The VAB extends its deepest condolences to the family and many friends of Jennifer. Here’s her full obituary:
Jennifer McClintock, AKA Jennifer Foxx, 50, passed away on December 10, 2016 at home, wrapped in the warm love of her husband Brian and devoted daughters Holly, Celia and Mary. As many know, her favorite role in life was being Mommy. She waged a brave and graceful battle against a formidable foe, pancreatic cancer, with her head held high, purple hair and all, despite hefty challenges and unfavorable odds. She was inspiring to many. Jen made her struggle public, documented on mylifeline.org/Jennifer929 and on her STAR 92.9 radio show.

Jen was born in Holden, MA, the daughter of Fred and Dorothy Bowles. She grew up in Barre, MA graduating from Quabbin High and Mt. Wachusett College with a degree in Communications. After that, it was on to a radio career, with stops throughout the Northeast, finally landing at her beloved STAR 92.9, where she eventually ascended (Hallelujah!) to the role of program director, along with having an air shift. JFO loved her radio family: Ken Barlow, Mike and Mary, Rich, Karen, Dave, Ed, Jamie, and many more. She hosted a weekend show just weeks before she left us, racked with pain, but still happy to be in “the chair.”
Along with Brian and daughters, whom she each had a special closeness with; Jen leaves four wonderful siblings; Tim (Beth), Floyd (Laura), Cindy (Rob), and Dale (Frank). Also her very special mother-in-law, Sis McClintock, sister-in-law Gail Moreau (Tom) and many cherished cousins, nieces, nephews,stepdaughter Emily, close friends Barb,Tammy and a million more and… dog Mocha Ruff, Ruff!
JFO also blows a kiss to her listeners, many of whom have become friends. Hugs to her medical team, especially Amanda, Dr. Ades, and, of course, Janet Ely.
Funeral services were held at the First Congregational Church in Essex Junction on Saturday, December 17, 2016.
JFO HAS LEFT THE BUILDING, BUT HER SPIRIT LIVES!
