SUFFOLK—Jennifer Michelle Pollard, born on April 9, 2008, went to live with Jesus on Monday, July 14, 2014. Our beautiful “Angel Girl” daughter served her God in many ways, and especially as His instrument to draw many together in prayer as she was suddenly thrust in the short fight for her life by a very rare disease.

She loved hopping, playing with balls, singing, chasing bubbles and balloons and swinging. She also loved being read to.

Jennifer is survived by her parents, Carolyn Jackson and J. Michael Pollard; her twin sister, Julia Caroline Pollard; her Granny Betty Jackson of Lawrenceville; her PaPa Johnie Pollard and Grandma Shirley Pollard of Morehead City, North Carolina; uncles and aunts: Bruce and Penny Jackson of Williamsburg; Greg and Cindy Jackson of Courtland; Faye and James Cree of Prescott, Arizona; and cousins: Emily Jackson and Bruce Jackson II of Williamsburg; Dana, Jason, Jada and Duncan Brittle of Courtland; Molly Jackson of Charlotte, North Carolina; Kimberley Cree and Kaitlyn Cosentino of Prescott; and James Cree IV of Denver, Colorado.

She is also survived by her very loving church family and very special friends.

Jennifer was predeceased by her maternal grandfather, B. Waylon Jackson; her paternal grandmother, Deles “Dell” Pollard; and beloved Jack Dog.

Special thanks go to the many new friends she made while being so sweetly and lovingly cared for at the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters, Norfolk: the Hospitalist Team, the Hematology/Oncology Team, the PICU Team, the Child Life Team, the Chaplain Team, and so many others.
