  1. Janielle was one of my favorite surprises about working in the Governor's Office. She was always positive and a problem solver. From day one I valued her work, her smile her attitude, and her friendship. She will remain in my thoughts and prayers. I wish I could be at her memorial on Friday, but will be away. I will never understand why the best of us leave too soon. God bless her and family, Peter Siggins

  2. July 1, 1997! My first day as a new employee at the California Department of Justice, Office of the Attorney General. You were my first friend. I sat next to you. The office used DOS and I'd used Windows so long I had forgotten the DOS prompts. You calmed me down, showed me things I had forgotten, demonstrated how things were done and allowed me to squeak by! Three years as my neighbor at work. We shared 40-hours a week. I met your son, visited you at your home, you baby sat Sophia, and we went to the office parties together and hit the town after work when you were free to do so. We shared secrets and kept them. Had each other's back and kept each other's head up! I'll miss you but I know you are getting everything organized and setting up yet another welcome for me, filled with the same care, concern, and kindness as you demonstrated the day we met. Making sure all is well, I'm not afraid, and we are good. Until we meet again, dear Janielle Jenkins, love, forever your Johnny Boy

  3. Although I have not had any contact with Janielle in years, other than seeing her posts on Facebook, what I remember most of Janielle was from High School and her contagious laugh. It always brought a smile to my face hearing her laugh. I had several classes with her at Elk Grove. I will always remember her laugh. She and her family will be in my prayers.
