Jen lived in Monte Vista, Colorado until the family moved to El Paso, TX for a year. They then moved to Alamosa and later to Colorado Springs. Jen graduated in 1991 from the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind in Colorado Springs, as she was visually impaired. She lived independently in Colorado Springs and then Burlington until 2013, when her declining health made it necessary for her to have round the clock care, at which time she began living with her mom. She met her caregiver and good friend Tabatha Drullinger then.
