    Jean was such an important part of Edward Jones for so many years, and will be missed by her “other” family. My sincerest condolences to Jean’s family, and to her associates and acquaintances through Edward Jones. Jean, I’ll miss seeing you at next year’s BOA MPC!

    My deepest sympathy to Jean’s family, friends, and all our Edward Jones family. She was such a precious person who always kept us laughing. Our Regional Meetings will not be the same without our Jean Jean from Aberdeen as she affectionately called herself. We all loved our Ms. Jean. I am proud to have known her.

    We are proud to have known Ms. Jean. She will be sorely missed. She always helped us, and when we saw her she had a quick smile and greeting and we will miss her little stories and easy laugh. She was a special person. We are very sad to know she is gone.

    It was truly a blessing to Ms. Jean. Words can not express the shock and sadness I felt when I heard she had pass. What a remarkable woman. Going by the offices of Edward Jones will just not be the same without her wonderful smile. God bless her family. She was truly a special person.
