Jill met her husband, Christopher, in 1996. They were married on August 19, 2000. From their 19-year union, they were blessed with two children, Isaiah Christopher and Imani Vashon. Jill enjoyed celebrating life! Whether she was celebrating her birthday, the holidays (Christmas being her favorite), her children, or the accomplishments of others, she did it wholeheartedly. Jill was an avid Steelers fan which was a constant source for argument with many of the Bengals fans in the family. She loved her family, friends, and hosting ‘Soul Food’ gatherings at home. Jill was a GREAT cook. When Jill was 11 years old, to her mother’s surprise, she had prepared a full meal using a gas stove. When she wasn’t out and about you could usually find her watching her favorite TV shows, The Golden Girls and Andy Griffith.
