Jodie was an extremely kind and giving person and she will be greatly missed. She was a beautiful, well liked, fun young woman who judged no one and loved everyone. As a little girl she was very shy, but her confidence grew from strength to strength as she got older.
She loved college and was studying Psychology, Sociology and Photography at Havering Sixth Form. Her family, friends and her dog Woody meant the world to Jodie and there was never any hidden agenda, ever. She wore her heart on her sleeve and her infectious laugh would light up any room.
Jodie achieved the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Silver award and was just a few weeks away from completing her Gold! She was also an active scout member and volunteered on many different projects including the Great Runs 5k and supporting local scouting activities in Greater London North East for the younger Beaver and Cub sections. Jodie also gave her time and energy, volunteering at the Cub and Scout section of the 4th Barking and Dagenham Scouts where she touched the lives of other young people in her own inimitable way. This gives you an insight into her personality and of how she cared selflessly for other people.
She was learning to play classical music on her piano, also her extracurricular work on photography was a big passion and she would frequently go into London to take photos.
Jodie was simply a beautiful person whose life was cut short just as she was blossoming into a wonderful young woman.
