I worked with Jodi about 30 years ago at Deloitte and I still have fond memories after all of this time. She was bright, happy, positive, kind and the consummate professional. Thinking of David, Luke and Eli – wishing you comfort. She was a bright light in many people’s (and animals) lives.

David, Luke, and Eli,
How sad I am for you all with your loss. I was very blessed to get to meet Jodi last fall here in Texas at the Cherith at a ladies’ weekend gathering. Thank you, David, for sharing her with us then. It was such fun to spend time with her after having read about what a gift she was to Jane Anderson as revealed in her book, The Thread of Gold. Jane told me many times about Jodi and what good experiences they shared of faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I was privileged to enjoy fellowship with her also and now look forward to seeing Jodi again one day in Eternity.
I pray the Lord’s love and peace for you all as the Lord supplies your every need.
— Karen Johnson, Wednesday – April 5, 2017
David, Luke and Eli, words cannot express the sadness I am feeling. I’m glad our paths had crossed even if was for a short time. I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
— Deena Plovanich, Saturday – April 8, 2017
Trey and I extend our sympathies to you and your family. Jodi added a bright light to the gang and seemed to do that throughout her life.
