Jennifer Favors

Thirty-eight-year-old Jennifer Favors died suddenly while at school on Tuesday, Dec. 9.

Tri-Cities High School is mourning the sudden loss of one of its administrators, Jennifer Favors, who died Dec. 9.

Favors, 38, went to school Tuesday feeling unwell. Tri-Cities principal Dr. Ethel Lett said Favors complained about being short of breath, feeling light-headed and pain in her legs. Paramedics were called and Favors was rushed to the hospital, but were unable to save her.

Lett asked for prayers for the Bulldog Nation and that they will truly miss Favors.

“Jennifer Favors’ smile and glow were constant and her passion and commitment to her students and Tri-Cities High School were relentless,” East Point Mayor Deana Holiday Ingram tweeted. “The works she’s done and legacy she leaves speak for her. She was an exceptional educator and administrator and will truly be missed.”

Several community members also took to Twitter to share their condolences and memories of Favors. (tncms-inline)1337091494247796740[0](/tncms-inline)
