Jenny Montoya was such a beautiful loving and kind person. I worked for Jennifer for a while through Ogden Housing Authority. I have fond memories of visiting her in her office. She always impressed me with her position and status. Ahead of her time as a woman leader. She was always a wonderful mother and grandmother. Her youngest daughter Carmen is a very dear friend of mine. Im sending love and hugs to all of her family.
