading this go to the home page, scroll to the bottom, and sign the petition in honor of ETHAN! We are praying for your family.
With regret, not all people that visit this web site, can sign the petition. If you do not live in N.C. you can not sign it. It is very frustrating knowing what happened to Jenna and Ethen, and that we cannot help make sure this person or persons are held acountable for 2 murders, by signing the petition, and letting people hear our voice in saying that they need to change this law. God knows that we all here in Utah, would love to FRY this person or persons, and see justice served! But trust me when I say that WE WOULD IF WE COULD! They were very special to us all, and we pray that the bill will pass and that JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED!
Kevin I truly feel your pain. Jenna is such a beautiful child to have been taken from us. My prayers are with you daily and know that words cont explain the pain I feel for you and your family.This will not be forgotten ever and justice will be found. I am very soory that it took this for me to find you and hope in your heart you will forgive me and contact me. You will ALWAYS be a brother to me.
Kevin, Thinking about you and your family. Everday I wear the wristband and say a prayer that they'll find this sick person that took Jenna away from you all. This website is wonderful, it must bring you so much comfort. We will spread the word for as long as it takes.
Timmy, We are here for you and are more than willing to help you in any way possible. We both love you and the boys very much. Please keep in touch with us and let us know if there is anything we can do.Love,Dusty and Kristy Simpson
You had a very beautiful wife, daughter, and mother. To think someone like Jenna will not be able to grace the world with her prescence is a travesty. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
ever since this has happened i wanted to express my deepest sympathys to you and your family and when i read the article in the paper this morning and it gave this website i was finally able to do so. i also get up and deliver newspapers in the morning i have delivered the N&O for 13 years now. the first 6 were right where this sick #$%$### murdered your daughter and the last 7 have been out where i live off highway 50 near the turner farms developments.in this sick world we live i have encounted a few things on my routes that i do not tell my wife about so she does not worry more than she already does, but obviously nothing in comparison to what you are going through.Sir, i do not know if you have heard about the Stephanie Bennet case that happened here a few years back but i worked with her sister Dee at Sprint pcs and i remember the tears we shed for her and it took the police a couple of years to catch that piece of scum[only for him to commit suicide in jail]i pray for you and your family that through this website you are able to find this despicle person and see justice served. i wish i was still on the old route for just that one fateful night in june because if i would have seen somebody do this your daughter i would be in jail today for murder myself. What posseses some one to take someones life over a little bit of money i cant even fathom it. i have 3 daughters of my own one is married and lives in texas and the other 2 with me in garner and they are the joys of my life and if this happened to one of them i would react the same way you are sir nothing would stop me from finding out who did this and you keep going and with the power of Jesus Christ and all the people in the entire country praying for you i know good things will happen. God Bless you and your family Sincerely, Bob Schaefer

please remember jenna has a mother(lorann) that is hurting just as much as her husband and kevin. she misses her everyday as well!!
i miss jenna everyday more and more! the way she would make me laugh and everyone around her. the way she brightened up a room just by simply walking in. i miss all the times we would chat and seeing the boys. she loved them so much.she was like a daughter to me and i will never forget her!! my love to tim and the boys also her mother lor love you guys always i hope you know that!
jenna looked like a wonderful person with a heart of gold. i wish you all the luck on finding him. when i first heard about it on the tv i cried my eyes out. i am a preschool teacher and it hurts me to see kids get hurt.i hope he gets what he deserves. my heart goes out to you.
I just learned of this on Fox News. I am so terribly sorry. I have two daughters myself, ages 28 and 24. I have no idea how you are holding up. My wife and I would be so devastated that I have no idea how we could cope. My heart goes out to you and your family. The pictures show what a lovely, special person Jenna was. May God grace all of you, especially Jenna's husband and children.
I was watching Fox News and saw the piece they did for Jenna. My Heart goes out to her family and friends. I wanted to sign the petition but cannot as I don't reside in NC.However committed this senseless crime should be punished for taking 2 lives. You are in my prayers.
I can't imagine the depth of your pain. Why these monsters are on this earth is beyond me. Your daughter/wife was lovely, and reading things posted by people who knew and loved her makes me know that she was lovely inside as well. May God bless your family and help you through this impossible time. My family's prayers are with you.
My prayers go out to Jenna's family. She was so beautiful. I am a route carrier in North Idaho, and so many people do not realize what us carriers are out there doing.It seems like an easy job, but at times, it is frightening. I begin my route at 3am, and I deliver in the country,I am constantly wondering what will be in store for me each day. I have had a few frightening experiences as well, nothing like what Jenna has endured,we contend with drunk drivers, suspicious vehicles on the route,wildlife, snow storms,and just about anything else one can imagine possible, and we do not make a lot of money. For one to take the life of a young pregnant woman in such a cruel way, while she is out trying to support her children, is simply unimaginable, and I have prayed for justice for jenna and will continue to do so until the monster is caught.My deepest sympathy go to Jenna's family and friends....The jerk will be caught!!!
