I was very sad to discover that Jennifer Rardin passed away suddenly on Monday, September 20, 2010. She was a very young 45 years of age, a native to my home state of Illinois and a graduate of Eastern Illinois University as am I. Jennifer Rardin was the author of the popular Jaz Parks Series. She made herself accessible to her fans, making appearances at local bookstores. I didn't know Ms. Rardin, but I did enjoy her books and I'm truly saddened by her loss. It's unbelievable with someone with so much to offer, so much left to do, has been taken away. We've lost a wonderful author and to her friends and family, you have my deepest condolences.
