    As a psychology Professor at OC, OUC, and UBCO, I knew Jeanine from Facilities because she stood out from the others with her joviality and kindness, no
    matter what was going on in the politics of these institutions and yes! she knew all about it, and was very discrete! I am shocked to hear of her passing!
    My condolences to all of her family and friends particularly Darrin, whom I remember too! With Love! Paul Gabias

    I'm so sorry to hear this sad news.
    Jeanine brought such a positive attitude to her work and life. She was always a co-worker you could reach out to for help and know she would do whatever she could for you.
