Damele in Eureka, Nevada, and passed away on August 3 rd , 2020. She was married to Bryan
Jennifer was raised on several family owned ranches in Nevada and Idaho and loved to
help her father Stephen operate them. Jennifer always had a strong gravitational pull to her, and
her laugh and smile could be heard and seen from a mile away. Growing up she made many
lifelong friends and was voted prom queen at her high school, along with devoting her time to
the school’s volleyball and basketball team. Jennifer had such a lust for the outdoors, hunting
fishing or just being out. Her and her husband Bryan would go on outdoor adventures nearly
every weekend from just camping to riding around on their RZR, it was what she loved to do.
Every year they took a trip to Moab for a weeklong adventure with all their friends to ride and
just hang out. She would talk about it all year every year. She had a strong affinity for wine and
chocolate, and always had to have at least a couple cups of coffee a day. Jennifer was a loving
wife and mother and devoted her life to her family. Jennifer never missed a single football or
basketball game either of her kids, Austin and Robyn, participated in, and attended every single
school event without fail. She was a strong, hardworking woman who always stood up for what
she believed in, and always had answers to any problem anyone faced and loved helping her
family and friends in anyway needed and always remained a constant voice of wisdom. Words
cannot describe the influential impact she had on everyone around her. Jennifer was loved by
many, and she loved her family and friends with everything she had and will always be
remembered for the incredible soul she was.

Michael and Robyn Elizabeth. Her mother Polly Damele. Her brother Stephen and wife Sarah
