February 18th, 2016 our Beautiful Jenna Rose Mickelson, full of grace and song entered heaven peacefully as she was enveloped in a lavender, gold and rainbow cocoon in her Mother Lisa’s Arms. Jenna was born March 31st, 1991 during Passover, and on Easter Day. The angels surely serenaded Jenna the day she was born. God placed Jenna right in the center, sandwiched between two loving sisters that adored her, Amanda and Hayley. Jenna was always a Daddy’s little girl who lit up like the sun when Daddy (Tom) entered the room. Jenna’s family always felt like Jenna was a princess, and were honored to be in her presence. Jenna’s giggle, and love language can only be described as ” supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” extraordinary!
Jenna had an amazing life, although she had special needs, with challenges she faced every moment, she was a trooper throughout everything, and in all circumstances, she radiated overflowing unconditional love to all. Throughout Jenna’s journey she was very social and enjoyed being around people, and especially loved babies, and young children. Jenna loved her pups Buddy and Casper. She enjoyed school and homeschooling, and she always worked hard during all of her therapies which included Music (Jenna loved music), OT, PT, & Speech. She especially loved swimming with her Daddy. She also loved taking walks near the horse ranch with her Mom.
Jenna was involved with the miraculous finding of the Rett Syndrome gene, and continues to inspire the medical community regarding finding a cure. Jenna lived at home with her family who doted on her, and kissed her all the time, and will miss her sweetness, but truly know she is free now, and is in heaven. Jenna also had Caregivers and Nurses, who contributed to Jenna’s care, to help make Jenna’s world extra lovely at home. Jenna also had lots of family, and friends that loved her dearly. All who knew Jenna felt they were touched by an angel. Jenna will be forever in all of our hearts!
