Jennifer Denise (Swimmer) Poole-Spikes passed away at the age of 44 on August 12, 2018 in Stockton, CA following a long illness. She was born on March 31, 1974 in Fremont, CA and moved to Tracy with her family in 1988.
Following her graduation from Tracy High School in 1992, she attended San Diego State University and married her high school sweetheart, Charles. Her marriage did not survive however but she remained friends with him and his family.
Her prior jobs included technical support for Erickson phones and Safeway corporate. She attended St. Paul's Lutheran church in Tracy.
Jennifer always could be counted on to help out where needed. She always had advice to offer and could be counted on for a warm, friendly smile. She was a singer and she liked the show Glee. Her football team was the San Francisco 49ers and while she will never admit it, she liked Star Trek like her dad.
Jennifer leaves behind her treasured children, twins Jahdai and Cierra Spikes; her father Kevin Poole and Step-Mother Danette all of Tracy; mother, Nancy Poole of Stockton; sisters, Stefani Specht of Omo Ranch, Bailey Poole of Tracy; step-siblings; Angelina Cardenas-Wise and Peter Caraway; and grandmother Loretta Groesbeck of Livermore. Two huge influences in her life, her aunt Cindy Hucko-Laliberte of Brentwood and former mother-in-law, Bonnadette Gaitan of Tracy; along with cousins; Crissy Diaz and Patrick Hucko who were more like siblings to her numerous extended family members of cousins, nieces and nephews. We love you and will see you again.
