December 15, 1986 - February 2, 2021
Jennifer "JennJenn" Weaver, 34, of Bradley, Illinois, passed away peacefully at Advocate Children's Hospital on Tuesday, February 2, 2021. "JennJenn" was born on December 15, 1986, in Kankakee, Illinois, the daughter of Scott & Jill (Skubic) Weaver and little sister to Krysta Paige. The relationship she had with her sister, Krysta, was not like any other. Jennifer adored her big sister, who both had a love for each other that was unmatched. Jennifer was part of a loving, giving, and caring family who most can only dream about growing up in and was blessed to have her parents and sister in her time on this earth. Jennifer grew up in Bradley, Illinois, attending the Bourbonnais Grade School and Bradley Bourbonnais Community High School. During her school years, Jennifer enjoyed her Arts & Crafts classes making many beautiful Tie Blankets that she would give as gifts, and later she enjoyed the Nursing Classes that she enrolled in. Jennifer was a loving and compassionate person who loved to be silly and laugh. She had the most beautiful smile that could light up a room and every soul in it. When you would see Jennifer, her whole face would light up, and she always was ready to offer a big hug and a kiss to all. Jennifer loved her family and always looked forward to family gatherings around the holidays laughing and telling stories. She loved the annual trip for apple picking at Spring Hope Apple Orchard in Michigan with her parents and big sister. She so enjoyed the yearly visit to Covered Bridge Festival in Parke County, Indiana, along with concerts and shopping with her big sister Krysta along with being a huge Bears and Cubs fan were some of her favorite things to do. One of Jennifer's passions was that she loved and adored her many pets over the years who adored her as well. Because of her love for animals, she spent a big part of her time supporting causes that would benefit them. She always unselfishly requested that money be given to Tuff Dawg Rescue for her birthday. Barely a day went by that she didn't post on Facebook about an animal in need or posting about a fundraising event for Tuff Dawgs Rescue, Inc in Kankakee, Illinois, asking for support for this great cause. Jennifer also had a personal interest in the Ronald McDonald House near the Advocate Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois, where Jennifer and her family spent an inordinate amount of their lives because of the many heart problems. Jennifer would always be asking people to help this great cause that benefited her family and countless others. Jennifer had to stay many times at Advocate Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. Jennifer's generosity for these two causes showed the loving and giving nature that she inherited from her parents that Jennifer was blessed to have. The Weavers would like to extend their many thanks and express how grateful they are to the many doctors and staff at Advocate Children's Hospital. They treated Jennifer for practically her entire life. With nine open-heart surgeries and countless procedures and tests over the many years, Jill and Scott Weaver are forever indebted to the many people who attended to their daughter and were the reason they were able to have Jennifer in their lives and be able to cherish her this long.
