Jill was born Au­gust 26, 1965 in White Plains, New York and moved to Raleigh in 1973. As a youth she was very com­pet­i­tive and ac­tive in mul­ti­ple sports in­clud­ing golf, soft­ball, bas­ket­ball, and vol­ley­ball. Her big­gest pas­sion was for soc­cer as a long­time mem­ber of the De­featers soc­cer team. She car­ried this com­pet­i­tive spirit through high school at Mill­brook and as a schol­ar­ship vol­ley­ball player at Wake For­est Univer­sity. She grad­u­ated with a de­gree in Psy­chol­ogy and went on to ob­tain a Master’s de­gree in Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Coun­sel­ing from UNC Chapel Hill.

Pro­fes­sion­ally Jill used her com­pas­sion and em­pa­thy in the field of coun­sel­ing at Rex Hos­pi­tal. As the Di­rec­tor of RexAware, she and her depart­ment pro­vided sup­port for hos­pi­tal em­ploy­ees and their fam­i­lies as an Em­ployee As­sis­tance Pro­gram. Jill even­tu­ally moved to the Rex Can­cer Cen­ter coun­sel­ing pa­tients and their loved ones. She also co­or­di­nated Kid­sCan!, a pro­gram to pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion, emo­tional sup­port, peer em­pa­thy, and in­spi­ra­tion for chil­dren with a par­ent hav­ing can­cer.

In her per­sonal life, Jill adored her fam­ily and most en­joyed spend­ing time with them and friends. Whether on va­ca­tion or sim­ply en­ter­tain­ing at home, Jill had a vi­brant spirit and per­son­al­ity which was en­joyed by all. She also took up am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­phy, pro­vid­ing a life­time of mem­o­ries for close ones to cher­ish.
