Obituary of Jennifer Jane Copp

We are heartbroken to share that the world lost Jennifer Jane (Grooms) Copp (age 50) on early Wednesday morning, October 27, 2021. Jenn was born on July 1, 1971 in Coldwater, Michigan. She spent a lot of her childhood and early teen years in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, and then in 9th grade moved to Copley, Ohio (and later Fairlawn), graduating from Copley High School in 1989. Jenn has always been talented, and while in school she showcased this by being active in sports, drama, and music. She played basketball, ran cross country, and was a strong softball player. Jenn was beautiful, funny, quirky, clever, and full of life, and as such she had leading roles in plays and musicals all throughout high school. She was a member of the symphonic choir and was very involved in her church youth group also. Following graduation, Jenn attended Kent State University to pursue Interior Design, and later transferred to Cameron University where she graduated with honors with a Bachelor's degree in Communication in December 1993. During the summer between her sophomore and junior years at Kent State, she met the love of her life and future husband Mike while working at a restaurant. They quickly fell deeply in love, and despite the challenge of a long-distance relationship, remained committed to one another. Their first daughter Sydney was born December 1, 1992 while both she and Mike were still in college. After graduating, they began their lifelong commitment in marriage on January 8, 1994. They lived in Coldwater, Michigan initially, and later moved to Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1995. They bought their first house together in Portage, Michigan in April 1997 to prepare for the coming of their second daughter Madison, who was born July 13, 1997. In March 2000, they moved to Madison, Alabama as a result of a career change by Mike, and since July 2001 Jenn and family have called Murfreesboro, Tennessee their home. Jenn loved living in Tennessee, and she and Mike both felt as though they belonged here. It was here that they built a house and more importantly a home, raised their family, started and strengthened their own traditions, forged many new relationships, found great church homes, and continued to grow as individuals and as a couple. Jenn was hugely invested in her kids’ lives and her family, but she also started to learn more about, and become confident in, her own talents, gifts, and strengths. She began a journey of business ownership, volunteering, and work that prepared her for the place where she would find so much significance later in life with doTERRA. doTERRA became more than a business to Jenn. It was a vehicle that allowed her to blossom and achieve, and find fulfillment personally and professionally. It was where her God-given talents and strengths intersected with her passion for loving and helping people. Jenn was a beautiful, amazing, independent woman who loved Jesus and led her life with intentionality. She was thoughtful, generous, loving, giving, caring, loyal, smart, imaginative, funny, and real. She was an incredible wife, mother, daughter, sister, cousin, AJ, niece, and friend. She was a leader, mentor, encourager, motivator, strategic, and wonderfully creative. Jenn left an immense, indelible mark on all those who knew her. Her personality and energy and laugh were all contagious, and people loved to be around her. She loved and enjoyed her life and looked forward to her future with eager anticipation. She loved the season that she was in being an empty nester with Mike, a mom and friend to Sydney and Madison, a friend with the freedom and flexibility to give her time when called upon or as the mood struck her. Jenn's life revolved around her family whom she loved so much, and she loved to spend time with them. Her friends, her business, her church were all hugely important to her and vital pieces of her life. Jenn was a self-described social person, and she simply loved being around the people she loved. She enjoyed traveling, especially to resorts and hanging by the pool or beach, already planning the next trip; camping in the fall and sitting around a campfire for hours; playing games; DIY projects for her house or others; going to the movies; date nights; Needtobreathe concerts; plays and musicals; bonfires in the backyard; Mexican food and homemade sangria; tubing and lazy rivers; cooking for family and others in need; planning for anything fun or to help others. Really whatever let her be with the people she loved. We know Jenn loved Jesus with all her heart, she shared her faith easily and without judgement. We take comfort in the promise that we will see her again in Heaven with our loving Savior. We are beyond grateful for the time we had with Jenn, but for all of us who loved her there is an immeasurable hole in our hearts. We will forever feel her loss from our lives. Our dearest and beloved Jenn, you will be deeply and inexpressibly missed. But we will never forget you. Jenn is survived by her husband of 27 years, Mike Copp; her daughters, Sydney (Copp) Fleming and Drew Fleming, and Madison (Copp) Burkhart and Matthew Burkhart, Jr; her parents Edgar and Sandra Grooms; her brothers, Lance Grooms (Austin, TX), Matthew Grooms (Austin, TX). She is predeceased by her sister Sara (Grooms) Henry. Please join us to celebrate Jenn’s amazing life. The visitation will be held at Murfreesboro Funeral Home on November 6, 2021 from 3-6 PM. Following the visitation, a Celebration of Life service for family and friends will take place immediately after in the same location. Jenn loved flowers, and it would do nothing more to please us than to see her room overflowing with flowers. The family would like to thank everyone who has already sent their condolences or donated meals. If you would like to send a special memory and/or picture of Jenn, please feel free to bring them with you to the Celebration of Life service or email your special memories here: sydney.copp@gmail.com You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. Psalm 139:13-16 So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. Romans 8:1-2
