Jennie Lynn Guarisco

March 8, 1955 ~ August 21, 2017 (age 62)

Jennie Lynn Guarisco, 62, passed peacefully on August, 21, 2017 among family in her home in New Orleans, LA after a courageous three year battle with pancreatic cancer. Beloved daughter, sister, mother, aunt, wife, grandmother, and great grandmother, Jennie is survived by her parents Leonard and Rose Guarisco of Morgan City, LA; brother Leonard Guarisco Jr. with wife Judy and their children Constance Guarisco Wallace, husband Rick and children Grant and Parker, Sarah Guarisco and Greg Guarisco; brother Patrick Guarisco with his children Joslynn Guarisco Matherne, husband Caleb, and Patrick Guarisco Jr.; brother Brent Guarisco with partner Chris Cameron; son Christopher Ortis with his children Carlynn Elizabeth, Ryan, and great grandson Cullen; daughter, Serena Ortis Lynn with grand daughter Carmen Rose; and husband Carlos Monge with his children Charlie and Tyler Monge and grandson Henry. Jennie dedicated her time and talents to the New Orleans Saints organization for fifteen years leading up to and after the Superbowl XLIV victory as Executive Assistant to the Owner Mr. Tom Benson. To be in Jennie’s presence was to feel unconditional love. So great it could not be contained; befittingly departed and began her new life during the solar eclipse, a rare, grand and unique moment that stands in testimony of her. For family and friends, she co-created a world of love, strength and intent with triumphant resolve. So grateful to have had Jennie in our lives we lovingly accept this greatest gift and are left shadowed in her greatness, humbled and honored.
