Born, July 6th 1989, Sent to Heaven January 2, 2022

  Jennifer, who some liked to call “Jenny-Poo,” but definitely doesn’t like to be call Jenny, is survived by her husband, soulmate and life-long partner Justin E. Hawkins, of Toronto, along with their dog prince and cats Kiki and Ali.  Jennifer is also survived by her twin brother James Hunt, also from Toronto, her sister Chris Bernard and her loving Grandpa, Frank Bernard, from Cornerbrook, newfoundland, as well as Uncle Colin and Aunt Judy Hillier and cousins Christopher Hillier and Brandon Hillier, also from Newfoundland.    

“Lord Tunderin Jesus By”

  She leaves behind two girls as well, Nevaeh and little Jasmine Janette.     Jennifer was born in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland and lived most of her life in Toronto.     She was a beautiful wife, a mother, a sister, an aunt, a friend, she was a lot of things and could make anyone smile, even in our saddest moments.     She died suddenly at the age of 32, from Cardiac Arrest, at home in her bed.  She was in the arms of her husband, where she was loved very much and not alone.  Although she knew she was dying, she accepted it with pride, had a great attitude and a sense of humour whenever anyone saw her.     For her short time on earth, she was a harm reduction worker, a peer and an advocate for women working the streets of Toronto, and took pride in her work and loved helping others.  Whether it was making time to talk, to listen, sometimes laugh or, iif necessary, stand for a good fight….She was there.     After 2016, she was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and spent most of her time at home with her family, playing with her nephew Jayden and niece Eliza.  She also enjoyed playing  with and loving her pets, colouring and doing arts and crafts, or just watching movies with her husband Justin and their pets.  She loved clothing and looking great…no matter the weather, as long as she looked good.  But her passion for food and her appetite were bigger than life, she loved to cook and definitely loved to eat.  She was an amazing woman with a beautiful smile, and a devoted friend that will be missed by so many people.     Please be assured, she is on her way to heaven.  She is not in pain anymore, and would want her family and friends to cherish the memoires, be happy, stay funny, but most importantly, stay safe in this difficult time in life.

Jenn was very special person- a good soul. Her sense of humour was infectious. She was feisty. She stood up for what she believed and for those she loved. She was such an important part of our community. Jenn, it’s been an honour to know you. My sincere condolences to Justin and Jenn’s family.
