    Jennifer was incredibly sweet, exceptionally kind, and above all she loved children. She was a wonderful human being who cared deeply for her family, friends, and her students. On December 9th, 2017, she unexpectedly passed away, and we lost an incredible person.

    Jen and Joe were joyously waiting for the birth of their baby boy, Tyler who was due very soon on December 27th. As many of you may know, Tyler was a gift to Jen and Joe because they had wanted a child for a long time but had trouble conceiving. When they found out Jen was pregnant, they were ecstatic. Jen loved children, and she would have been an amazing mother.

    On the night of December 9th, 2017, Jen suffered from shortness of breath and pain in her chest. Joe was with her, comforted her, and tried to ease her pain. Her breathing became labored, and she stopped breathing. Joe administered CPR and called 911. Jen died that night at the hospital.

    Baby Tyler is in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and breathing through a respirator. He became oxygen deprived when Jen fell ill. Joe is with Baby Tyler during these difficult times and comforts him with thoughts of Jen. Tyler's prognosis is unknown and precarious at this time. Please pray for his well-being and recovery.

    We love Jen and Joe. We will miss Jen greatly while we pray and hope for the best for Baby Tyler and Joe. Through this GoFundMe effort for Joe, we hope to help in any way in his current circumstances whether it is for Jen's memorial expenses or Baby Tyler's medical expenses.

    Your donation is greatly appreciated.

    Article said she was due about 3 weeks after she passed away. Baby was almost full term but it sounds like because she couldn't breathe, the baby lost oxygen. Maybe brain damage? so sad...

    I was looking for a thread and ran across this one and did some googling. Looks like the baby died too.

    We are so saddened to hear that Baby Tyler joined led Jennifer this past weekend. We loved Mrs Sakatani's way with children a do beautiful smile and light! Blessings and prayers and hugs at this difficult time love, The Morinaga family
    Jennifer and I shared many conversations about so many things, including, her desire to be a mom. We laughed about funny things that our students at Fremont had said or done. I'm so saddened to learn about the loss of Baby Tyler and Jennifer.

    The pregnancy was a contributing factor/cause?

    I wonder if it put extra stress on her heart/cardio system?

    Yes it happens most in the third trimester. It has to do with the hyperdynamic state and hormonal effect on vasculature. I read it from some health site but my copy/paste is not working.
