"Year ago, Jansma discovered she had head and throat cancer. And Wednesday evening, she died at age 22 in a Florida hospital, leaving Carolina Ballet dancers and staff forlorn as they prepared for Thursday's opening night of its run of "Cabaret."

May she rest in peace...

My heart goes out to her family and friends. Life's path is uncertain and she is in my prayers. May she be at peace.

I did not know Jennifer very well, but I will always remember her as a student. Her personal strength and determination enabled her to make tremendous strides as a dancer in a very short period of time, and I admired her for that. She was a hard worker; it seemed that she worked (in her dancing) with an unusually clear focus- undaunted by any challenge. I wish I had known her better. I offer my sympathy to all who knew her.
