Jennifer was born on February 1, 1970 in Youngstown, Ohio, a daughter of MaryAnne (Esker) Dowdell Corll and the late Robert W. Dowdell. She resided in Austintown and then with her mother in Boardman when she became ill. Jennifer had a big heart, always helping those in need. She was generous to a fault.

Besides her father, Jennifer was also preceded in death by her stepfather, Robert F. Corll.
