Condolence: Very sad to hear of her passing. She was such a remarkable woman and loved hearing her stories. My dad use to call her his special girlfriend because of their lunch dates.

Condolence From: Tripp & Trudi'
Condolence: She certainly was a wonderful and loving woman. So talented and so smart. She always had a smile and was always looking out for her family and friends. Jodi was truly an inspiration to many young dancers she taught throughout the years. A special spark was placed in her heart and that lite up and was felt by so many. She now will be dancing truly among the stars of heaven.
