I was not a big fan of her but I did recognize the big struggles she went through. She is admired not because of her talent but because she was a common hispanic woman that had to struggle so much to reach her success. I am glad she got the nominations and I know she would of still gotten them even if the accident didn't occur. I still can't believe people would be so harsh like really if your mother would of died would you like it if I sai, "HAHAHA we still live with or without her so I am glad she is dead." So I believe they wouldn't like it either.

Yeah for Jenni! Although she is gone, don't be surprised, she would have been nominated no matter what. She was at a high peek in her career. Regardless if people are buying more of her music now. People were already buying it before to begin with. Missing her is meaning she will not record new music again and see her perform again..

I didn't know a thing about Jenni. Having lost several friends over the years to accidents, I know the pain it brings to family and friends. My condolences to jenni's loved ones.