I did not know Jenna but her story has moved me very much. I check in often to your site to see how things are moving. I pray that her and Ethen's murderer is found. I will wear my bracelet until then. I signed the petition and have been passing the word to everyone I know. God bless you all.
I am very sorry for your loss of Jenna and Ethen. It is so great that your community can be a great support to your family at this time. I check this site almost daily hoping the have found the killer. I am truly sorry. I would to see some photos of the concert held on her and Ethen's behalf.I live to far away to attend. Take care, I hope someone is found soon and locked up forever!! How scarey to have him still on the loose.~Emily

I would just like to take a minute to tell her family how sorry i am. I hope they find the monster that did this to a beautiful mother, woman, sister, friend and everything else jenna was to those she knew her, I didnt know jenna but i know someone who is very close to her and i pray for jenna"s family everyday, hoping you guys can put an end to this horrible nightmare. Everybody that knows/knew JENNA will always have a empty place in there heart. Good Luck to her husband and family with the children.
What a terrible tragedy that this beautiful young woman and her unborn child was taken from us by a beast in human form! With every day in which this creature is not caught, the tragedy becomes more bitter. It is said that the killer is believed to be hispanic. His picture does not look like a hispanic. I have lived and traveled in Asia, and to me he looks like a southeast Asian - perhaps a Laotian or Cambodian, or perhaps a Hmong or a Burmese (Karen or Shan). We have colonies of some of these peoples in NC.
My heart goes out to you all.
My heart goes out to her children and her husband, and to her parents! I became a Grandma yesterday, My Grandson stole my heart the moment I saw his little face, I can't even begin to imagine the anguish her Mother must be feeling! You all are in my prayers! My deepest and most sincere condolences! Deborah A. Brown, San Bernardino, Ca.
To The Jenna's Family: I know at this time it is so hard for all of you.However GOD does not give us so much that we cannot bear.God will reveal so much real soon it will be a blessing to find out the truth, and we will I will always keep all of you in my prayers. The main thing is not to give up hope!!!!All my blessings.... Robin Moore
I'm so sorry for the pain and suffering your family is going through, words could never express how one feels in this situation. I know someone who was murdered June 2006 and nothing has ever been solved. It is by far one of the worst pains to ever experience knowing someone who's life is taken on such short notice with no closure. I will keep you in my thougths and pray for justice!visit www.leroyjernigan.commaybe you can keep that family in your thoughts too...
Dear Family: My deepest hearfelt sympathies and love to the Husband, Children, Parents, and all Family and Friends of this young woman who was murdered. My Heart aches along with yours.Psalm: 25:1- "To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul, O my God, in You I trust, Do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me, Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed; Those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed." I hope and pray this murderer is found. If not in this lifetime, God's Word still promises that every knee shall bow to Him on the judgement day. This person will be held accountable.
I met a grieving mother and father, grandmother and grandfather in a hotel lobby in LA. We spent some time together during which they shared their grief. My prayer was and is that all connected with this loss are supported by their loved ones and take some comfort in the knowledge that others are there and will be there to support them ...even complete strangers ....
Just wanted to let you know you know you and your family are always in prayers. I will never forget the last time I saw Jenna's beautiful smile. She is greatly missed. Once again you are all in thoughts and prayers daily. Ciara
I have been following Jenna's sad story since the beginning. I have thought and payed for her family everyday. I was reading about the person who they thought may have been the killer. I wondered if they asked the person who saw the killer or looked at the tapes again to compare. I just hope they figure this whole thing out soon. Also the new photo's are great!!!-Madisen (NY)
I pray and ask God to send strengh to everyone who has been affected. Thinking of you all often
I am so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine what your family is going through, just keep hope that the person who did this will be caught and punished. God Bless you all. Troy Porter, Yonkers, N.Y.
I am a mother of three young boys (7 almost 6 and 22 months) and I can not imagine how they and my husband could deal with something like that. I am so sorry I wish that the family had a chance to get to know Ethen. At least she and he are resting with God in eternity. I know that that is not much of a comfort but she is also watching over her other 2 boys and she and Ethen will be seen again someday. I can not imagine the pain that you are going through she was absolutely beautiful. I hope that they catch that low life scum bag.God be with all of you.Sarah
I watched this story on Americas Most Wanted tonight. I don't know Jenna or her family but I wanted to say that I am so sorry to hear of your loss and hope that they find whoever did this soon! My prayers are with your family and friends.Schenectady, NY
Dear Jenna family,I am not from your state but I heard about Jenna story on AMW.I live in Canada.I am sending you my deepest sympathies.I am also 30 weeks along in my pregnancy and seeing Jenna's story made me cry.I can't sign the fetal bill but I hope it passes because Ethen was indeed a senseless victim too.I just lost my mother 2 mths ago so I know some of the ache your heart is feelling right now.Jenna and Ethen are now watching over your family.I will pray that they catch this disgusting person who took 2 lives for no reason.Jenna was a beautiful person,she was only a yr older then me.God bless.
