Eulogy for CPT Jennifer Moreno

J. Moreno

Written by Dr. Susan Prion, Associate Professor on October 9, 2013

Jennifer M Moreno came to us in the fall of 2006 as an intelligent young woman and she left us 4 years later as a smart, capable, and compassionate Baccalaureate-prepared nurse and Jesuit-educated Army officer. At first, she was my advisee, then my student, and finally, she became my colleague and my friend.
