Never made a bad choice Jana? Your lucky! And one of kind.
Yes, because by pointing out her mistake that ultimately cost her her life (not even judging her as a person, just saying she made two horrible mistakes) is equivalent to me saying 'I'm perfect, I have never made a bad choice in my life'... though I have never went 90 through a city road, and I have never drove drunk.

Oh and I do feel for her family and friends. Its something that could have been prevented.

I don't like to hear about anyone getting hurt, but this young girl broke several laws without any regard for the consequences. I hope that others learn from this girl's mistakes. I am just so grateful that she didn't kill someone else. Any of our relatives could have been on that street when she did this.

Exactly why Ive gotten called out about. She should have known better than to make these mistakes/break these laws. and from what I read didnt the engine dislodge from her car and hit an SUV, the owner of the SUV is lucky they were not in their vehicle at the time, depending on where the engine hit it..

This is a news site, not a memorial page. The article was written objectively as are my comments. If you can't handle that maybe you should stay off this page.

This news is getting pretty old, so can't we go on to another subject ??
The young lady chose the way she wanted to live, so there is no reason why we should still cry over her stupid mistake.
I am just glad she did not hurt someone in my family.

Seriously people! Enough already! Yea she made a bad choice but you don't know the cause behind it, don't tell me that you never got behind the wheel and drove really fast because you were angry!!!!! Her family and friends are still mourning over her so I think you should ALL let her rest in peace. What if that was your daughter, sister, best friend, I know alot of her friends and they are all hurt that you people could be so heartless. STOP already and stop acting like you never made a mistake stop acting like your better then everyone. RIP Jen, you will be missed and you will always be loved, you are thought about every minute of the day.........

Im 15 years old. I just turned 13 a few months before jennifer passed away. I didnt read all the comments but i know one thing jennifer didnt intend to hurt herself. Yes i agree she made a big mistake. Most of you guy dont even know the whole story. After investigator had looked at camera and viedo tapes through des monies they were begaining to think jenn was being chanced. so before you run your mouth know the facts please and yes she was drinking that night and did dive. Jennifer was a great girl. She has been and will always be my role model. Love you jenn.
