Jennifer Brubaker-Meeuwse
October 17,1980 -October 16, 2020
Jennifer was born on October 17, 1980 in Modesto, California to Mark and Susan Brubaker. Jen grew up in Salida, California. She attended K-8 grade in Salida and Grace M. Davis High School in Modesto. After graduating from Davis High in 1998, she attended Long Beach State University. In typical Jen fashion, she graduated in three years with a BS in Liberal Studies. Jen started her career with Escalon Premier Brands in 2001. While working she completed her Master’s degree in Business/ Marketing. Jennifer married Jason Meeuwse in 2001 and they made their home in Ripon, California. They welcomed their first daughter, Jaelyn in 2005, and their second daughter, Jordyn in 2007.
   Jen’s entire world revolved around her two girls. She was always involved heavily in whatever activity they chose. Over the years this included cheerleading, volleyball, softball and soccer, just to name a few. Jen was also actively involved in her girls' education. She led numerous school fundraisers and was the President of the PFC at Park View Elementary. As the girls got older, they settled in on softball and soccer as their true passions. You could always find Jen cheering on her world from the stands or the sidelines.
   Through Jen’s involvement in school function and sporting events, she made numerous lifelong friendships. Family was important to Jen and always came first. If you were a friend of Jen’s, you were considered family!
   Jennifer is survived by her husband of 19 years, Jason Meeuwse, daughter Jaelyn and Jordyn Meeuwse, parents Mark and Susan Brubaker, brother Zack (Chanele) Brubaker, and nephews Preston and Cooper Brubaker.
