After graduating, Jennifer went on to receive her Bachelor of Science degree in Paralegal Studies from UNI. After completing her education, Jennifer made her home in Des Moines where she worked at Rain & Hail Insurance & most recently at Wells Fargo as an Occupational Risk Analyst in the legal department. During her time away from work, Jennifer enjoyed loving on her beloved dogs Brady & Bing, spending time with her friends, having crazy adventures (including Black Friday shopping trips with her little sister) & most of all completely spoiling her nieces & nephews whenever possible, who lovingly called her “AJ”. Nine years ago, Jennifer was diagnosed with cancer, a fight that was in every word, courageous. Cancer may have taken time from Jennifer but it gave her a closeness with her family and friends that is simply irreplaceable. She will be deeply missed by her siblings, Michael (Dannette) Roethler of Charles City, IA and Kate (Darren) Dieterich of Cedar Falls, IA; her nieces and nephews, Megan Roethler, Drew Roethler, Brynn Roethler, Morgan Dieterich, Willie Dieterich and Adie Dieterich; numerous aunts and uncles and extended family. She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Mary.
