Obituary for Jennifer Suzanne (Ford) Friedrich

June 20, 1969 - April 19, 2017
San Antonio, Texas | Age 47


Jennifer Suzanne (Ford) Friedrich was born at Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth, TX. She graduated from Coppell High School, Coppell, TX, in 1987. She received her bachelor's degree from Texas State University, San Marcos, TX, in 2003 and was certified to teach theatrical arts and math. As the director of the Theatre/Drama Department at John Paul Stevens High School in San Antonio, Jennifer's dream came true because she was the benefactor of talented students, encouraging them to learn, explore, and be proactive to opportunities. She was also an enthusiastic supporter of the other artistic school activities. As the coordinator and chaperon of student trips to New York City, she embraced the love of theatrical arts to her students.

Recently, Jennifer and her husband, Darrell, were recognized by Northside Education Foundation with the "Unsung Hero" award for their "behind-the-scenes" technical expertise for various foundation meetings and productions throughout the district.

Jennifer was preceded in death by her father, Lt. Col (Retired) Laymond N. Ford, Sr. She is survived by her husband, Darrell Friedrich, and their two sons, Corwyn and Devyn, living in San Antonio. Other survivors are her mother, Doris (Harrison) Ford, Haslet, TX; sisters, Katie Ford in Waxahachie, TX, Trish Ford in Altamonte Springs, FL; brothers, Skip (Jennie) Ford in Haslet, TX; Jim Ford in Austin, TX, and Jonathan (Stacy) Ford in North Richland Hills, TX; uncle, James (Elaine) Harrison in Dallas; plus, numerous nieces and nephews.
