Jennifer Gallagher death news comes a shock; the angelic nurse had worked endlessly to take care of the Aurora shooting victims at the University of Colorado, last month.
Gallagher, 46, drowned on August 6th, after swimming at night in West Okoboji Lake in Iowa, according to information given by the Los Angeles Times. The body was found under a dock, the next day.
Jennifer Gallagher won the heart of President Barack Obama with her sincere dedication in helping the Aurora shooting victims. She had met the President on July 22 when he had visited the families and survivors at the hospital. Jennifer had been working at the University of Colorado for the past 13 years. She was also instrumental in opening the hospital’s neurological intensive care unit.
Gallagher is survived by her husband Greg and a 5 year old son. Greg said,”She worked the morning after the Batman massacre in a very busy unit of the hospital – so she saw everything really, some really bad injuries.”
Tributes have been flowing at the Denver Gaels ladies football team website of which Jenifer was a member. A team-mate described her as the most giving person who put others above her. Someone wrote, “When you met Jenny she brightened up your day and wanted to know how you were doing. Others always came first in the most natural and sincere way.”
