She graduated from Barnstable High School in 2002. She worked in the Hospitality Industry for years; recently she worked at the Carousel in Salisbury, MA.

Jill Ellen was a compassionate loving individual who left a mark on everyone she met. She had an aura of light that she brought into a room, her unbelievable smile and her infectious laughter brought joy to everyone’s heart. You never wanted her to leave; she gave peace to your soul. She was a forceful presence that reminded you to live life to its fullest and she lived life in a positive outlook. She was kind, warm, and compassionate, yet a strong individual who never backed down. She was honest and told you what you needed to hear even when it was unpleasant. She was a spirited soul who ran wild through the world and lived each day to the fullest. She truly will be missed by all.
