Jill was born on May 16th, 1969. She spent her childhood in Mount Joy with her two siblings, as well as her summers in memory-filled Maine. After graduating from Donegal High School, she graduated from Elizabethtown College for Business Administration/Marketing (at first for accounting, but that was too boring), with minors in Visual Arts and Communications. Jill worked at various marketing and communications based organizations, until 1993 when she founded RedClick Marketing, a marketing business and call center. It was a company she took pride in. She was also a very active member of the First Presbyterian Church of Mount Joy, where she had been a deacon, a Sunday school teacher and a choir member. Additionally she had been a president of Donegal Rotary, a member of Kiwanis, and the Chambers of Commerce in Lancaster, Mount Joy, and Elizabethtown.
Jill enjoyed spending time with her family, sitting by her pool, playing with her puppies (Bugsy and Levi), creating databases, and reading. She will be missed a great deal.
