Jennifer Lynn Young

  • Age: 17
  • Chelsea, MI
  • Chelsea High School

On November 11, 2000, Jennifer was in a car accident and lost her life along with two friends.  It was in the middle of the afternoon, returning from a Saturday playoff football game.  She was 17 and a senior in high school.  The girls were carpooling in a minivan and the driver fell asleep at the wheel.  The van was only going 40 mph, but going into the shoulder caused it to roll several times and ejecting the three girls in the back seat.    

Jennifer was a well-liked student, very active in numerous activities.  She lettered in track her freshman year, and was active in all forms of dance, including toe, ballet, modern, and jazz.  At the time of the accident, she was in the process of applying to dance programs at several different colleges.  

Jennifer was my only daughter, and second child.  Unfortunately, she passed before getting the chance to meet her two younger brothers.   She, like so many of the teens here on this site, are a perfect example of kids that you would never expect something like this to happen to.  I often wonder how she would have matured and grown into an adult, what she would have accomplished in her life, where she would live, and what she'd be doing, how many children she may have had.

She was able to accomplish so much in her relatively short time here, and touch so many lives.  She's deeply missed to this day by her family and friends everywhere.
