Jenna Lynn Bartholomew, age 36 of Yorkville, IL passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL following an Auto Immune Illness. She was born on April 17, 1986 in Aurora, IL.
Jenna was united in marriage on March 12, 2022 to Sara Nicole Cooper. She was the proud owner of JB’s Mobile Munchies food truck service. Jenna was a volunteer at the 3:11 project in Yorkville, IL. Jenna was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and cousin who will be deeply missed by her family and many friends.
Jenna had a heart of gold and was ALWAYS thinking of others. She loved to cook, and food was her passion. She loved her dogs as they were human, especially her Chimichanga. She was a life-long Green Bay Packers Fan and loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as well.
Jenna was a registered organ donor, and the Gift of Hope has been amazing throughout this process. There was an Honor Walk for Jenna on the way to the Operating Room and it was a beautiful tribute to her donation. She has the potential to prolong the lives of up to 88 people. In true Jenna B Fashion, she would leave the physical world by giving to others.
