Jennifer Lisa Hicks was born to Gertrude and Cyril Hicks of Musgrave Harbour, Newfoundland and Labrador, in 1974. She went to Gill Memorial Academy for a few years before attending elementary school and Lester Pearson High School.
She started working at the Good Luck Restaurant in Valleyfield, Bonavista Bay, until she moved to Gander in 1997, where she began post-secondary education in business administration at the Career Academy. While in Gander, she began working at the Albatross Hotel.
In October 1997, Jennifer met and moved in with Nelson Hart, and soon after that she became a full-time mom. Her daughters, Karen and Krista, were born in March 1999. Jennifer’s life was turned upside down in 2002 when she lost the two most important people in her life, her precious daughters.
Today, Jennifer has a fiancé, Myles Gunn. Her life is better now, but it will never be the same without the two daughters she misses dearly.
