Jennifer (Jen) Williamson, 51, a dedicated teacher in the Paramus Public School system, passed away on May 17, 2018. 
Jen, a longtime Paramus resident, taught in the same grade and same classroom in East Brook Middle School for 20 years — her entire teaching career. Jen truly loved teaching. She was so committed to her students that she hardly ever left her fifth-grade classroom, except to come and go for the day.
Her students were so taken with her warmth and nurturing presence that you would often find her students in her classroom during lunch and after school. Former students also frequently stopped by to visit. "Ms. Williamson was a soft spoken, sweet, and gentle soul who showed kindness to everyone she met. She made every student feel loved and understood,” said a former student, a sentiment echoed by almost everyone that ever had the good fortune of getting to know Jen.
Williamson had the ability to create a sense of curiosity and love of learning in every student she taught. She also helped them to dream big and believe that they could become whatever they wanted to be. As an educator, this is the greatest gift a teacher could give her students.
Born Jennifer Marie Williamson in Englewood, NJ she spent some her early years in nearby Oakland before she and her family moved to Paramus when she was 10. She graduated from Paramus High School in 1984. She went on to earn a bachelor's degree in communications and economics with a minor in English from Rutgers University and later a master’s in early childhood and elementary education from New York University. 
Jen had a smile that could light up an entire room. She was well known for her generous and loving heart and her incredible thoughtfulness, always putting others’ needs before her own. Jen’s family and dogs were the center of her universe. There is nothing that she wouldn’t do for them. She is survived by her mother, Dolores Williamson, her husband, Kevin Kennedy, and brother Doug Williamson. 

Family will receive friends on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 and Wednesday, May 23, 2018 from 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm at the Vander Plaat Memorial Home, 113 South Farview Avenue, Paramus. Funeral Mass on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 10:00 am at Our Lady of the Visitation R.C. Church, 234 North Farview Avenue, Paramus. Interment George Washington Memorial Park, Paramus.

As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers memorial contributions in memory of her beloved dogs Bailey and Sweet Pea may be made to The Franklin Lakes Animal Hospital online at www.animalfriendsoffranklinlakes.org

A shared letter from Muffie on the eve of our 55th Reunion....

Dear Friends, dear Schoolmates,

Some of you may recall seeing me at the 25th, 40th and 50th Anniversary Reunion of PHS Class of '63. Now five years have gone swiftly away in a blink.
We had such a good time in September 2013: good company, good food, good music, memories and laughter and just a hint of nostalgia. Not for the boys and girls we had been 50 years before, but for all the dreams and the expectations we could share in 1963. Or simply for that magic age when most of one's life lies ahead with all its promises and the world seems a wonderful place. Did life keep its promises? Is the world still such a wonderful place?
I believe that your last year of high school was important for all of you, it's when you took important decisions, it's when you fell in love, it's when you made long lasting friendships. But I am absolutely sure that for none of you it was as important as for me.
When I try to remember things that happened in my youth, I always enter them into the "before I went to Paramus" or into the "after I came back from Paramus" files. Everything was different because I was different.
I had to go back to my Italian school for one more year before graduating. It was hard: before leaving, my school records had always been very good; after coming back they were much worse. I failed in various subjects, like ancient Greek language or Philosophy, because of what I had missed in between. My teachers didn't seem to appreciate what I had learned during my year in the States. This influenced also my University results.
It took me a long time before I could find my way and turn the obstacles and difficulties I had encountered into something that enriched my experience.
After quite a few years I became a teacher. I felt that I was different from the other Italian teachers. I could never face my students without remembering how I had loved my school year in Paramus, especially thanks to the relationship with my teachers. I spent a lot of time with my students, I ran a drama group, I organised poetry recitals etc. I enjoyed it very much and I still do: last year we had an informal and very lively reunion of 50 of my former "actors", spontaneously set up just for the pleasure of sharing memories. I participated with my husband, who had always supported me in all these activities (a precious help, let me tell you!).
Much of this I owe to Mr. Morganti's class. And much, much more to Jean Hartenfels of course. I never can think of my year in Paramus without recalling the generous, caring, wonderful hospitality of the Hartenfels family. I simply joined in as their third daughter. Their house became home. I was welcomed with confidence, tenderness, fun, open mindedness. This continued also after they were struck by the tragic sudden loss of Mr. Hartenfels, on January 2nd, 1963, first day of school after Christmas vacations. Sharing this terrible experience made Jeannie and me real "sisters", the way we called each other for the rest of our lives. The strong bond between Jeannie and me was tightened by me coming over and her coming to Italy and staying with me various times.
In 2013, when the Class of '63 met for brunch the day following the official reunion, many of us talked about you, my friends, coming and visiting me in Italy. I was ready to organise a "tour" of the most important sites around my town (not far from Venice and the Alps). We thought that it would have been great if we could make it a sort of a general 70th birthday present for each one of us. One month and a half later, Jeannie suddenly passed away. All those plans dissolved. I then realised that I had not only lost a sister. I had also lost many of my dearest memories of people, places and events of my American year. Unfortunately I am quite forgetful and she used to help me very much. She could remember better than me, how I had felt during my first days in school, when I couldn't understand almost anything of what people said. She could remember my words (and my mistakes); and she remembered exactly how many English muffins I could devour, so that she called me "Muffie", as you all know me.
I am very grateful to Henry Hensel and those of you that keep in touch: it makes me feel that I still belong to Class of '63. It makes me cheer up when somebody celebrates his/her birthday, it makes me mourne when a friend leaves, like dear Mike Capitman. This link is very precious for me!
I wish you a very joyful reunion: I'll be thinking of you!
Muffie