I also watched this story tonight on AMW. When I heard she was murdered on June 14th I felt this sadness. On June 14th I got to bring home my premature baby who had been in the hospital for 2 months and I kept thinking how horrible it was that I had to leave him at that hospital for so long. But I got to bring him home. I thought, I expierenced something so wonderful on the same day a young woman just like me was living her last minute. I didn't know her or her family but you will be in my prayers. I can't even begin to imagine the pain and sorrow your family is expierencing right now. Keep your heads up and lets pray that her and her unborn child's killer will be brought to justice. I pray that God will help us to understand why these things happen to innocent people and children. Love to you all
My deepest condolences on the loss of Jenna and Ethen. I saw your story on AMW and was very sadden at your loss. Jenna was a beautiful young lady with a beautiful family and should have had a long life ahead of her.I pray that their killer be brought to justice and punished for such a dispicable act of violence.God bless you and yours and know that the people of Southern California will be praying for you all!
I just wanted to express my deepest condolences to the whole family and all her friends. what happend to jenna is unthinkable. She is such a beauitful person, One day when they do find her killer i hope they give him just what he deserves, ( not to take another breath on this earth) Jenna stood no chance on that fatefulled morning nor did that baby, so why should this monster stand a chance to prove him self sorry! I am going to post this story out on my space so that many more people around the world can see this story, and hopefully bring this man to custody. Again im sorry for your loss and i pray that you have the chance to feel closer however possiable that may be!
Ny Condolences To Jenns's family & loved ones.I watched this on AMW last night and could not believe the heartless act That Coward did.Please know that Jenna is In good hands with our lord .God bless , Bonita
Im very sorry for your loss. Jenna and the baby are now with the lord. Just make it your mission to take good care of yourself and the babies she left behind. God Bless you.Tamara
My heart aches for you and your family. I am a pregnant woman who lives in Raleigh and frequents the farmers market near the crime scene. Although I didn't know her, I think of Jenna often. It tears my heart out to pass that place and know of the unspeakable wrong that happened there. I cannot fathom the pain that your family is going through. Although Jenna and Ethen are at peace, they should be here on earth bringing joy to your family.
My thoughts and prayers are with Jenna's family. I cannot imagine suffering such a great loss. She was so young and so beautiful, and I know she had so much love left to give. I believe to take a mother away from her child is the cruelest crime anyone could commit. I tried to sign the petition, but I could not because I am a resident of Alabama. I wish there was a way for people out of state to sign. I'm puzzled as to how the AMW lead didn't pan out. The guy was in NC at the time her life was taken and he is accused of harming other women. He looks exactly like the profile, so what does the height difference make? Please tell me the police are doing a thorough investigation & did get a DNA sample to compare to his DNA. Every lead is important, but this one gave me the creeps. Although I (along with everyone else) want the real killer to be prosecuted, these circumstances surrounding this guy's whereabouts are too many to ignore. I sincerely hope the police haven't ruled him out as a suspect. May God be with you & your family.
I am Jenna's grandmother (Oma) and Ethen's great grandmother. I watch this site several times every day because it makes me realize that although she is not physically here now, she is still influencing so many people. This really helps to see how many people care. I miss her and her smile and her laughter, but I am so proud of her as a person and what she did with her life and is continuing to do after her life. I am so proud of her mother, Lorann, (our daughter) her father, Kevin, and Tim, her husband, for how they are coping with this and working in a positive way to get through their grief. They are working to accomplish something through this tragedy that is positive and focusing on our great grandsons who will never know their mother, finding whoever was responsible for this crime and changing the law to recognize Ethen as a person. We hope everyone will work to keep this from happening to another family. Thanks to all of you for caring about our beautiful Jenna and our Ethen, whom we will never know.
I would like the family to know that my family is praying for you guys......
I just want to let the family members over in NC know that Jenna and Ethan's story is being recognized nationally. I live in Oregon with my husband and some of our fellow firefighters mentioned they saw the story on America's Most Wanted. We live on the border of Idaho and our entire family wear our bracelets every single day. People ask us what they are for, it is difficult to explain every time, but awareness is coming from the East coast the the West coast. People around the nation care for Jenna, Ethan, and all who were left behind. Please remember, there are several of us willing to help. Love you and miss you.
Hi you family does not know me but I am the cousin of jennas biological father. We for some reason just head this sad sad story. I just hope they find the truth and the person and make him pay for taking her life. I do remember Jenna as a child. I was just a child myself and I would play with her. I am shocked to hear this, what is this world comming to. I just want to say that my prayers are with your family and her poor children who will never know her.
As I read all the messages it makes me want to cry. I would like to pray for your family. Dear lord I come to you today and ask that you bring the man who did this to justice. Also lord please watch out for jenna's boys and help them understand what has happened to there mother. Im Jesus name amen. My heart goes out to your family.
