Jennifer Sue Cohen, 58, born May 12, 1960, passed away peacefully in her sleep Oct. 26, 2018 in Marietta, Ga. after a long, courageous battle with cancer.
Jenni was born and raised in Orlando, Fla., and was a resident of St. Petersburg, Fla., who recently moved to Atlanta, Ga., to be with family. Jenni lived life the way she wanted, independent, empowered, and a rebel with a cause. She was a frontline advocate for women, the poor, and the LGBTQ community. She always was a caretaker to many friends, strangers, and animals when they were in need. She fought until the end and we will miss her greatly.
She is survived by her father, Meredith Cohen; her siblings: Robert (Karen), Wendy, and Art (Liz) Cohen; her nieces and nephews: Ashley (Daniel) Cavallo, Ben (Abi) Cohen, and Isaac and Sam Cohen; and her grandnephew and grandniece, Lawson and Olivia Cavallo. Jenni’s final months were made special by the love and support of her family, friends and colleagues. In her final days, she was surrounded by family and loved ones, as well as by the caring members of the Weinstein Hospice team.
